About This Listing

The Seymour Duncan SH-1 '59 Bridge Humbucker - zebra. FREE shipping anywhere in the USA!

Application
Versatile P.A.F.-type humbucker. Great for country, jazz, blues, funk, classic rock and heavy rock.

Description
Late-'50s, vintage-correct, humbucker sound. Warm and crystalline clean tones. Full and bright distorted tones. Smooth sustain. Classic appointments include plain enamel wire, long legged bottom plate, vintage single conductor cable and no logo. Compared to the SH-55 Seth Lover, the '59 has slightly more scooped mids and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.

Complete setup
Available in both neck and bridge models. Often a '59 neck is used together with a hotter bridge pickup like the SH-4 JB or SH-13 Dimebucker for extra versatility.

Guitars
For balanced and warm instruments. Works especially well with mahogany bodies and rosewood fingerboards.

Available mods
Four-conductor cable. Trembucker. Nickel or gold-plated cover. 7-string version. Seymour Duncan logo. Available in matched set of '59 bridge and '59 neck.

About the Guitars: We used a '60's Classic Les Paul with a fresh set of American Flyer 10-46 gauge strings.

About the Amps: We employed the "highest common denominator" philosophy in our amp selection. For clean tones, we used a silverface Fender Super Reverb with stock 4x10 "blue frame" speakers. We kept the Bright Switch "On" throughout. For crunch tones, we used a well-worn Marshall JCM 800 50 watt master volume head through a new Marshall 1960A Celestion®-loaded 4x12 cabinet. We plugged into the High output. With both amps we close miked straight-on with SM-57s through a Soundcraft Spirit Folio Mixer.

These are the amp settings:

Fender Super Reverb Bright Switch 3 5 6.5 4.5 2.5 On Volume Treble Midrange Bass Reverb Marshall JCM 800 Output 5.5 10 4 4 2 7 High Presence Bass Midrange Treble Master Pre-Amp

Returns:
Most pickups can't be returned once installed because of the installation process that requires soldering, etc. Seymour Duncan however offers a fantastic 21 Day Return Policy! Here's the details:
Seymour Duncan / Basslines offers our 21 Day Real World Exchange Policy on all new pickups purchased in the U.S. and some other participating countries, which states the following: If for any reason you're not satisfied with the pickup's sound or construction, return it and your receipt to your dealer, or direct to the factory within 21 days for exchange with another pickups of equal or lesser value. To do this, please just and include your invoice number and the new pickup you'd like to exchange towards.
