The perfect bridge-position companion to the '57 Classic, the '57 Classic Plus mimics those late-1950s humbuckers that received a few extra turns of wire. This treatment gave the pickup slighter higher output without sacrificing its rich, vintage tone.

It helps overdrive tube preamps to a smooth level of saturation without becoming overpowering. Made with the same features as the '57 Classic, the '57 Classic Plus is available with genuine gold-plated covers or nickel-plated covers.

Hot, but not overly hot. Smooth, well balanced tone, no mid range honk. Good harmonics. Can do clean blues to metal. This pickup into a tube screamer and a Marshall sings!
