About This Listing


A vintage-voiced, extremely versatile neck pickup that pairs well with most bridge humbuckers.


The €™59 Model neck pickup is one of our most popular pickups because it€™s so versatile. It€™s designed in the spirit of the original P.A.F. humbuckers of the 1950s, with sweet sustain, full-sounding chords, clear and bright attack, but we€™ve made a few refinements to slightly modernize the design and make it more adaptable to different styles.

The €™59 has a full low end which is great for adding character to your clean sounds and sustain to your leads. The high end is slightly boosted for improved pick-attack clarity and the mids are a little scooped for an open, smooth sound that€™s great for preserving the clarity of the individual notes in a chord. Play softly and the mids and highs seem to fade back, but pick hard and the note will be confident and clear. There isn€™t a genre that the €™59 can€™t work within. It pairs nicely with a high output bridge humbucker like the JB or Custom but is equally at home with more moderate pickups like the €™59 bridge. And it€™s a popular choice for those with humbucker-routed Telecasters as well. And if you order a four-conductor version for coil splitting, its single coil mode is crystal clear.

The €™59 Model neck pickup is wound on Seymour€™s Leesona 102 pickup winding machine, the very one that was used in the Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, MI in the 1950s. It comes standard with a long-legged nickel silver bottom plate, vintage single conductor braided push back lead wire and no logo.
