SH-1: Reincarnation of a Classic

The Seymour Duncan '59 Model SH-1 humbucking pickup is Seymour Duncan's take on the classic Seth Lover PAF (Patent Applied For) humbucker found on the Gibson's iconic late-1950s Les Paul. The SH-1 sports plain enamel wire, a long-legged bottom plate, 4-conductor cable, and the absence of a Seymour Duncan logo. This vintage re-creation serves up a slightly more scooped midrange than the Seth Lover model and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance. For flexible tones with vintage flair, the Duncan '59 Model SH-1 is a perfect fit.

Seymour Duncan '59 Model SH-1 at a Glance:
  • Vintage look and sound
  • A complete tone monster setup
  • Trust your tone to Seymour Duncan
Vintage look and sound

The '59 Model SH-1 provides a late-'50s, vintage-correct, humbucker sound with warm and crystalline clean tones. Full and bright distorted tones with smooth sustain are available from this classic-style pickup. Classic appointments include plain enamel wire, long legged bottom plate, but this version includes 4-conductor cable, to give you modern flexibility in your wiring configuration.

A complete tone monster setup

Available in both neck and bridge models, a '59 neck is often used together with a hotter bridge pickup like the SH-4 JB or SH-13 Dimebucker for maximum tonal versatility. Best used with balanced and warm-sounding instruments, the '59 Model SH-1 works especially well with mahogany bodies and rosewood fingerboards.

Trust your tone to Seymour Duncan

Quite simply, it all boils down to tone. Seymour Duncan has spent the majority of his life refining the art of creating pickups. Seymour Duncan is dedicated to getting the best tone possible from his pickups, from modern metal monsters to faithful reproductions of gems from the '50s and '60s. We know tone is important to you - which is why we choose to carry Seymour Duncan pickups. With the massive amount of pickups available from Seymour Duncan, you're certain to find the sound you've been looking for.

SD SH-1n '59

Place this in my Epiphone Dot and right away I could hear the difference.... Awesome decision. My sales Zach was outstanding in the process!!!!

I love these Duncan 59’s!

I replaced the muddy undefined pickups in an old Epiphone Les Paul with these and now it sounds great. They’re articulate and bright without being brittle, they’re warm and buttery if you roll the tone back a bit. The neck and bridge are well matched and complement each other well. I spent a lot of time watching demos of various pickups online and I’m happy to say these 59s perfectly suit my purpose and I couldn’t be happier with them.

BIG difference

bought a very cool Epi ES 335 Pro and although the stock pickups are 'ok', replacing them is always a good idea. put the SD 59 in the neck and a Gibson BB2 in the bridge. fantastic change. full of tone and volume. the combo of the 2 make a good guitar a great guitar.
Music background: a pretty good has been and a decent wanna be again

Nice Pickup

Clean, clear, and full bodied. This pickup doesn't get in the way of your guitar or amp's tone.
Music background: 40 years recording and playing live
