Used Epiphone Guitar Pick-up

Sales price RM180.00
"Epiphone’s #1 fan Les Paul and Gibson and Epiphone designer Ted McCarty both get understandable credit in the history of the Kalamazoo factory of the '50s and early '60s. But they were not alone. One other key figure was Seth Lover. We now take humbucking pickups for granted but it might not have happened were it not for Seth Lover. 
It was the mid-’50s when Gibson employee Seth Lover designed an electric guitar pickup which “bucked the hum,” the hum and interference that existing single-coil pickups were prone to suffer. In 1957, Lover’s humbucker pickups became standard issue in the Les Paul model, giving the guitar a fatter, rounder tone. The sound, for many, soon became a defining guitar tone in blues, ’60s proto-rock, metal and beyond.
Some say Seth Lover didn’t “invent” the humbucking pickup. Electro-Voice, a pro-audio company, also worked on an early humbucking design for PAs. But Lover brought it to the guitar world. His 1955 PAF design – which stands for Patent Applied For – is part of guitar folklore. To this day, many guitarists covet a PAF model. "
