The limited run centers around the reborn T-Top humbuckers produced in the late '60s through the late '70s.

Chicago, IL (January 3, 2019) -- Chicago Music Exchange is proud to offer the first-ever replication of the T-Top humbucker, a legendary component of many Gibson electric guitars produced from 1968 through the late 1970s, billed on these exclusive SG Standards as the “T-Type.” CME’s Dan Bordonaro and Joel Bauman worked closely with Gibson USA’s master luthier Jim DeCola to conceive this custom run, available only at Chicago Music Exchange.

T-Type humbucking pickups are designed for consistency, clarity, and note definition. They offer brilliant chime without sacrificing low-end and clean up beautifully with a turn of the volume knob for incredible dynamic range and purity of tone thanks to replica specs like:

  • Alnico 5 magnets
  • Low-to-moderate 7.45k ohm DC resistance
  • Polyurethane insulated wire
  • Chrome covers

Exclusive Chicago Music Exchange SG Standards feature:

  • Hand-wired control harness
  • Multi-ply tortoiseshell pickguards
  • Small block fingerboard inlays
  • Nickel hardware
  • Smooth black control cavity
  • Five custom colorways: Gloss Yellow, Frost Blue, Walnut, Ebony, Heritage Cherry

To purchase, call 1-773-525-7773, visit, or stop by the Chicago Music Exchange showroom located at 3316 N. Lincoln Avenue, Chicago, IL 60657.
