Gibson 57 Classic Plus GC

131

Guitar pickup

The classic humbucker PAF Gibson with some more output. Provides a well-balanced sound with assertive overtones and an outstanding response. The P-57 Classic Plus on the bridge along with the normal Classic 57 on the neck is an ideal combination for all popular Les Pauls, especially if one wants to achieve the classic sound with a little more bite on the bridge.

  • Substantially more turns than the classic 57 pickup
  • Characteristics: Higher output capacity
  • Amp can easily overload
  • Strong rhythm sound and easily singing lead sounds
  • Colour: Gold

Gibson 57 Classic-plus installed at the bridge position

The reviews I read before trying the '57 Classic-plus all indicated that this pickup sounded SMOOTH (and even quite 'fat'). I can't say I agree. It sounds great for thrashing, but for legato solo'ing it's way too zingy/edgy for my tastes, and not at all 'fat'. Rolling off the treble control helps a bit, but if I could roll back the clock, I wouldn't have chosen this pickup as it's a fair bit more expensive than an equivalent Seymour Duncan. Also, for a pickup that's billed as medium-high output it's got very little extra oomph than the regular '57-classic, if any at all. For the money, I'm disappointed.

Exceeded the expectations

What is there to say? Like my review on the normal '57 Classic, it's a proper Gibson Humbucker with the braided wire to it's easy to solder and install. Sounds exactly as hoped. Even after 10 years of use, they sound and respond like new.

Sounds perfect in an archtop. Very versatile. Perfect match for classic 57
