Say goodbye to soldering with the Gibson Quick Connect '57 Classic Plus humbucker pickup. 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 tone.
Many of the Gibson USA Les Paul or SG models are already wired with the QC Control Panel Assembly and ready to plug in the Quick Connect pickups.
For the first few years of their production, Gibson's famous "Patent Applied For" humbuckers were wound using imprecise machines, resulting in pickups with slightly different output and tone. They were -- and remain today -- very desirable to players who want to mix and match and explore a complete spectrum of tonal possibilities. The '57 Classic vintage style humbucker is the result of Gibson's drive to capture and recreate this renowned characteristic. Introduced in 1992, the '57 Classic provides warm, full tone with a balanced response, packing that classic Gibson PAF humbucker crunch. They are made to the exact same specs as the original PAFs, including Alnico II magnets, nickel-plated pole pieces, nickel slugs, maple spacers, and vintage-style, two-conductor braided wiring. The pickups are also wax potted to remove all internal air space and any chance of microphonic feedback.
Control Panel Board Conversion Kits and separate clips are available for quick install with older Les Paul and SG guitars.
