The Seymour Duncan TB-59 is identical to the SH-1 '59 Model bridge pickup but with Trembucker spacing for guitars with greater than 2.00" string spacing (E to E) at the bridge.
The Seymour Duncan TB-59 '59 Model Bridge Pickup is a versatile PAF-type humbucker similar to the original "Patent Applied For" humbucker that was invented by Seth Lover at Gibson in the 1950's. Great for country, jazz, blues, funk, classic rock and heavy rock. This pickup provides a late-'50s, vintage-correct, humbucker sound. The sound is warm with crystalline clean tones and provides full and bright distorted tones, with smooth sustain. Includes four conductor cable and Seymour Duncan logo. Compared to the SH-55 Seth Lover, the '59 has slightly more scooped mids and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
Available only for bridge position. Designed for balanced and warm instruments. Works especially well with mahogany bodies and rosewood fingerboards.
Players include Ben Harper (neck & bridge), Robben Ford (neck & bridge), Mike Einzinger / Incubus (neck), Robert Smith / The Cure.
