Epiphone Les Paul Hot Pickups (Japan Era - Rare!) Set
Used - Excellent Condition
Based on Les Paul's specs, these pickups were taken out from a rare Japan-Era Epiphone Les Paul.
The pickups are Alnico humbuckers that delivers that warm, rich tone known the world over as the 'Les Paul Sound'. Players like Jimmy Page, Slash, Ace Frehley, Zakk Wylde, Alex Lifeson and countless others have loved the unique look and tone of the classic that Les Paul created years ago
When winding our humbuckers, Epiphone utilizes a double vacuum waxing process that ensures quiet operation free from microphonic hum.
The pickup is first placed in the specialized wax vacuuming system before the cover is placed on the unit to ensure that the wax fully penetrates to the very center of the pickup and solidifies all parts.
After the cover is placed on, it is again given a second vacuum wax bath until the unit is completely saturated with wax.
Epiphone uses only the highest quality parts for our pickups including ABS plastic bobbins, 1010 Cold Rolled Steel pole shoes and pole screws, Alnico magnets and the finest magnet wire available.
