Pick ups in a Tal Farlow

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what pickups are in a Tal Farlow. What I know is that there are two humbuckers but what are they? My guess is that they are '57 Classics but I'm just guessing. I'd appreciate your advice. Thanks.

Unusually there is no spec quoted anywhere, even the current model...

Yeah that's what I couldn't understand. When I went on the internet the articles I found just refer to humbuckers! A bit of a mystery!!

Hi Alan,

 

I think I read somewhere that they are 57 Classics. Fairly standard choice for Gibson's laminate archtops.

 

But if they were to sound anything like the 57 Classics in my 2002 ES345 and I wanted to play jazz, I'd be swapping them out for something that more closely captures the tone of a bucker from that period.

 

I have tried Tal Farlow models from time to time. I didn't get a sense that they had some "unique" quality compared to other Gibson laminate archtops such as a 175 or a 350 - or even a 335/345/355. I think the idea is that you buy one if you are after a laminate box with 25 1/2" scale length.
