There are certain years that have captivated guitar players because of their cherished tone and the year 1959 is certainly one of them! Whether single coil or humbucker, the 1959 pickup has been sought after as one of the most recognized for its majestic vintage tone. We have made every researchable effort to replicate this magic pickup and make it one of the best on the market!

Constructed of period correct materials right down to the maple spacers, this pickup delivers! The tone is unapproachable and will easily captivate your ears with that amazing balance of highs, mids and bass response yielding unprecedented vintage tone. The pickup is made with plain enamel wire and alnico II magnets, just like back in the day.

    These are the most authentic PAF style pickups I have ever played! I love the tone, so warm and articulate to the touch!!! Notes just bloom and sustain right off the neck.

    Jose you have a fan and customer for life. Thank you so much my friend.

    Put these in an early 80s SG Special.. Used a .47pF tone capacitor. Very happy with the sound.

    That classic 59 growl is all about this. Fantastic balance cleans up very well
