The result of a close collaboration between Billy F Gibbons and Thomas Nilsen (Cream T Pickups).
The 'Original Banger' is a vintage output humbucker pickup with just 6 pole pieces and a grey fibre plate top.
Billy F Gibbons designed the pickup and wanted a vintage look using grey coloured fibre material. He also specified having the treble side of the pole pieces further away from the bridge on the guitar.
Thomas Nilsen came up with the idea of using 42 and 42 awg wire on each coil. Each coil has 50% 42awg and 50% 43awg wire which creates a unique tone that both Billy F Gibbons and Thomas Nilsen found very unique. This is complemented by Billy F Gibbons idea of having the treble side away from the bridge and bass side close to the bridge.
