Better than Gibson '57 Humbuckers
What is your opinion of this product?
I have a set of these in a Gibson Les Paul that came with the 490R and 496T humbuckers. They were ok but I had a set of these SD '59 humbuckers in a Gibson SG I bought new in 1972 and they sound way better than the stock '57 pups did. Anyway I just ordered another set of these last night for my ES 335 to swap out as I feel these SD's are the best sounding PAF style pups out there. I have a collection of guitars from 1972 to present, always selling and buying new guitars and I just like these pups better than the stock pups that come in all guitars from then to now. I have not found a better sounding set of humbuckers and I have tried them all over the past 45yrs of playing and I still rock out on weekends with a Classic Rock and Blues band. Try these and I am sure you will like them as much as I do and they are not those snobby $300 pickups that sound no better.
