Color-matching Cream Parts and Bindings
There have always been slight variations in the color of the cream plastic parts used on Gibson and other guitars. It's not uncommon to see brand new and vintage guitars with bindings, pickup rings, toggle switch rings and pickguards that don't perfectly match in color. We do our best to match all our cream products, but there's no absolute control from batch to batch, or from supplier to supplier.

This is a great pickup.

I have a PRS Custom 24 that I've been testing all kinds of pickups on. I've tried Seymour Duncan- JB, Screamin Demon, Pearly Gates. Dimarzio- Mo Joe, Fred, Paf Pro. PRS- HFS, Dragon II, McCarty. Gibson- Burstbucker Pro, 490b, 498t. You can see from the list that I'm looking for a hotter sounding PAF (alnico V pickup) but not a super distortion ceramic pickup. This is really nice sounding pickup with great harmonics, nice mids and highs, and a nice tight bottom end. I would say it's a cross between a Seymour Duncan JB and a Gibson Burstbucker Pro. The JB has to much mids and can get muddy the Burstbucker can sound a little thin. This is a great combo of both the clearity of a Burstbucker and the kick of a JB. Really good job people and for the price well what can you say, Amazing. Peace, Ivan

3 sets, not out!

Just ordered my fourth set of Golden Age overwound humbuckers, the previous 3 being installed in a Flying V, my chrome top Les Paul and an Epiphone Firebird studio. The power, tone,sustain and harmonics from these pickups is amazing and so musical! 3 guitars, all sound and feel different but all a joy to play, it just doesn't get any better, great stuff Guys!

Great Pick up

I had these put into a Epiphone Les Paul 100. It made a cheap Les Paul sound like a real Les Paul.

Best bridge pickup I have ever used.

Great tone, even harmonics, and just the right amount of growl. I put this pickup (Zebra version) in along with a black regular Golden Age and almost 2 years later I am still amazed. This pickup finally achieved the sound I had heard in my head for this Les Paul. The only change I would make to it would be to have the vintage braided ground/single conductor wire.
