Nothing comes over a proper humbucker, when it comes to a fat, punchy guitar sound. Whether it is rock, blues, jazz, soul, heavy, or even country music, GAS humbuckers provide a huge range of sounds.


Starting from low output PAFish sounds, and ranging up to the ultimate hi-gain inferno, carefully designed and assembled entirely by hand from the best available parts, GAS-buckers always sound open, no matter their output level!


Designing a humbucker has to be followed by a precise assembly using top quality parts, in order to end up with the desired result: A high quality guitar pickup.


We, at GAS pickups, always keep deep care on all the parts we use for our humbucker! Currently, ALL metal parts that are used on GAS humbuckers (baseplates, covers, slugs, Fillister cheese-head screws, bobbin mounting screws, poleshoes, etc.) are of the BEST available quality worldwide, supplied by Crazyparts, the #1 worldwide supplier for high quality, correct-alloy parts! Also the (unbelieveable!) butyrate bobbins are supllied by Crazyparts!


But, it's the magnetic products we use, which really make the difference on GAS humbuckers! Rough cast AlNiCo II (A2) bars, long rough cast & polished AlNiCo V (A5) bars, and Ceramic OX bars are currently used on our buckers.

Our rough cast A5 magnet bars come from US manufacturer Thomas & Skinner, who supplied US Musical Instruments brands in the golden era of the 50's and 60's. They are exclusively made for GAS Pickups, following the old MMPA standards of 1964, offering the same look, and are also slightly de-gaussed for more dynamics. They feature the same alloy as back then, and this fact can be heard and felt on GAS PAFoids. T&S bars will be installed on our top-line "PAFoid Legend", which will offer THE old school sound, dynamic and mellow as it has to be.


Our polished A5 magnet bars (our main "sound-shaping tools", used on ALL our A5 humbuckers) come from US Top manufacturer Arnold Magnetic Technologies (AMT), who has also been a magnet bar supplier of all leading US Musical Instrument brands in the 50's & 60's!


GAS guitar humbuckers are provided with standard 49,2mm spacing, in double black, zebra, or double white (original '59 ivory color). Some bridge models are also delivered with 52mm spacing, see below for details.


Top quality wire as Elektrisola Polysol P155 & heavy PVA, AWG 42 & 43 is used.


Upon request, German Silver covers (nickel, nickel-antique & gold plated), and an aged pickup look can be offered as options. Take a look on our models here, and contact us for further details!
