Gibson Pickup Shop opens for business with Historic, Original and Modern collections

The Historic Collection opens the sale of vintage-minded pickups previously exclusive to Gibson Custom Shop guitars.

If you ever wanted to ‘pick up’ a particular set of pickups by Gibson without the rest of the guitar – you can now, with the launch of the Gibson Pickup Shop.

Collating 40 original designs into three major collections – Historic, Original and Modern – the pickups are said to be assembled “from premium materials using time-tested methods” at the Gibson Pickup Shop in Nashville, Tennessee.

The collection offers the wide range of P-90s, Humbuckers, Mini-Humbuckers, T-Types found across Gibson’s instrument fare. But with the Historic Collection, things get very exciting for vintage fans: these are the hand-assembled pickups previously exclusive to Gibson Custom Shop guitars.

“The Gibson Pickup Shop Historic Collection delivers vintage tone inspired by the Gibson Golden Era that gave birth to the Custombucker, one of the most prized and coveted Gibson pickups,” writes a product description for the Historic Collection. “[It’s] the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality, and sound excellence. Each hand-assembled pickup celebrates Gibson’s legacy through accuracy, authenticity, and attention to detail.”

The pickups range in price from $119 to $489, and come in single pieces or sets. Learn more about the full range of Gibson Pickup Shop products at the Gibson website.
