Product Description


About this Artist BullBucker Electric Guitar Humbucker 5 Wire Pickup Bridge - Chrome Covered

Based on the popular JB model, this bridge pickup has a fairly high output and is very versatile. Great for everything from blues to heavy metal. Provides slammin' output with singing highs, aggressive harmonics, and can retain clear crisp cleans while being able to get real dirty. Pairs well with our BullBucker Neck Pickup.

Works especially well mahogany body guitars with rosewood fingerboards. They are wax potted and can be used as Split Coil Humbuckers which allows the humbucker to effectively become a single coil. All Artist Bullbucker humbuckers have five-conductor hookup wires and use the same standard wire colour code.

Top Coil Polarity: North

Bottom Coil Polarity: South

Ground Wire: Thicker Black wire

North start: Thinner Black wire (Also known as Inside Slug wire)

North finish: White wire (outside slug wire)

South finish: Red wire (Outside screw wire)

South start: Yellow wire (Also known as Inside Screw wire) This is your Hot wire.

To use this as a standard humbucker in series configuration, the White & Red wires are soldered together and taped; both Black wires are grounded and Yellow is Hot Output.

If you want to coil-split, then attach the Red and White wires to the coil switch. This means that when coil splitting, Black and White are not involved because they are both grounded, which deactivates the North coil.

To split to the North coil, the process is much the same, but you'll switch the position of the thin black and yellow wires, making the thin black wire the Hot start, and the yellow wire will be grounded. This means when the switch is activated, both Red and Yellow are grounded, deactivating the South coil.

Artist Guitars bullbucker pickups

By: on 25 November 2021
I purchasing an Artists TL59 Telecastor guitar two years ago with Bullbucker pickups in it and was blown away, not only by these great sounding pickups but by the overall quality of the guitar itself. The Bullbuckers give you a variety of tonal choices, no matter what style of music your in to. It can handle blues, rock, even jazz, pretty much anything and with the added benefit of coil tapping. It really is a very versatile pickup for the price and it definitely stands toe to toe with other higher priced brands. I have purchased another pair for a project upgrade as i truly believe in and highly recommend these great pickups. Don't believe me, just check out the many youtube revues, i'm sure they'll change your mind. Artist guitars. A great Australian company offering great products at great prices. If you're like me and don't have money to waste, give these pickups a try. You wont be sorry.

Perfect upgrade pickup

I purchased a set of Bullbuckers to upgrade my Ibanez PS60 (a Paul Stanley signature Iceman style guitar). A great set altogether, but the hotter Bullbucker bridge pickup really transformed the sound of the guitar. The stock pickup was kind of fuzzy and muddy, but the Bullbucker has more crunch and clarity along with better tone. Happy to recommend these as an upgrade or replacement.
