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 enamel wire and alnico II magnets, to give a tone just like back in the day.

Telecaster pickups

Purchased a Humbar neck pick up and a bridge lap pick up for my telecaster. Was looking to give it a Keith Richards style sound. The pick ups are excellent in every way. Both together and independent. My telecaster has been transformed into my own Keith Richards micawber telecaster. I will be purchasing again for my next guitar mod.

Just What I Wanted

The sound was just what I needed and looked for on a custom re fit build for my Firefly Les Paul . Fantastic Customer Care in helping me decide and fit my needs for my unique installation. I will continue to be a customer. These are one of the best Pick ups to date for me and I have tried allot from the name brand to unknowns . Pricing could not be fairer!

Epiphone Nouveau

Thanks, guys, for the pickups and a huge improvement over the previous ones. This is not a common guitar as if I remember, Gibson Nashville in the mid 80's made only 26 after they got in a tussle with PRS and had to quit making them. You can see the similarity. (Epi on the left Prs on the right). Originally it had Bill Lawrence pickups and one quit on the previous owner, so he put in Duncan triple rails. Since I have a lot of single coil guitars, I just wanted this one back to basics with a couple of humbuckers. Installed very easily and I put in a vintage paper & oil capacitor. Sounds like it should! I am getting more of your pickups and upgrades to several guitars I have. Thanks again. Peter
