59-Bucker CreamGenThese pickups are carefully handmade in my manufacture based in the south of Germany. The 59-Bucker series claims to carry on the design- and sound-standards of those legendary humbucker pickups from the mid 50´s.
The Classic model is a uncompromising PAF-replica with Alnico-2 powering, uneven scatter winding, not wax potted to get a maximized musicality.
59-Bucker pickups are closely oriented to the design and construction of the early PAF humbucker. They are made from selected parts and “vintage correct” materials imported from selected US suppliers.
The 59-Bucker pickup-family will certainly offer a suitable model for every humbucker-fan. High-Gain workers might have also a look at the Zone-series humbucker. Optionally the pickups can be supplied with a high-quality covers made of thin nickel-silver (chrome finish) from German supplier Schaller.

The fact of using Alnico-2 magnets in combination with higher winding counts creates a pickup that has lots of warmth, is potentially available for creamy Lead-Sounds and supplies a more mild character. Also clarity and good musicality is part of the character-picture. My personal recommendation for fillmore-solos, mild Blues and Jazz.
