Humbuckers

Shipping Update - Nickel and gold covered humbuckers are on backorder, so they are hard to find with dealers including Amazon at the moment. We should be caught up by August 20th and dealers will have them back in stock at the end of the month.

From our vintage Alnico IV Classic PAF-style pickup set, to the in-your-face power of the Generator bridge pickup, we have the perfect humbucker for your instrument. All our humbuckers are made with premium quality components and guaranteed for five years.

  • All parts are custom-made for the best tone possible - no standard parts are being used.
  • All models available in four colors - black, zebra, nickel and gold.
  • Calibrated winding for even volume balance across all standard positions.
  • High-gloss deluxe bobbins - no other humbucker on the market has the same lustre and shine.
  • Four-conductor wiring is standard on all models.
  • Screws and springs included in the box.
  • All coils scatterwound on our 999-step CNC winding machines.
  • All coils wax-potted to avoid feedback at high-gain settings.
  • Note: All our humbucker pickups are sold individually, so you can build your own set.

Alnico II Classics - AC2

The Alnico II Classic is a superb set for guitars that need more warmth, fullness and sustain. The earliest Gibson Patent-Applied-For (or "PAF") pickups used a range of magnets, but PAFs made with Alnico II have always held a special place in many a guitarist's heart. If you have ever heard someone describe a PAF as "flute-like" or "more like a single coil than a humbucker" - that's the Alnico II working its magic.

Octane - TRH3

The all-new Octane humbucker from Tonerider delivers more aggressive, tighter lead lines and focused power chords.
