    Nice sounding pickup. Clear and articulate and fairly warm for a bridge. Pairs well with my Seth Lover neck humbucker. I’m using 500k volume and tone pots with a .022 capacitor and a treble bleed circuit.

I had bought the '59 as an afterthought since I wanted that "single coil tele spank" in the parts caster I built. I built the guitar with 2 volume and o…
