Utilising new technology created by Thomas of Cream T Pickups it is now possible to scan, profile and recreate 100% replicas of legendary guitar pickups.
Cream T have set out to revolutionise the pickup market using the ‘Oracle Pickup Scanner’.
…and what better place to start than with original '59 Les Paul guitars.
Introducing ’The Clone 2 - 1959'
A set of humbucker pickups that sound exactly the same as the pickups in a legendary 1959 Les Paul.
In June 2019 Cream T visited a collector in Japan to scan the pickups in his original 1959 Les Paul.
Under controlled conditions the original 1959 pickups were measured at 8.42k in the bridge and 8.23k in the neck. The magnet strength was also measured to ensure a clone that equals the tone of the original pickup.
