While these vintage style coils give the 59 Model humbuckers 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.
The 59s are great for all types of rock and blues. In addition to the alnico 5 magnet and wax potting, we hand build the 59 Model with a variety of traditional vintage treatments, such as 42AWG plain enamel mag wire, long legged nickel silver bottom plate, vintage single-conductor braided push-back lead wire, and no logo. As with all of our P.A.F. style pickups, the 59 Model is wound on Seymour's old Leesona winder from the early Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, MI.
The SH-1 Vintage Blues Set provides a late-'50s, vintage-correct, humbucker sound with warm and crystalline clean tones. Full and bright distorted tones with smooth sustain are available from this classic-style pickup. Classic appointments include plain enamel wire, a long-legged bottom plate, vintage single-conductor cable, and the absence of a Seymour Duncan logo. Compared to the SH-55 Seth Lover, the SH-1 features a brighter top end, a more compressed sound, and is vacuum wax-potted for squeal-free performance.
