Product Description & Reviews

Thornbucker pickups were born out of a desire to give guitarists a humbucking pickup set that has all of the best attributes of the coveted '50s "patent applied for" style pickups, with none of the downsides. Suhr has also included a few modern touches: four conductor wiring, a variety of spacings, and the consistency and quality that Suhr is known for. Inspired by Pete Thorn's frustration with existing boutique pickups, Suhr set out to create a pickup set that delivered clarity, versatility and soul. Having experimented with all of the variables (magnets, wire, covers, and winds), and making countless prototypes, they then listened. Eventually they hit on the formula that captures the essence of the most coveted '50s "PAF" style pickups. If you're a player searching for a product that captures all the subtleties, nuance and feel of a great vintage pickup, then Thornbuckers are the perfect pickup for you. "I have played many two-humbucker instruments that have failed to inspire. Many work great into a dirty amp, but try and play clean, or semi-dirty, especially in the neck or middle positions, and it is mud city! And if I switched mid-gig to a guitar with single coils, it was often like a different tonal universe, requiring adjustments to my amp and effects. It started to seem almost like the norm. And yet, my experience with great examples of vintage guitars taught me that it was indeed possible to get versatility, clarity, and inspiring clean and semi-dirty tones out of humbuckers. We're overjoyed with the enthusiasm from players for the Thornbucker humbucking pickups! The pickups have been a resounding success, garnering praise for their extraordinary tone and balance. I'm truly honored and excited that so many guitarists are enjoying them as much as I do."
