* SOLD * Vintage 1984 Gibson / Sonex 180 Deluxe PUPs * SOLD *
Super Humbucker / Velvet Brick / Zebra Pickup Pair
Originally for Invader, Sonex
Lead Length: Neck = 11", Bridge = 9"
Up for sale is a good working pair of Sonex 180 Deluxe pickups, also known as "SuperHumbuckers" and "Velvet Bricks." These are high-output pickups that were used on at least a couple of Norlin-era guitars, including the Sonex Deluxe, and the Invader.
These pickups both came from a 1984 Gibson Invader, and the pig tail extension is actually the way they came as installed by Gibson -- as the Invader guitars was created as an all-wood alternative to the Sonex 180, in order to use up the stockpile of Sonex parts.
These PUPS sound great, have no issues. They do have the innovative 3-adjustment screw plates, and you will have to drill some extra holes in the PUP rings to take advantage of this cool balancing adjustment feature -- unless they are going to be direct replacements for Sonex or Invader guitars.
