  • Simply Awesome!!!

    As reviewed by Ron Goebel on 8/29/2011

    I am definitely a Seymour Duncan user for life. I first bought a '59 and a JB set back in 1986 for my 1972 Gibson SG Deluxe guitar. What an awesome set for this guitar. About a year ago I put the original '57's back in the SG and put the SD's in my Epiphone Dot. WOW! What a difference that made. The 335 dot sounds outstanding! Well I just bought a set of these '59's for my Les Paul on Sunday and they sound way better than the Burstbuckers that came with the guitar. The BB's sounded muddy with distortion and tinny when clean. Very brittle and sterile sounding. I went with the Vintage Blues set over the Hot Rodded set because I wanted the PAF sound for this guitar. They are very articulate and as they say have that buttery chunky sound. Great strong lows, nice mids and highs. Very balanced across the whole spectrum of sound. Clear weather clean or distorted. Absolutely beautiful pickups. Seymour Duncan pickups have always been my go to choice since that 1st set I purchased in 1986. I have had numerous guitars in the past and only named a few here that I have put SD's in. A few of my other guitars also got replaced with SD's. Try them and you will never go back. These definately sound good in my studio and can't wait to play them out next weekend. Great job again Seymour Duncan! Keep it up!

  • Great pickups!!!!!

    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!
