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.

The alnico II magnets ensure long lasting sustain as today’s hotter magnets can rob that cherished characteristic. The enamel wire delivers that vintage bite your instrument will love you for. Please Note: Covered pickups are extra and optional.

Toneful Goodness!

I wanted a neck pickup that had warmth, clarity and an all around great tone. The 1959 Special Humbucker nailed it! Great, great pickup!


I purchased these pickups (59 Specials) for use in a project guitar and they are excellent!! Clear, crisp, loud, but clean. surprising output for fairly medium range windings. Very impressive. Definitely as good as much pricier models, makes my PRS stock pickups sound pretty thin, TBH. I'm thinking about updating those now, haha. One project at a time. If you are debating whether to get these, go for it, I believe you will not be sorry!

Ordered these pickups for install in a LP kit. Perfect fit and the quality is beyond reproach. You can certainly pay a lot more for humbuckers, but in my opinion, you would needlessly be chasing the last 2% of perfection. Already have plans to buy a set of 57’s for my next project. If you are on the fence about these, just do it; you won’t be sorry
