About This Listing

This is a set of Gibson PAF style humbucker pickups. This set came out of a Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro. The bridge pickup is a '57 A3T and the neck pickup is a '57 A3R. They are identical to the standard Classic 57 pups, except that they use an AlNiCo III magnet instead of the AlNiCo II magnet used in the Classic. The bridge pup output measures at 8.5k and the neck at 8.0k. They both have 10-12" of 4-conductor lead on them. They are uncovered and have the Zebra coil color with the cream color on the screw side. Long leg, standard 50mm bridge spacing.

Taken from an article about the guitar:

"These were specially picked out for the Traditional Pro III, the '57 A3R and '57 A3T pickups combine the specs of the '57 Classic pickup with vintage-output alnico III magnets resulting in the power and warmth of vintage pickups with added articulation and sparkle. These pickups feature nickel-plated pole pieces, nickel slugs, maple spacers, and 4-conductor braided wiring."

They are in excellent condition and sound great. The only reason I'm selling them is that I replaced them with some slightly hotter pups.
