True vintage details make our Firebird Mini Humbucker kit special.
The mini humbucker first appeared on Gibson® guitars on early '60s Firebird models. The Firebird version looks like a standard mini humbucker but without the row of adjustable polepieces. They're actually a completely different design, and the tone they provide gives a brighter sound due to its dual bar magnets, and higher output.
"I had a client bring in a recent Firebird reissue for a pickup replacement. Modern stock pickups are not the same as the highly regarded versions found in the originals. I was able to wind a great sounding, more accurate to vintage version using these kits."
—Erick Coleman, guitar repairman and StewMac tech advisor
