The PBF-49 and PBF-51 Vintage set feature sweet high end and classic warm tones, with focused and defined lows. The string-to-string output is balanced by internal compensation and field shaping. The blade design ensures your tone won’t fade from even the most aggressive bends.
PBF Humbuckers are fully sealed and shielded making them sweat-proof, quiet if you touch them, and immune invisible noise from stage lights and studio power supplies. The shielded 4-conductor cable is ready for coil splitting and series or parallel humbucker wiring.
PBF Humbuckers come in black, nickel, or gold in balanced versions for neck (rhythm) and bridge (treble). Black mounting screws are included (#4-40 x 1”) for rectangular versions (Bartolini #1 Shell shape).
PBF Humbuckers are also now available in b-one traditional rounded-corner shape for pickguard and body-mount installations with your standard #3-48 screws. Mounting hardware is not included – be sure to order what you need for your particular guitar.
