I love the Seymour Duncan '59 Model SH-1 pickup. It's still open and articulate enough not to be muddy, but dark enough to sound mellow. Like so many others, I paired it with a JB in the bridge, and I enjoy that combination very much, they compliment each other quite nicely.
Installed this pickup in an Epiphone Les Paul Custom. Blew away the stock pickup.
Seymour Duncan '59 Model neck pickup
Replaced the neck pickup on my '78 Gibson "The Paul" with a SD '59 Model. It looks perfect in the guitar and sounds great clean or high gain. Slightly brighter than the original Gibson. Would consider bridge model in the future.
Seymour Duncan a Great choice!
It performs well. I built my own les paul, and this was a very good choice for the neck.. Now I need a cup or so of TALENT! PRACTICE PRACTICE and more PRACTICE!
