This Seymour Duncan SH-1 '59 Model Neck Pickup, Zebra, is a versatile P.A.F.-type humbucker. It works great for country, jazz, funk, blues, classic rock and heavy rock.
Late '50s, Vintage Correct, Humbucker Sound
If you're looking for some classic late '50s sound, the SH-1 boasts vintage-correct, humbucker tone. Expect Warm and crystalline clean tones or full and bright distorted tones, and admire its smooth sustain. The pickup includes classic appointments like a plain enamel wire, long legged bottom plate and no logo. The '59 has slightly more scooped mids, compared to the SH-55 Seth Lover, and is vacuum wax potted for a performance free of squeals.
Combine it with a Seymour Duncan Bridge Pickup
The '59 neck version pairs nicely with a hotter bridge pickup like the SH-4 JB or SH-13 Dimebucker, to provide extra versatility.
For Balanced and Warm Instruments
This pickup is designed for balanced and warm instruments and works especially well with mahogany bodies and rosewood fingerboards.
