ThroBak '70/Select pickups were made with one goal in mind: to re-create the unique resonance of the early ‘70's T-Top pickups that have become part of the tonal fabric of some of the most famous rock and blues recordings of the 1970's. Players like Angus Young of AC/DC, Jimmy Page and B.B. King have made some of their most iconic live and studio recordings with the early '70's vintage Patent Sticker T-Top pickup. Guitars with these early Patent Sticker T-Tops were built for a short period, but the timeless tones they created changed rock and blues history. You can hear these early T-top tones in AC/DC recordings from "Let There Be Rock" through "Highway to Hell" and beyond. Jimmy Page in the "Song Remains The Same" and B.B. King "Live In Africa" also showcase the power, warmth and nuance of these early vintage T-Top pickups. Now you can capture those same tones in your guitar with the ThroBak '70/Select T-Top replica electric guitar pickups.
ThroBak '70/Select pickups are sought out by fans of the elusive early '70's T-Top sound. The ThroBak '70/Select set has become the definitive choice for players seeking the tone of 1970 Gibson SG's with the “Made In USA” stamp, the guitar and year favored by Angus Young of AC/DC for decades. Fans of Jimmy Page's double black T-Top bridge tones also need look no further than the ThroBak '70/Select set. Not all T-top's were created equal and ThroBak knows why and applied their knowledge in the creation of the '70/Select set.
