The HONEYBUCKER set is our second set of humbucking pickups and boy do we like them! The Honeys are for people who are looking for something a little bit louder, with a tad more midrange than the LOVERS.


The HONEYBUCKERS have a few unique features under their covers.

Not only are the coils mismatched to increase transparency and dynamics. We also wound one coil with 42 AWG plain enamel wire (Made in USA to our specs) and the other coil with 42 AWG polyurethan wire to get the best of both worlds - the sweetness and depth of PE and the faster attack and clarity of PU.


    • HONEYBUCKER PLUS (bridge,  8.1 kOhm), HONEYBUCKER (neck, 7.1 kOhm)
    • 42 AWG Plain Enamel (Made in Germany to our specs) & Polyurethan wire (Made in USA)
    • mismatched coils
    • cryo-treated AlNiCo 5 magnets
    • authentic 2-stranded vintage braided wire leads
  • All VIP pickups are guaranteed to be free from manufacturing defects for a period of 5 years. The warranty applies only to the original purchaser with proof of purchase. Any modification done to the product will void the warranty.

    If you have purchased the pickup through a dealer, please contact them directly for handling warranty-related matters.

    Pickups purchased directly from us may be exchanged or returned within 14 days of purchase. We can only accept items that are in their original brand new condition and show zero signs of use (see exceptions for pickups below). Any items returned in less than brand new condition will be refused. You must first contact us for return authorization and instructions prior to returning an item. The buyer is responsible for return shipping costs. We cannot accept returns or exchanges on custom orders or non-stock items.

    We are not responsible for any damages caused by installation, or use of non-supplied mounting hardware or covers.

    If the lead wire(s) need to be replaced (due to shortening, un-braiding or solder residue), there is a $20 per pickup re-lead fee for braided wire or 4 conductor cable. If an installed cover has been scratched or damaged, there is a $40 replacement fee per cover.

    Please understand that there is no warranty on VIPots once touched by a soldering iron, as we cannot control how the VIPots are installed and exposed to heat during installation.

    Vintage parts do not come with any warranty and cannot be returned.

    VIP guarantees your order to be as described and free from defect upon delivery. If your order arrives defective, please contact us within 3 days of delivery and we will replace the damaged items.

    Items that were lost or damaged during shipping are only eligible for replacement if shipped with an insured mailing service (USPS Priority Mail, UPS Ground). Damaged or lost items cannot be refunded.

    All shipping costs will be the responsibility of the customer.
