    Comments about Seymour Duncan Vintage Blues '59 Humbucker Set:

    That sound in your head when you think you got that song just right? Well these give it to you. I put a set of these in my P.R.S. S-22 custom and man it was like I had my old Gibby 59'r Pauly back.(kick myself every time for sellin her). It's like taking a trip in the old way back machine. The sweetness is back 10 fold. Yeah I know, wife say's I ramble on. But I gotta tell ya, with these you can Ramble on. Some of the youger players out there won't remember the feel and warmth of these oldy but greaties. But thats their loss. If you want fat sweetness back in your hands?? By all means get these. You won't regret it. Remember If it's too loud ur too old. P.S. These are even wired the old 59 style so you can have that neck pup faceing the other way. Your own Greeny sound back again. much sweeter that way.......

        Better Than Gibson Burstbuckers Or '57

            Comments about Seymour Duncan Vintage Blues '59 Humbucker Set:

            I have owned every Gibson Burstbucker type, '57 Classic and Custom bucker Pickups and yes Gibson has great sounding pickups, but never have I heard pickups sound so good!

            I was totally blown away by these pickups. I replaced my Gibson '57 Classic and '57 Plus with these Duncan pickups. The '57's sound dull and muddy compared to these Duncan SH-1 Vintage Blues Pickup Set.

            I swear you will fall over when you pay these pickups. The neck reads 7.77 ohms and the bridge reads 8.54 ohms.

            I cannot get over how these pickups sound compared to Gibson pickups....I used to swear by the Gibson '57's and Burstbucker Pro's, now they are running second and third to the Duncan's.

            BUY THESE PICKUPS IF YOU WANT THAT TRUE 1959 / 1960 PAF TONE..

              Comments about Seymour Duncan Vintage Blues '59 Humbucker Set:

              I purchased this set for my third Epi Les Paul Studio and I couldn't be happier. They are both clean and crisp and sound great clean or dirty. The neck pickup is great for driving beat with nice bass tone while the bridge pickup is very crisp and a little hotter with nice treble sound.
              I feel I don't have to replace the pots or switches on the Epi as these pickups do it all. I couldn't beat the price for a set of nice pickups and figured I would try them, good choice.

                Replaced the good original pick ups in a PRS SE Custom Semi Hollowbody. I play mostly clean so I can't comment much on the distortion. These pick ups are more sensitive to playing nuances, louder,and do distort easier than the original pick ups. They are similar to the pick ups in my Guild Bluesbird (SH-1's) and I highly recommend them.

                    I put a set of these 59's in my stock Epiphone Les Paul Standard and WOW , what a difference . Not only are they cheaper to buy in this Vintage Blues Set , than seperately , but the outputs of both pickups are calibrated to be the same , which I can really appreciate . The tone is sweet & smooth in clean and distorted modes .

                        I bought the 59 Blues Seymour Duncan set for a hollowbody guitar i just picked up. They have a fantastic vintage clean sound to them and when you add overdrive they have good sustain and tone. I would recommend these pickups to anyone, huge improvement to my guitar!

                          Removed the stock humbucker set and installed the vintage Blues 59's. Added pure nickle strings as well. Transformed the guitar from real good to perfect (for me). Can't put it down. I have a deluxe USA Strat and it has been sitting quite a while since this upgrade. What a difference.

                            Seem to be sturdy , Cant really say , playing them in a Les Paul Florentine and I am going to install a mid boost and coil splitting soon .
