Pickup Set for Gibson Historic or USA Models • A3 Deluxe Humbuckers
We call them the Amazing A3 Deluxe, and once you try them you'll know why!
Scatterwound by hand and featuring ultra-responsive Alnico III magnets, butyrate bobbins, plain enamel wire, maple spacers, pure nickel-silver long-leg baseplates and vintage braided wire, these pickups take vintage tone to a new level! Played every night on stages all over the world by great guitarists; here's what they're saying:
"These pups just sound better every gig I play! Keep up the amazing work!" —Dan Parsons • Chase the Ace
"The A3 Deluxe sound F#$&ing KILLER. Very articulate without being harsh. No mush. Just enough power (mid 8's) Neck pickup has the most definition I've ever heard out of the LP that they went in (clean or dirty). Absolutely Spank everything else I had tried!!" —Mark Chatfield • The Godz, Rosie, The Silver Bullet Band
"I recently picked up from my buddy Mark, at Mark's Guitar Loft, this killer Dave Johnson makeover. Mark put a pair of CreamTone A3 Deluxe pickups in it. Man... they sound GREAT! This guitar has a BIG rock tone. I took it out to our gig last weekend, and my drummer (who always knows good tone when he hears it) was commenting on how good it sounded." —Charlie Daughtry • The Relics
"I did some more playing today and yahoo! I understand these pups. OUTSTANDING! There are so many tones to be had just from the volume and tone knobs. It's like having a pedal board at your finger tips. It's a secret pickup, man. It connects me to the Galaxy!" —Webbers • Rocker at Large
DCR of the A3 Deluxe is 8.8 at the bridge and 7.5 at the neck. Whether you're playing the blues, or cranking up to rock, these pickups never disappoint—just like the originals from the 50s.
So you're probably wanting to hear a sound clip. Dan Parsons, lead guitarist for Chase the Ace, recently sent us these videos featuring the A3 Deluxe. He's plugged into an EVH amp and he's not using any pedals. See more from Dan and the guys at chasetheaceband.com.
