The Burstbucker Pro is a more modern incarnation of the model, which swaps the Alnico II magnet for an Alnico V magnet.
Unlike the other Burstbuckers, which are sold individually, the Pro models are sold in calibrated pairs. The ’57 Classic is another hugely popular Gibson pickup.
The Burstbucker 2 is slightly ‘hotter’, with more turns of wire.
According to Gibson, its output is closer to that of a ’57 Classic.
Tonally, they offer ‘enhanced’ PAF tone that’s a bit brighter with more ‘bite’. In many respects it is very similar to the Burstbucker- it offers ‘vintage’ PAF style tone, too, for example. However, where the ’57 Classic differs is that its two coils are balanced.
This gives it a slightly richer, less ‘edgy’ tone that tends more towards ‘vintage’.

Here, we’ll take a tour of these, and explain the differences between them.
