Seymour Duncan Vintage Blues '59 Humbucker Set incudes a pair of calibrated SH-1 '59 model pickups for the neck and bridge positions to churn out thick, buttery tone for blues, jazz, and classic rock. This matched set includes the SH-1n and SH-1b humbucker pickups in black.
The Seymour Duncan SH-1 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. 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.
The Vintage Blues Set includes both the neck (SH-1n) and bridge (SH-1b) pickups. Designed for balanced and warm instruments. Works especially well with mahogany bodies and rosewood fingerboards.
Players include Ben Harper (neck & bridge), Robben Ford (neck &anp; bridge), Mike Einzinger / Incubus (neck), Robert Smith / The Cure.
