This listing is for 2 pickups - matched and calibrated set - bridge (7 kOhm) and neck (6.34kOhm) - Firebird Mini Humbucker - hand made by Q pickups .

Real vintage Gibson Firebird pickup had a special construction - a set of thin steel plates

These hard-to-find plates contribute to the distinctive biting tone of a vintage Firebird guitar.

The plates are hidden inside the pickup - and NONE of the new production pickups has these.

Small plate measures 1" x 7/32" (25.4mm x 5.56mm) and it is positioned on the TREBLE side of the pickup, just under the chrome plated nickel silver cover - under the "B" and "G" string - and on top of the bobbins.

Larger steel plate is under the bobbins inside the pickup, it measures 1-15/16" x 7/8" (49.21mm x 22.23mm)
Thickness: 0.015"
