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.

  • Alnico II magnets
  • All mounting hardware included
  • Neck Output Approx 7.6-7.8k

PERFECT

tone is subjective. it's all in what each persons ear wants to hear. well these '59's are certainly what my ears want to hear. I put these in my '02 Goldtop & my 2000 LP Custom. both guitars had 490R & 498T pickups. ballsy, high output. the Planet Tone '59's are a calmer, sweeter more vintage output pickup. not muddy, good articulation, just such a great sounding choice for a Les Paul. I'm extremely happy.
