PRS 57/08 pickups deliver the iconic warmth and responsive tone of 1950s-era guitars. Inspired by 1957 humbuckers and introduced in 2008 (thus the name), 57/08s are handwound at PRS with vintage-style wire (made by the same machine that fabricated all the wire in '50s pickups). Paul Reed Smith's experimentation with vintage-inspired pickup designs culminated with the 57/08 — a pickup that embodies the best sonic qualities of classic humbuckers, along with modern improvements in clarity, consistency, and tone. Available in Treble and Bass versions for bridge- and neck-position deployment in your guitar, PRS 57/08 pickups have been embraced by serious guitar players worldwide, becoming modern classics in their own right. Try a pair in your guitar — you'll be delighted with the tone and responsiveness.
