FREE fitting to your instrument.
Versatile P.A.F.-type humbucker. Great for country, jazz, blues, funk, classic rock and heavy rock.
Late-'50s, vintage-correct, humbucker sound. Warm and crystalline clean tones. Full and bright distorted tones. Smooth sustain. Classic appointments include plain enamel wire, long legged bottom plate, vintage single conductor cable and no logo. Compared to the SH-55 Seth Lover, the '59 has slightly more scooped mids and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
Available in both neck and bridge models. Often a '59 neck is used together with a hotter bridge pickup like the SH-4 JB or SH-13 Dimebucker for extra versatility.
For balanced and warm instruments. Works especially well with mahogany bodies and rosewood fingerboards.
Four-conductor cable. Trembucker. Nickel or gold-plated cover. 7-string version. Seymour Duncan logo. Available in matched set of '59 bridge and '59 neck. Colors (humbucker spacing).
Ben Harper (neck & bridge), Robben Ford (neck & bridge), Mike Einzinger / Incubus (neck), Robert Smith / The Cure
At Seymour Duncan, we LOVE pickups. We’re continually designing, and voicing new models for ourselves and our customers. Over the years, that’s a lot of pickups. To help you choose the perfect pickup for you and your guitar, use our Pickup Selector, listen to our many sound samples and videos, or ask the most passionate and knowledgable community of pickup connoisures on our Forum.
Even so, we know it can be hard to pick the perfect pickup, so since 1979, way back when there were just written descriptions, our remedy has been the 21 Day Real World Exchange.
Buy the pickups you think will be the best and go crazy: play it, feel it, and whatever else you can legally do! If its not right for you don’t sweat it. Just give us a call, let us know what you liked and didn’t like, and well work together to swap the pickup for something that will blow your mind.
