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.

  • Enamel wire
  • Alnico II magnets

  • Neck Output Approx 8.1k

Everyone on the staff were great. Put a pair of 59 Specials in my 08 Epiphone LP Standard. It’s everything I had hoped for and more. They growl ! Gonna put something in my new Special. Just haven’t decided yet but they will be Planettone’s

59’ special set nickel chrome!Braided Cond.

We’ll balance set, It is everything that was promised and more.I have not played Pickups like these good at any price or Manufacturer. Holy Grail !! Is probably an understatement. The Harmonics and overtones will amaze even the most critical of players alike.Get a set before everyone finds out Planet Tone Pickups . Yours Sincerely Michael LaCanne Guitarist.

Best Bang for the Buck!

I was looking to upgrade my ceramic pups in my mid-priced Ibanez semi-hollow. Even used Duncans were out of my price range, so I started doing the research and found some forum discussions on Planet Tone. I explored various models, and after a quick email exchange with their staff, pulled the trigger on a set of 1959 Special Humbuckers (both neck and bridge positions). Took a little time to get the pups (may be the hand-winding process), but couldn't be happier with the tone, and installation was a breeze.
