** This listing is for a set of 2 brand new FIve/58 pickups - Bridge and Neck position. This set has a Zebra bobbins (Black and Aged White) under Nickel Plated Covers. The main photo is of my personal set installed in a PRS Singlecut. Second photo is the actual set being listed here. **

The Five/58 has been spec’ed/designed around two approaches:

1) based on everything I’ve learned after years of winding my FiftyNiners as close to a PAF as I can with great sonic results, and spec/build ideas that came up that didn’t fit within the PAF build “correctness”.

2) wanting to build a line of pickups that didn’t have the limitations of what goes into a PAF and my appreciation for PRS’s approach of building guitars where they are constantly refining and trying new ways to get better results.

The Five/58 is one of those pickup sets that allowed me to refine and try new things. Though not reinventing the wheel, the Five/58 is wound very similarly to my FiftyNiners, but with modern ABS bobbins with slightly different dimensions and loaded with Alnico 4 magnets for a nice blend of warm tight lows, clear but smooth highs and a balanced midrange.

These pickups offer a different flavour to your PRS Core series guitar, and a great upgrade to PRS S2 and SE series guitars as well as Gibson/Epiphone and other similar styled guitars with dual Humbuckers. The Five/58's come with 4-conductor leads so they can be wired for coil split or phase shift circuits.
