The name says it all! There are certain years that have captivated guitar players because of their cherished tone and the year 1959 is certainly one of them! This is why the Legacy Humbucker is based on this pickup, except we changed the Alnico II magnet to a Alnico V to give it a modern edge and feel that many of today’s players desire!

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 V magnets for that perfect rock feel!

The alnico V magnets ensure the edge you are looking for without compromising vintage feel, dynamics or tone.

Made with:

  • Enamel wire
  • Alnico V magnets
  • All mounting hardware included
  • Output approx.: 7.9-8.1k @ Neck
  • Output approx.: 9.5k @ Bridge
  • Wax Potted
  • Hand made to order in the USA

Truly a Legacy!

Purchased a set of Legacy Humbuckers for my Agile AL 2000 LP copy and these babies really made this guitar sound like a million bucks. Just the right amount of bite, clarity and tone for All styles.

Legacy Bridge

Great pickup. These are as good as or better than my Bare Knuckle Pickups, at half the price. I'm quite impressed. It gave me the percussive attack I was looking for in my metal rhythm tone. Plenty of paf-like openness and dynamic responsiveness. There's a certain scratchy, earthy sound that happens at the pick attack that I dont remember being there before. I like it. Gives each note character and a bit of snarl.

Excellent vintage style pickup!

I have been on a 13 year quest for the right pickup for my Epiphone SG, I've tried p90's, and multiple flavors of PAF style pickups that were overwound to varying degrees. I decided that maybe I have been looking at things wrong and needed to go for something more vintage wound and the folks here at Planet Tone recommended the Legacy HB for the kind of music (AC/DC & Hard Rock) that I use my SG for. They were so right, the muddiness was gone, replaced by lots of dynamics and clarity with a crisp but not lacking in bass low end. I will likely replace the neck pickup with a Legacy HB at some point as well. Great job, Planet Tone!
