Gibson Gear Burstbucker Pro Nickel (Neck) OverviewThe BurstBucker ProGäó enhances the vintage "edge" of Gibson's popular BurstBuckerGäó pickups with the added feature of an Alnico 5 magnet.
In 2000, Gibson's new BurstBuckersGäó captured the subtle variations in true humbucker tone with historically accurate "unmatched" bobbin windings and an Alnico II magnet. Two years later, in keeping with Gibson's long history of experimentation and innovation in pickup design, Gibson developed an Alnico 5 BurstBuckerGäó specifically for new Les Paul Standards. The outstanding performance of this new pickup (originally called the BurstBucker V) led to an overwhelming demand for an after-market version. With the BurstBucker ProGäó, all "Pure Tone Lovers" can now have stunning humbucking tone.
Output of these pickups is similar to the standard BurstBuckerT #1 and #2 model. And BurstBucker ProGäó pickups are wax potted so that they can withstand loud volume pressures without annoying feedback. This model is available with German Nickel Silver covers.
