Since 1935

When it comes to musical instrument design, Gibson’s reputation for innovation is legendary. Nowhere is this more apparent than in electrification. One of the true pioneers of the electric guitar and guitar pickup design, Gibson’s many years of research and manufacturing have helped shape the sounds of generations of musicians and music lovers across genres for almost 90 years.

While it hasn’t previously been well-known to the public, since 1935, Gibson has been the source of the world’s finest pickups. From the player-favorite P-90 to the humbucker™ perfected in 1955 by Gibson engineer Seth Lover, the Gibson Pickup Shop offers a variety of pickup styles and configurations for all types of players.

About Our Pickups

All Gibson pickups incorporate superior construction and are made using the highest quality materials. Our hand-assembled pickups feature specially made magnets, maple wood spacers, high-quality cover materials, and four-conductor or vintage two-conductor wiring. Each pickup magnet is magnetized at the Gibson Pickup Shop to ensure peak performance. The use of maple spacers (not plastic) helps to reduce unwanted vibrations.

The Gibson Pickup Shop uses Swiss-made Meteor ME-301 coil winding machines. These are historical winding machines; Gibson has been using this style of winding machine since the 50s. They are highly accurate, precision winders that can handle winding a larger quantity of coils simultaneously.
