Product Description


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

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

Ground Wire: Thicker Black wire

South start: Yellow wire (Also known as Inside Screw wire)

South finish: Red wire (Outside screw wire)

North finish: White wire (outside slug wire)

North start: Thinner Black 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; 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.

Fantastic pickup - articulate clean, and maintains clarity when the gain is turned up. Very impressed especially for the price of admission!
