Gibson L6-S Bridge pickup


Recommended Posts

I have an L6-S with a missing bridge pickup. The original was a 3 wire pickup (someone replaced it with a 2 wire DeMarzio) and needless to say, half of the positions on the 6 way selector dont work.


What would be a suitable replacement pickup for this guitar. My main concern is to get the 6 way selector working in all positions.

The L6S used Gibson "Super Humbucking" pickups. These were around 7.8K Ohms, and used a Ceramic magnet. The closest we currently have is the 496R pickup (which could be used in both positions).


Email us at service@gibson.com for the schematic and diagram- we have this info available.
