Patent-Applied-For sound and wax potted to fight pickup squeal.
The Gibson '57 Classic Humbucking pickup for the neck position is a reproduction of the original Gibson Humbucker from the late 1950's. In those days, Gibson did not build separate pickups in those days for Neck and Bridge, they used the same pickup for both.
To best replicate the "Gibson PAF", guitarists should put a '57 Classic in the Neck and Bridge positions. It is actually for both.
For more modern sounds, the '57 Classic in the neck can be paired with the '57 Classic Plus in the bridge. The guitar pickup features Gibson's special Alnico II magnet, wax potted to fight high-volume feedback squeal; vintage enamel-coated wire; nickel-plated pole pieces; nickel slugs; maple spacers; and vintage-style, 2-conductor, braided wiring.
