No instrument’s name has ever so perfectly defined its tonal characteristic than the Thunderbird.
The original pickups were humbuckers under stunning chrome covers, but that sound and appearance faded away years ago. We are seriously obsessed with vintage pickups, so ours are built to original spec and cosmetics so you can restore an original or upgrade your reissue.
DC Resistance: 12.3k, 12.5k
Application: Gibson Thunderbird Bass
We are passionate about quality so we ask for your patience while we craft your pickup. Depending on the nature of your order, it may take up to six weeks for delivery.

I'm super happy with this pickup. I've upgraded a MIM Fender P, and I'm thrilled to death with the sound. Huge, booming, and present - exactly the rich, full sound I was looking for. Nicely compliments the variety of pedals I've tried - definitely an upgrade over the split coil in this respect.
