Golden Age Humbuckers

Vintage vibe, great price. Wake up your guitar! For authentic classic tone, Golden Age humbuckers feature Alnico 5 magnets and AWG42 coil wire just like the originals.

Inspired by legendary pickups of the '50s.
Alnico 5 magnets give that warm classic tone. AWG42 coils are wound on black or zebra bobbins, fabric-taped, mounted on a brass baseplate, and wax-potted for microphonic suppression. The output wire is 4-conductor plus ground, allowing versatile custom coil-tapping, series/parallel, and phase switching options to expand your sound.

Wiring diagrams and vintage dimensions make installation in most humbucker-equipped guitars easy.

Bridge models:9.0K ohms, 2.015" polepiece spread
Neck models:8.0K ohms, 1.97" polepiece spread

Mounting screws, springs and wiring diagrams are included.

Dimensions
Length2.75"(69.85mm)
Width1.5"(38.10mm)
Height.840"(21.34mm)including mounting tabs

Looking for hotter output with more powerful midrange? Check out Golden Age Overwound Humbuckers.

TIP: Handy Humbucker Helpers make installation a whole lot easier.

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.

Superb Pickups

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Half the price of the "brand" name pickups. I installed them on a clone Les Paul and the guitar came alive. The sound has great presence and body. I bought another set for another guitar I have. Highly recommended.

Golden Age Parsons Street Pickups

I put a pair on my PRS Tremonti SE and it has become my favorite guitar. Used the StewMac Les Paul control assembly and added a treble bleed. Crisp and clear on my Fender amp.

After a head to head comparison....

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I installed a set of SD Pearly Gates in one LP and a set of SD Seth Lover PAF's in another for a customer. This gave me an excellent opportunity to do a head to head comparison with the Golden Age pups in one of my LPs and the Parson Street in the other. I was expecting the SD's to blow them away. I found that, for twice the price, the SD's just aren't worth it for me. Id rather have the SD's, but for half the price, these are awesome pickups. Just one man's opinion. (I have GA pups in 2 lps, a strat, a tele and a pbass and love them all)
