Burstbucker vs Custombucker

Recommended Posts

Interesting...I have an R8 with custom buckers and a 2010 standard with burst buckers and a harness upgrade.

 

This is (in my opinion) a really accurate comparison.

 

 

To my ears, they sound very similar, but the custom has just a hint more to it.....a bit more "open-ness" that I really like. Slightly better individual string definition.

 

 

Glad to know the difference I hear with my own guitars isn't just my imagination.

 

 

Either one is a GREAT pickup for sure.

For the pickups used in the video, I think the BB's are potted and CB's are not. Same for yours I believe. Unless you bought your BB's as parts.
