Guerrilla Warfare Pickups Announces the Revolution Humbucker

This set features an Alnico II magnet in the neck pickup and Alnico III in the bridge pickup.

Akron, OH (May 26, 2015) -- The Revolution is Guerrilla Warfare’s Signature Humbucking Pickup. This beautifully crafted dual Humbucking Pickup set accurately replicates the P.A.F. pickups from the Gibson guitars of yesteryear. What makes the Revolution Pickups sound so remarkable? They are wound by machine just like the humbucking pickups created by Gibson back in the 50s and 60s. This pickup set features an Alnico II magnet in the neck pickup and Alnico III in the bridge pickup. We use period correct butyrate bobbins, maple spacer, and plain enamel wire; all firmly attached with brass screws to a 50's spec nickel-silver, long leg frame. Their bright and warm bass response combined with a slightly pronounced mid-range makes for a very dynamic and sweet high end. The upper frequency range has exceptional bloom and a lot of creamy tone due to the unpotted coils. We also offer an antiqued version of these pickups. If you’re a tone purist, this is the pickup for you!

Features:

  • Accurate replica of the 50s and 60s the P.A.F. pickups
  • Alnico 2 magnet in the neck pickup and Alnico 3 in the bridge
  • Period-correct butyrate bobbins
  • Optional Lightly antiqued set
  • Bridge – 8.0k
  • Neck– 7.0k

Guerrilla Warfare Pickups Revolution humbuckers cost $135.00 each or can be purchased as a calibrated set for $270.00 directly from the Guerrilla Warfare Pickups.

“Like everything in life, there’s always more to be discovered,”George Benson writes in the liner notes to his new archival release, Dreams Do Come True: When George Benson Meets Robert Farnon. He’s talking about meeting Farnon—the arranger, conductor, and composer with credits alongside Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and Vera Lynn, among many others, plus a host of soundtracks—after Quincy Jones told the guitarist he was “the greatest arranger in all the world.”
