Seymour Duncan SH1 59 Humbucker Pickup

Constructed with enameled wire, nickel-plated studs, and balanced coil windings, this vintage-style pickup sounds just as smooth as a '59 humbucker.

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.

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.
Musical Background:
Playing since 1979.

1970's hard rock & heavy metal.
