ID:Chris Buck 57s
Single Pickup or Set of 3 Pickups
A subtle twist on our best selling ID:Chris Buck signature Strat set, the ID:CB ’57s feature hand bevelled Alnico III magnets and are specially voiced to give that classic, sought after ‘Californian’ maple fingerboard Strat tone. As with our original ID:Chris Buck set, the ID:CB ’57s feature an unpotted inner core of winds delivering a huge increase in playing dynamics, presence and character of tone over other makers’ pickups. This set also features our own design ‘Tele-fit’ baseplate in the bridge position to offer extra bass and beef from the bridge pickup position. Perfect for smokey, bar-room blues and a myriad of other styles both vintage and modern, check out Chris’ wonderful playing of this set in our workshop G&L Legacy by clicking on the ‘Watch’ Tab above.
