Swapping out between your favorite sounds has never been so easy. Only a screwdriver is required to remove the pickup mounting rings, then simply unplug the current pickup and plug in your new tone! It's just that easy!
Quick Connect technology is currently available on several of Gibson's most popular pickups. These 4 connector pickups are simply the best way to quickly experience and utilize a full range of iconic Gibson tones.
Select Gibson guitar models may already be QC ready with a simple modular board mounted control; jack and sockets for plug equipped pickups and selector switches. Swapping out between Gibson's '57 Classics, Burstbucker Pros or even the hot and nasty Dirty Fingers (TM) pickups takes just a couple of minutes, so you can adapt your main guitar to any gig or session.
About the 57 Classic Plus
Since their introduction in the late 1950s, Gibson’s famous "Patent Applied For" humbuckers have been considered the ultimate pickup because of their smooth, velvety tone. The ’57 Classic Plus uses slightly overwound balanced coils, exactly like the original PAFs of the late 1950s that accidentally received a few additional turns of wire.
They are the perfect bridge-position companion to the ’57 Classic, delivering just a little more of "the sweet stuff" without sacrificing any of the rich vintage tone. Each ’57 Classic Plus humbucker features the same enamel-like coated wiring, Alnico II magnet and maple spacers as in the original models, achieving a creamy, smooth output that sounds rich and full whether they’re being played clean or overdriven.
The ’57 Classic Plus pickups are so authentic that they even carry the original "Patent Applied For" decal on the baseplate. All of them come with braided, two-conductor wiring and are fully wax potted to eliminate any chance of microphonic feedback.
