Product Description

The most important thing about the vintage Patent Applied For pickup was its warm, smooth tone and sustain that was unlike anything heard before. The SH-1 is built with the same kind of enameled wire, nickel-plated studs, and balanced coil windings that humbucker inventor Seth Lover used in his first pickups. It looks and sounds just like a '59. Single conductor cable is standard. With traditional spacing.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (19 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "If your reading my heading, please continue reading the remainder because I know what you are looking for."
Sound: IF you are looking for a replica sound of the other more expensive name brand '59 humbucker that starts with a G, then you will be delighted just as I was. I needed to replace the bridge pickup in my Les Paul because the '59 in my other Les Paul sounded sooooo good. I would describe the pickup to be 'squawky,' when digging hard into the strings, but with the volume on the guitar backed down, it presents a warm and balanced tone as well. Feature: Features? well... I do like the fact that it is a two conductor pickup - so it was a breeze to install. Ease of Use: I think this pickup would bring even the darker sounding woods to life because of its slightly scooped mids and has just enough treble Quality: Im pretty confident the pickup will be great quality, I've had many people recommend these to me. Value: Yep. It was great not to pay tax or shipping on this particular product. Overall: If this pickup were to go foul I would probably just try the sh-4 instead of the sh-1, just for kicks.
Style of Music: Classic rock

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
