About this Artist BullBucker Humbucker Pickup Set - Black

Buy as a set and Save! This includes both Neck and Bridge Pickups.


Artist BullBucker Humbucker Pickup Neck - Black

Classic moderate output humbucker based on the popular Jazz model. Especially popular in the neck position. Great for jazz, and also country, blues, funk, classic rock and heavy rock. Provides an articulate and clear tone. Great for fast runs. The brighter tone has slightly less output and is a good match with most bridge pickups. When distorted, the tone is full and bright. Smooth sustain.

Works especially well mahogany body guitars with rosewood fingerboards. They are wax potted and can be used as Split Coil Humbuckers which allows the humbucker to effectively become a single coil. All Artist Bullbucker humbuckers have four-conductor hookup wires and use the same standard wire colour code. 

Top Coil Polarity: South

Bottom Coil Polarity: North

South start: Yellow wire (Also known as Inside Screw wire) This is your Hot wire.

South finish: Red wire (Outside screw wire)

North finish: White wire (outside slug wire)

North start: Black wire, taped with bare ground wire. (Also known as Inside Slug wire) 

To use this as a standard humbucker in series configuration, the White & Red wires are soldered together and taped; Black is ground and Yellow is Hot Output.

If you want to coil-split, then attach the Red and White wires to the coil switch. This means that when coil splitting, Black and White are not involved because they are both grounded, which deactivates the North coil. 

Because this setup is the same on the Neck pickup, coil splitting both and using the middle position will not hum cancel, because they will both be using the south coil and will have the same polarity.

Artist BullBucker Humbucker Pickup Bridge - Black

Based on the popular JB model, this bridge pickup has a fairly high output and is very versatile. Great for everything from blues to heavy metal.

Artist bullbuckers

By: on 4 September 2019
Picked a set of these up from Artist warehouse yesterday, put them into my Epiphone F hole today, wow brought the old beauty to life,very articulate nicely voiced pickups, nice chime on the tops and a nice smooth midrange and balanced bottom end sound great clean but they really come into their own into to a driven amp nice creamy sound on the neck and the bridge is outstanding straight up rock and roll. Sound a lot like the pickups in an old 72 SG custom I used to own and certainly hold their own up against any other pickups out there, bang for your buck they are hard to go past I will certainly use them again very impressive pickups.

Bullbucker Pickups Gibson-a-fy your tone; no Bul

By: on 3 February 2018
"I've been using these close on a year now and was probably partly responsible for exhausting the stock once I tried my first set :-) I bought them first to replace the 'OK' stock pickups in a Artist Super-Strat style guitar with mahogany body and neck... think PRS. Adding the Bullbuckers reminded me immediately of an SG with 'Classic' (60's) humbuckers but with a little more 'poke' in the bridge, like a stock but conicidentally overwound and well voiced one. Because they are (I think) Fender spaced poles, I also installed one on a Custom Squier Tele (bridge) and a pair on another Artist Super-Strat style guitar. Very happy all round. Some time later, I had a chance to play a mate's Epiphone LP Custom with some real Seymour Duncan Pickups on board... a JB Bridge and a Jazz Neck (classic Epi Upgrade). The similarities are uncanny! More recently, my wife and I have each bought new Gibsons; she a HP SG, me an ES LP Special (semi-hollowbody). The HP SG has 'modern' (490) pickups which a just a bit 'naughtier' than the Bullbuckers while maintaing clarity but the Bullbucker tone is in the ballpark. The ES LP (a cross between a 335 and a LP) uses a '57 Classic neck and an Super '57 (overwound) bridge and the Bullbuckers are MUCH naughtier; so they're definitely on the hotter side. So, if you want a 'rockier/naughtier' than vintage LP or SG sound for your Epiphone or other Gibson 'tribute' than these will definitely suit. They also sound great in Fender style guitars and would be a great swapout for standard Squire humbuckers IF you want a Gibson style sound. Ditto any PRS style guitar. They would also be great for "rocking up' a Dot 335/Ibanez Artcore or similar and have to be an absolute no brainer if you own and love an Artist Cherry 7 Anniversry “ I bet they also sound great split too! In summary they're great if you want that classic-to-slightly-hot-rodded Gibson or McCarty PRS sound; at his price they're a total no-brainer. PS: My 12 month evaluation, over 3 different guitars I use live/jamming (leaving the 'real' Gibsons, etc at home) is based on use with some modelling software but mostly with a Mesa Boogie Roadster (100W Dual Rectifier 2 x 12), Marshall JVM410C (100W 2 x 12) and more recently a Positive Grid Bias (Rack) Head (600W with Marshall 1936 2 x 12). So, it's not like I can't 'hear' what they really sound like... and they do sound like ROCK!"
