    Magnet: Alnico II
    Wire: 4-Conductor

    The Super '57 offers coil splitting for "single-coil" sounds!
    "Straight Split” coil-splitting offers pure single coil tone and differs from LP Standards and Studios that have a “Super Tap” coil-tap, which still has a small amount of humbucking.
    And it also offers a "boost circuit" via push/push switching in the volume control if installed!
    The boost circuit has a user-adjustable 10-dB boost for added power and frequency range for solos, single-note picking and dirty chording (depending on amp settings) and features true bypass that disengages the boost completely, ensuring pure passive Les Paul tone.

    Gibson's new Super ’57 pickup features more windings for a hotter output, producing sweet vintage tone with extra sizzle.
    Among the qualities that make Gibson's original "Patent Applied For" humbucking pickups so unique are the subtle variations between coil windings. For the first few years of their productions—1955 to 1961—Gibson's PAF humbuckers were wound using imprecise machines, resulting in pickups with slightly different output and tone. The 'Super '57 pickups is the result of Gibson's drive to capture and recreate this characteristic.. The Super '57 has a wide frequency response and increased output.

    The Super '57 is made by Gibson to the exact same specs as the original PAFs, including Alnico II magnets, nickel-plated pole pieces, nickel slugs, maple spacers, and vintage-style, 2-conductor braided wiring. Gibson added poly-coated wiring, which improves consistency by eliminating thick or thin spots on the wiring, and wax potting, which removes all internal air space and any chance of microphonic feedback
