PBF Guitar Series: Rock or Jazz neck humbucker

Our PBF guitar pickup line offers smooth, vintage humbucker tone with specific pairs tuned for the main genres of music. Bill Bartolini collaborated with Ed Reynolds on the design of PBF pickups. Ed was a builder of excellent guitars and basses and a top notch repairman in the Chicago area in the 70's and early 80's. He has continued his work in the Austin, Texas and now focuses exclusively on electric guitars.
The PBF-55 is well suited for both Jazz and Rock.

The Jazz Guitar Pair the PBF-55 neck and PBF-57 bridge provide the same focused lows of the Vintage Pair, but with a softer, more rounded, warmer, more diffuse attack. The pair is highly recommended for Jazz and Jazz/Rock applications, or for smoothing out the harshness of some heavier solid bodies.

The Rock 'n 'Roll pair the PBF-55 neck and PBF-77D bridge satisfy the need for clarity and smooth sweetness from the neck pickup and power with unequalled smoothness and definition from the bridge pickup.

The tone of the PBF series pickups is simply our distillation of the best features of Vintage Humbucker tone. All PBF series pickups are cast in epoxy to remove unwanted feedback and microphonics.

PBF pickups are available in Chrome plated, Nickel plated and Gold Plated covers. Their traditional, clean appearance will look equally at home in your '59 Paul, semi-hollowbody electric, or your Heavy Metal machine. For those who prefer the unbridled tone of uncovered pickups, they are available in ABS covers in black or white colors.

Tone Description

Rock or Jazz tone: creamy smooth treble, excellent mids, crisply defined bass response
Bartolini had several different packaging variations over the years. The first were just wrapped in bubble wrap with a sticker on them. Later, they used plastic boxes. Then they moved to cardboard boxes.

These pickups are new and unused. They were purchased from a now-defunct bass store and do not come with manufacturer warranty. They have been tested and are working and we guarantee them to be in working order.

PLEASE BE AWARE, PICKUPS THAT HAVE BEEN INSTALLED ARE NOT RETURNABLE. PLEASE MAKE SURE THEY FIT BEFORE YOU START CLIPPING WIRES OR SOLDERING.
