Seymour Duncan SH1 59 Humbucker Pickup

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 (20 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

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. ""Best Replacement or Upgrade Pickup Set""
Overall: I purchased and installed the Seymour Duncan "Vintage Blues Set" which is a '59 humbucker in the bridge and a '59 humbucker in the neck. I know a lot of guitarists prefer a SD JB humbucker in the bridge for a hotter sound, but I must say Ronnie Montrose swore by this matched set. All of his guitars had SD '59's in them. Mine are in a 2011 Gibson USA SG Standard. I didn't care for the "Zebra" Burstbucker #2 & #3 with Alnico II magnets. The '59's use an Alnico V magnet which I think has a much fuller tone. Anyway, I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a matched set of replacement humbuckers to go with the SD "59's. They are really really good and sell at a fair price.
Style of Music: 1970's hard rock & heavy metal.
