Artist BullBucker Humbucker Pickup Neck - Black

Classic moderate output humbucker based on the popular Jazz model. Especially popular in 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 with mahogany bodies and rosewood fingerboards. Also works great with hollow and semi-hollow body guitars.

All Artist Bullbucker humbuckers with four-conductor hookup wires incorporate a standard wire color code. They are Split Coil Humbuckers which allows the humbucker to effectively become a single coil and wax potted pickups.

North start :Black wire
North finish:White wire
South start:Yellow wire
South finish:Red wire

For standard series humbucking operation on a 4-Conductor wired humbucker the White & Red wires are soldered together and taped; Black is ground and Yellow is Hot Output.

Met and exceeded my expectations

By: Neil Charkow 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: Debbie 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: Stuart McKleaine 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: Alex 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: Stephen Watson 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!
