Manufacturer's Description from John Suhr

Suhr pickups are the result of extensive R&D and over 20 years experience in designing and manufacturing pickups for some of the world's most legendary artists. Hand crafted in the USA, we take great pride in offering musicians a wide variety of quality pickups to suit every playing style.

HUMBUCKERS

Suhr Humbucking pickups are a unique combination of proprietary winding techniques and selection of high grade components. Hand crafted for a lifetime of unparalleled quality and tone, our Humbucking pickups include 100% USA made Alnico V magnets and wire manufactured to our specifications. We offer guitarists a variety of pickups for the most dynamic and musical playing experience available.

Thornbucker

Balance. Warmth. Sweetness. Clarity. Versatility. Tone!

Thornbucker pickups are born out of a desire to give guitarists a humbucking pickup that has all of the best attributes of the coveted 50's "patent applied for" style pickups...with non of the downsides. We have also included a few modern touches: four conductor wiring, a variety of spacings, and the consistency and quality that Suhr is known for.

From the outset, tone was our primary concern. We were inspired by Pete Thorn’s frustration with existing boutique pickups to create a pickup set that delivered clarity, versatility and soul. Pete came to us and said, “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 knew that we could solve this problem and develop a great solution. Through our experimentation with all the variables: magnets, wire, covers, and winds, we made countless prototypes and listened. Eventually we hit on the formula that captures all of the essence of the most coveted 50’s “patent applied for” style pickups. If you are a player searching for a product that captures all the subtleties, nuances and feel of a great vintage pickup, then Thornbuckers are the perfect pickup for you.
