SH-1 59 Vintage Blues Humbucker Pickup Set
by Seymour Duncan


Currently out of Stock



The Seymour Duncan SH-1 59 Vintage Blues Humbucker Pickup Set is made up of one '59 bridge and one '59 neck pickup to deliver warm, full, P.A.F. style tone to any dual humbucker guitar. While these vintage style coils give the '59 models an airy quality that keeps them planted firmly in the P.A.F. family, the alnico 5 bar magnet and vacuum wax potting have been added to compensate for lighter guitar strings and louder amplifiers than were ever used in the 50s, the result is a pickup with tons of old-school tonal character but with a brighter top end and a more compressed sound, great for all types of rock and blues. To finish the sound, look and style, Seymour Duncan gives the '59 pickups a variety of traditional vintage treatments such as 42 AWG plain enamel magnet wire, long legged nickel silver bottom plate, vintage single-conductor braided push-back lead wire, and no logo.
