BurstBucker Pros - Are they close?

Recommended Posts

Close but maybe not the closest.

According to the official Gibson site the 57 Classic and Classic Plus are first in line for that.

Burstbuckers maybe second.

Have a look, see what you think.

The truth of the matter is that the original PAFs had a lot of variation/inconsistencies back then, so we have a range of pickups that suit the originals. The BB 1, 2, and 3 are thought to be the closest to the originals. The 57 Classics are similar, but evenly wound on both coils, so it has a smoother tone overall.

I read some where (I believe it was on TGP)that the Burstbucker are now wound with Poly wire? Is that true or are they still being done with Panel Enamel?

The BB Pro's are a brighter PAF replica due to the Alnico V magnets used in them vs. the Alnico IIs.

 

Do you mean the BB Pros are a replica of a brighter PAF as opposed to brighter than a PAF replica?

Thanks
