The 59 Model bridge pickup is a warm, versatile humbucker with a big PAF sound that is great for playing both big, rich chords and fat sounding leads.
While these vintage style coils give the 59 bridge pickup and airy quality that keeps it planted firmly in the PAF family, the alnico 5 bar magnet, and vacuum wax potting have been added to accommodate lighter guitar strings and louder amplifiers than were ever used in the 50s. The result is a pickup with tons of old school tonal character, but with a brighter top end, scooped mids, and a more compressed sound.
Pair with the 59 neck model for an evenly balanced output and tone. In addition to the alnico 5 magnet and wax potting, the 59 model is hand built with a variety of traditional vintage treatments, such as 42AWG plain enamel mag wire, long legged nickel silver bottom plate, vintage single conductor braided push back lead wire, and no logo.
As with all of the PAF style pickups, the 59 model is wound on Seymour's old Leesona winder from the early Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, MI.
