Cream T BFG Original Banger bridge-pickup
The original Banger
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. Billy F Gibbons then attached the red tape to top off the look. Thomas Nilsen from Cream T 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. The ‘Original Banger’ turned out to be a magic connection between these two main features.
