im pretty sure the word your looking for is humbucker,

sustain is the duration for which the guitar holds a single note

a pickup is the metal "thing" between the bottom of the neck, and the bridge, it "picks up" on the strings vibrating through the change in the magnetic field

i think a humbucker is a certain type of pickup, or way its set up, not sure, it looks like a rectangle thats about twice as big as a single coil (the "regular" kind) pickup

if you want to see a single coiled pickup, look for a stock Fender Strat, the three metal things in the center of the guitars are single coils

look in the same place for a Gibson Les Paul for a humbucker

Sustain refers to how long the note rings out, if a note rings for a long time from one pluck of the plectrum it has lots of sustain, if it dies quickly, weak sustain.

Pickup refers to the type of mechanic required to 'pickup' the sound. This is usually the things underneath the strings in the body of the guitar where you pluck your strings, there can be 1 2 or 3 of them.

Humbucker is a type of pickup, other types are like single coil pickup, compared to a humbucker pickup.

Sustain is how long a note lasts before is fades away. It's usuually determined by the quality of the guitar.

Pickups are the little metal/plastic things that are near where you pick, usually in a rectangular shape.


The pickups are the white things. (not the ones that say "tone" and "volume"

The last term is probably "humbucker," and it refers to a type of pickup. See how in the picture, one of the picks is wider than the other two? That's because it is essentially two regular pickups built together as one. They are louder, and don't hum or fuzz, thus "bucking the hum."
