About this Artist BullBucker Humbucker Pickup Set - Black

Buy as a set and Save! This includes both Neck and Bridge Pickups.


Artist BullBucker Humbucker Pickup Neck - Black

Classic moderate output humbucker based on the popular Jazz model. Especially popular in the neck position. Great for jazz, and also country, blues, funk, classic rock and heavy rock. Provides an articulate and clear tone. Great for fast runs. The brighter tone has slightly less output and is a good match with most bridge pickups. When distorted, the tone is full and bright. Smooth sustain.

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 four-conductor hookup wires and use the same standard wire colour code. 

Top Coil Polarity: South

Bottom Coil Polarity: North

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

South finish: Red wire (Outside screw wire)

North finish: White wire (outside slug wire)

North start: Black wire, taped with bare ground wire. (Also known as Inside Slug wire) 

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

Because this setup is the same on the Neck pickup, coil splitting both and using the middle position will not hum cancel, because they will both be using the south coil and will have the same polarity.

Artist BullBucker Humbucker Pickup Bridge - Black

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.

Great Pickups for the price

By: on 1 June 2021
I put a set of these in an Ibanez AS53 semi hollow body . I set up the coil split and my own treble bleed circuit. I found a huge improvement over the stock Ibanez pickups . Nice and clear from clean to a cranked Marshall JVM410H on full gain . Very similar to the SD JB-4 and Sh-2 set I have in one of my Les Paul's . Very versatile, well worth a try .

Thanks so much for the review and for all the support. Cheers.

Amazing for the price

Received bridge pickup to replace missing part in a relic Kramer80s Tele. Excellent sound in both split and single coil pickup. Not sure why you would spend hundreds on other brands after you have heard these. Unless you need the original pickup for resale. Listen to the add, that's what they will sound like in your guitar.

Holly Batman bullbucker!

Wow. I’ve slipped these into my EPI Les Paul, split front and rear on separate pull pots so I have 8 different options to find the tone I want. Let’s start with full humbucker. These things rip the skin off the Epiphone set that were in there. They are really clean for humbuckers, and damn dirty when you want to rip out some crunch. Through the pedal they scream up and down the neck. Switch it to front and rear single coil, the tones are similar to that of my Tele. Not exactly, still different enough to have set it this way but very clean, much better than I expected. Playing with the pull pots and switching through the pick ups you find all sorts of goodies that are just fun to play with. Tone up and tone down they just do it all. Worth so much more than the almost nothing I payed for them. They rip, I love them and I’ve grown so much respect for this company. Amazing products guys, you’re awesome!!!

Met and exceeded my expectations

By: on 4 August 2020
For the price, I didn't have 'name-brand' expectations. However, I don't think you can apply the adage, "you get what you pay for" because I am very happy with my new pickups. I installed them with 2 x push/pull dpdt pots and now have them on series/parallel switching. The 4 conductors allow you do virtually anything you want (coil split/tap, phase, etc.). Worth the purchase even if you want to experiment but great sound for a swap out of sub-standard stock pups.

The Do-Everything pickup, if wired right

By: on 17 April 2020
These are bright pickups. In Artists own TC59 tele, they tame some of that top end with 250K pots for volume and tone and THOSE are the covered version of these pickups. And they're still bright! To my ear, these pickups sound remarkably like SD Screamin' Demon pickups, which have the hex head bolts instead of screws. Only, they're like 5 times the price of these. These are the most versatile pickups I've ever installed. Incredibly responsive to dynamics in your playing style. They coil tap so well that I have one set exclusively as a single coil tapped installation. And they also sound beautiful wired in parallel. The only thing you'll have to do is be patient dialling in the right heights and get used to dropping them down with the tone knob(s). Other than that, they're perfect... hang on, the leads are a little short. But not a deal breaker.

Great value, and sound!

By: on 20 March 2020
I bought these for a rough as guts guitar I made around 30 years ago, it had fallen into disrepair and had just sat around the shed for years. I needed a new neck pickup and thought that I would give a pair of these a try after reading positive reviews, and considering the not substantial price. I must say that I am very happy. I really like the neck pickup especially. They both have plenty of power flat out, but plenty of nuances dialled back. I have set them up as split coil, and now my homemade Tele style has that Tele twang when I want it. If you're wondering why it didn't have single coils to start with, it was made out of bits lying around from guitars deceased, humbuckers being the pickups lying around. The actual body was made from what my father cut out of the top of a vanity unit to fit a sink, and that's where it started. Rough as, but fun, and now even more so. Thanks Artist.

Artist Bullbucker, good bang for your BUCK and no

By: on 15 February 2020
I bought a set for my chibson LP expecting nothing really, I had them installed by a professional luthier who happens to wind his own pickups as well. He was intrigued as he never heard of these pickups before and when I told him how much they were he went like "ok .." He looked very surprised when he plugged the guitar in and after a while he told me "you got yourself a pair of good sounding pickups". I play early Sabbath, COC, Soundgarden etc and the bridge pickup does a pretty decent job, nice warm and round sound courtesy of the Alnico V magnet. The biggest surprise was the neck pickup, played clean with a touch of delay or reverb it sounds great, good for jazz and blues but also alt/rock dreamy/trippy stuff. In a nutshell these pickups got me playing my 6 strings again, wish they made a set for my 8 strings too.

Banging

By: on 30 October 2019
Good responsive humbucker, only criticism is wiring color, it doesn't match any other PU manufacturers, and while description of wire functions gives you the clues to match them to standard colour schemes it took a bit of research. This is a moot point if your just wiring them up as a standard replacement, but if you are trying to take advantage of the split coil, phasing, etc or for the Jimmy Page Les Paul wiring, then some searching will be required, guitarwiring.com is a good resource. But all in all best humbckers at this price!

Artist bullbuckers

By: on 3 September 2019
Picked a set of these up from Artist warehouse yesterday, put them into my Epiphone F hole today, wow brought the old beauty to life,very articulate nicely voiced pickups, nice chime on the tops and a nice smooth midrange and balanced bottom end sound great clean but they really come into their own into to a driven amp nice creamy sound on the neck and the bridge is outstanding straight up rock and roll. Sound a lot like the pickups in an old 72 SG custom I used to own and certainly hold their own up against any other pickups out there, bang for your buck they are hard to go past I will certainly use them again very impressive pickups.
