Custom buckers are custom wound burstbuckers. They normally feature in signature models and are not available after market. Could your R8 be a signature model? I know Gibson often build a guitar with random off spec pickups because that's all they have but I think sticking custom buckers in an R8 seems unlikely.

The guitar was purchased at Guitar center (ya I know, I'm not a fan, but I saw it and had to have it)


Originally it had push/pull gadgetry on all 3knobs and a kill switch on one.

Ed beaver in Nashville changed those pots out. Other than that its all original still, but I'm not opposed to changing it if the updates improve it.



Neck PU, have never heard or seen these before, but I'm not expert.


Bridge PU



Thinking of changing this for one where the screws won't pop out. Any recommendations?




A few more (2010 VOS R8 plaintop Lemonburst)
