Greasy, Crunchy Vintage Ceramic Humbucker Tone

Blistering re-imagination of the mid 70's counterpoint to the venerable T-Top, the Tarback Replica is the newest offering from Manlius Pickups.  Also known as the Super Humbucker, these were found in many Norlin era Gibson guitars and are known for a very distinctive, rich and booming mid response with an aggressive push.  Nice bite to the top end and a tight bass response from the strong ceramic magnet.  The Tarback punches above its DCR output weight and gives you a hot tone worthy of a wide range of styles.

These are vintage interpretations based off of some sets that I personally own.  These feature vintage outputs, offsets, and magnets coupled with modern playability features including universal depth base-plates, premium alloy pole screws and slugs, and durable ABS bobbins.  

Vintage cool with classic output and the raw vibe of ceramic magnets!  A great combo.

For best performance, these pickups are wax potted - Not dunked in black epoxy
