  • Great pickups!!!!!

    As reviewed by JEREMY JACKSON on 10/26/2012

    I've got a set of these and a set of hot rodded and they're both great sets. The 59 set is more vintage sounding, great for blues and classic rock. I put these and the hot rod sets in my epiphone les pauls, so if your looking to improve your affordable guitar get some duncans.

  • Awesome!

    As reviewed by John Palasek on 1/12/2013

    I just installed a set of these '59's in my Epi LP Custom and all I can say is: "Wow!" The stock p'ups were OK and some friends who played my guitar said they sounded great but I always thought they were too thin and harsh and these '59's proved that in spades. The bottom end is stronger than before and the top end is more defined but I notice it most in the midrange. I love to play blues and jazz and the "scooped mids" of these '59's are spot on in that they define the midrange but don't do so at the expense of the highs and lows. Everything sounds balanced now and the "thinness" on the first and second strings is gone. Now they cut through nicely and don't sound "twangy" like they used to. Originally, I was trying to decide between between the '59's and the Hot Rods, but after comparing the two at Seymour Duncan's website, I was sold on the '59's. The SH-1's are balanced and are moderate output while the Hot Rods (SH-4 & SH-2) were high output and DID sound hot (for my taste) compared to the 59's. I am so glad I went with the 59's because they give me exactly the sound I was looking for and are SO much better than what I had before!

  • Love These Pickups!

    As reviewed by John Palasek on 1/23/2013

    I finally got around to changing the pups in my Epi LP Custom and man, am I glad I did! These pickups are Awesome! The stock pups were actually not so bad and many who have heard or played my guitar have said as much. But to me they were to thin and had way too much midrange for my taste. I play Blues, Jazz, some Funk with a touch of Classic Rock now and then and I wanted a warmer tone with less mids and these 59's are perfect! I actually went to the Seymour Duncan website and used their comparison gadgets where I could hear the basic differences between various pickups. I wasn't sure about whether I wanted to go with the 59's or with a Hot Rodded set. But when I compared them side-by-side on the website, I could instantly tell that the Hot Rods would be a bit too brassy for me and so I went with the 59's. The "scooped mids" are exactly what I was looking for because now my guitar sounds much more balanced. The bass is more solid and the treble is clearer while the mids are smooth in between. In "crunch mode", these pups really offer that classic Gibson sound - lots of grit, great definition but not overpowering or ear-splitting. The 59's may not be an ideal choice for shredding Metal, but for what I want they're ideal. The only knock on these pups is that the neck pickup can sound a bit "boomy" when played clean, but that's easily fixed with a few minor tone adjustments and then it's perfect and crystal clear. All in all, I'd highly recommend these Seymour Duncan 59's to anyone looking for a classic sound with a rich and balanced tone.
