This Seymour Duncan SH16 59/Custom Hybrid Humbucker Pickup pairs the lush vintage warmth of the '59 model with the hotter crunch of our Custom series humbuckers. It combines the best qualities of both pickups because it is both pickups. Expect crisp, clear highs, ample lows, and aggressive midrange growl in humbucking mode. Splitting the coils yields the strong, full sound of Custom coil with it's 7.1k dc resistance.
The 59/Custom Hybrid pickup is recommended for use in the bridge position and snarls when you dig in, but cleans up when you lighten up. This powerful, versatile, and expressive pickup from Seymour Duncan is particularly suited to lead guitar work. Includes screws, springs, and wiring instructions.
