Irish session guitarist James Mulvaney needed little introduction, so when he asked us which set of pickups we recommended for his Gibson 335 guitar, the answer on this occasion was simple. Pure Vintage Zeros. On occasion we will recommend the marginally hotter Pure Vintage Ones, but the goto set for an almost guaranteed win in a 335 has always been our Zeros.
These are quite a low wind for a set of humbuckers however the clarity of this set works incredibly well with almost all hollowbody guitars that use humbucking pickups.
Thankfully James liked the pickups and very kindly edited together a demo video for us that explain so much better than mere words.
