The Blues Heritage humbucker by Planet Tone is a blues and rock players dream! The pickups are fueled by a passion for the blues and the tone that our heroes made famous! Giving tribute to greats like Albert King and Gary Moore, the Blues Heritage is a super warm, punchy, clear and dynamic pickup that is perfect for those creamy blues solos!
Planet Tone artist Julian Sas, who is absolutely one of the hottest blues players today, has been using them in newest custom Les Paul build by Patrick Koopman. The guitar is a lovely cherry burst with a gorgeous flame top. The guitar brings out the thick, driving blues tone captured by the Blues Heritage humbuckers.
Our original Blues Heritage recipe was slightly modified when Julian reached out to us asking for a set that an authentic tribute and offering based on Gary Moore’s custom specs given to Gibson and personal conversations between Julian and Gary Moore’s brother. After much research and discussion with Julian, the current Blues Heritage humbucker, we feel, is the perfect wind recipe to give the guitarist the tonal dynamics of Gary’s own Les Paul pickups.
The pickups use Alnico V magnets and are made using the highest quality components available today including the original recipes maple spacers! All Planet Tone pickups are handcrafted to order in our shop located in Commerce City, Colorado, USA.
