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.

YELLOW = start of stud/north coil
RED= finish of stud/north coil
WHITE= finish of adjustable/south coil
BLACK = start of adjustable/south coil

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.

Artist bullbuckers

By: Terry Lee Barker 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.

Bullbucker Pickups – Gibson-a-fy your tone; no Bul

By: Mike Sadler on 2 February 2018
I've been using these close on a year now and was probably partly responsible for exhausting the stock once I tried my first set :-) I bought them first to replace the 'OK' stock pickups in a Artist Super-Strat style guitar with mahogany body and neck... think PRS. Adding the Bullbuckers reminded me immediately of an SG with 'Classic' (60's) humbuckers but with a little more 'poke' in the bridge, like a stock but conicidentally overwound and well voiced one. Because they are (I think) Fender spaced poles, I also installed one on a Custom Squier Tele (bridge) and a pair on another Artist Super-Strat style guitar. Very happy all round. Some time later, I had a chance to play a mate's Epiphone LP Custom with some real Seymour Duncan Pickups on board... a JB Bridge and a Jazz Neck (classic Epi Upgrade). The similarities are uncanny! More recently, my wife and I have each bought new Gibsons; she a HP SG, me an ES LP Special (semi-hollowbody). The HP SG has 'modern' (490) pickups which a just a bit 'naughtier' than the Bullbuckers while maintaing clarity but the Bullbucker tone is in the ballpark. The ES LP (a cross between a 335 and a LP) uses a '57 Classic neck and an Super '57 (overwound) bridge and the Bullbuckers are MUCH naughtier; so they're definitely on the hotter side. So, if you want a 'rockier/naughtier' than vintage LP or SG sound for your Epiphone or other Gibson 'tribute' than these will definitely suit. They also sound great in Fender style guitars and would be a great swapout for standard Squire humbuckers IF you want a Gibson style sound. Ditto any PRS style guitar. They would also be great for "rocking up' a Dot 335/Ibanez Artcore or similar and have to be an absolute no brainer if you own and love an Artist Cherry 7 Anniversry – I bet they also sound great split too! In summary they're great if you want that classic-to-slightly-hot-rodded Gibson or McCarty PRS sound; at his price they're a total no-brainer. PS: My 12 month evaluation, over 3 different guitars I use live/jamming (leaving the 'real' Gibsons, etc at home) is based on use with some modelling software but mostly with a Mesa Boogie Roadster (100W Dual Rectifier 2 x 12), Marshall JVM410C (100W 2 x 12) and more recently a Positive Grid Bias (Rack) Head (600W with Marshall 1936 2 x 12). So, it's not like I can't 'hear' what they really sound like... and they do sound like ROCK!

Excellent balance, awesome tones, for killer price

By: Matthew on 29 June 2017
I received my set of BullBuckers two weeks ago. Shipping was fast, installation was easy, and the experience has been great. I installed these in my new Artist Gnosis 6 guitar, which I have had for about a month now. I had a couple of guitars to compare against this way, I have a Les Paul Special and an ESP Horizon series with EMG 81/85 pickups. Obviously, the sound is quite different to the EMG pickups since the BullBuckers are passive, but I was pleasantly surprised at how well they stood up to the EMG offering and in some cases giving me a more preferred tone. Between the LP with Gibson pickups and the Gnosis with BullBuckers, in terms of tone there was not a whole lot of difference. The sound was a little bit sharper on the LP, but I’m going to put that down to the fact it’s a Les Paul and it probably has a slightly better tone potentiometer and capacitor. Both guitars have the same strings, and were played in the same tunings. The only major difference was the scale length. LP being 24.75’ and the Gnosis 6 being 25.5’. Neck Pickup: I don’t really play with the neck, even when playing rhythm. It produced a nice warm thick sound, sounded fantastic for Jazz and Rockabilly type playing. Bridge Pickup: I play on the Bridge 99% of the time, because I prefer the crunchy aggressive tones you get compared to a neck pickup with is generally warmer. The neck pickup was amazing and I managed to pull some killer tones out of it. Clean Highs: Very nice, crisp, rings out well. Clean Mids: The mids in these pickups seem quite well balanced, which was nice. Offered great chord voicing, without being overpowering. Clean Lows: Tight and not too overwhelming, giving good room within the sonic range for chord voicing, even in the lower tunings I frequently play in. Distorted Highs: Things like pinch harmonics, natural harmonic pick slides, and lead riffs are beautiful and make some awesome sounds. Distorted Mids: Present, but not overwhelming. Which lent very well to my tone and style of playing. Distorted Lows: Because the pickups are quite tight, with some well-set distortion and the dirty channel on my amp, the sound I was able to produce was amazing. Especially when keeping in mind the price of these pickups. Overall, these pickups really surprised me. A set of the Bull Buckers costing less than a single, big brand name pickup, and these things put out some killer sounds. They were able to produce some pleasing clean tones, and some awesome rock and metal tones. I would definitely recommend these to replace OEM pickups or even upgrade on some guitars. They were an excellent upgrade for my Artist Gnosis 6.

Great all round humbuckers

By: Michael on 29 July 2016
I bought a pair of Artist Bullbuckers a couple of weeks ago. I installed them into a Epiphone Les Paul and they are fantastic I can get clean flute like tones out of them through to moderate overdrive and full on distortion. These are great all round pickups, thanks again Heath and Ian and great service as usual. Cheers Michael
