    I'm not that familiar with mini-bucker construction, but I'm pretty sure that's magnet wire.

    Those are Gibson Mini Hums. The wire is the red Poly they use for those. The bobbins are a flexable clear bobbin. Now here's the kicker, the mini hums are done with ceramic mags.

    mini-humbucker

    When Gibson introduced the Les Paul Deluxe in 1969, it incorporated the mini-humbucker which had only been available on certain Gibson-made Epiphone models. With its smaller size, narrow magnetic field and unique design combination, the mini-humbucker produces bright and focused output, while retaining the famous Gibson humbucker performance.

    Gibson now offers a vintage replica of the original mini-humbucker, featuring adjustable pole pieces and bar Alnico II magnets. It's authentic in every detail, from its creme plastic mounting and special coated enamel wire, to its maple spacers and vintage braided lead wire.

    Haven't seen a ceramic one yet though it's an easy modification.

    Hmmm.. I just rewound 3 minis from a White Gibson Reverse Firebird VII for one of my employees. All three, ceramic mags in both bobbins(non-adjustable, both bobbins w/ mags). Which these 3 make quite a few of them I have rewound with ceramic mags.

    Now, I have also rewound a few that are like the picture above (one adjustable coil) that have the ceramic mags too installed. I am not saying all of them are like that. But I can tell that they are done with ceramics too. I have rewound quite a few.

    I am going to review all my pictures I have saved of my rewinds that I do and see what I got for pictures of these. I know that I have some somewhere and try to post some.
