This pickup is designed to provide more mid-range drive from blues, rock and classic styles of play while offering a well-balanced blend of highs and punchy lows with a mid range that drives.

Think: Gary Moore, Albert King etc.

The Alnico V magnets provide warm presence with a balance to sustain for great attack and articulation. The highs are clear and well defined. The low end is tight, punchy and powerful for a nice bottom end for chord structure and lead work. The mid range is brought out for drive, attack and a slight bit more power.

The perfect pickup for a touch more power than a traditional PAF-type pickup.

  • All mounting hardware included

    Easily one of my favorite bridge pickups and I have tried at least 20 plus different ones. This just does exactly what you would think he would do from its name.

    Like burstbuckers but better. How are they better?… Clarity, clarity and clarity with Slightly more drive without being compressed. The neck pickup does that slightly chewy, bouncy thing we all love from a neck PAF and the bridge has that punchy muscular mid range we all love from a proper LP bridge pup. These pups rival anything I’ve ever played from $100-300, from Duncans to boutique. Put the in a LP where they were intended or in a Strat. You won’t be disappointed.

    Another amazing pickup from my guy at Planet Tone!

    Love the tone of these pickups in my les paul.
    Has great clarity and cleans up nicely with the volume knob.

    My Epi Les Paul is now complete. I tried the Dimarzio and Seymour D, for neck position but something was always missing. I now have a perfect balance with the JB bridge and Blues H. in neck. The other brands are good, but this pickup has magic, power with sensitivity and sounds dynamic. First pickup from this brand, it’s a killer sound.

    This is hands down my favorite pickup! So much tone, so much mojo. I can’t be happier.

    I picked up a set of these after seeing Lucas Fowler review them on YouTube and I have to say that I am nothing less than impressed by these humbuckers. They have a great tonal range from clean to dirty and everything in between, but they sound best with just a little hair on ’em.

    These pickups are awesome. This is my 2nd set of Planer Tone pickups and the clarity is amazing. The bridge pickup has got a nice punch. I cant imagine me buying anything other than planet tone and the price is amazing. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on good pups but PT is by far the best.

    Man, this sounds just like you think it would. Fully recommend.
