Seymour Duncan Pickups - It's all about tone!

With the SL59-1 Little '59, Seymour Duncan lets Strat players add the classic P.A.F. humbucker sound to their tonal arsenal. The SL59-1 Little '59fits perfectly into existing single-coil Stratocaster pickguards with no need for modification. The resulting sound is the same humbucker tone that has made the P.A.F. the standard by which other humbuckers are judged. The polepieces are adjustable, allowing you to get your tone just right, as well as adjusting the balance from string to string. P.A.F. sound in a single-coil: the SL59-1 Little '59!

Seymour Duncan SL59-1 Little '59 at a Glance:
  • Sound
  • Complete setup

The SL59-1 Little '59 P.A.F.-voiced single-coil-sized humbucker is great for country, jazz, blues, funk, classic rock and heavy rock. This little brute was designed to impart the warm, smooth tone of an old Patent Applied For humbucker in a direct replacement, single-coil size. It possesses an even, dynamic response, and its adjustable pole pieces allow the guitarist to fine tune the string balance and dial in just the right amount of punch. Compared to the JB Jr., it has less output and more upper-mids. The SL59-1 Little '59 comes with four-conductor hookup cable.

Complete setup
Available for both bridge and neck/middle positions, the SL59-1 Little '59 is a good match in all well-balanced instruments, and works equally well with maple and rosewood fingerboards.

Seymour Duncan Little '59 Bridge Pickup

I order this to be used as a middle pickup for my Ibanez RG along with a JB for the bridge and an SH-2 for the neck. I'm absolutely blown away by the combination!This pickup is a great mini-PAF that sounds awesome in general. My favorite uses for it are for mid-gain, crunchy kind of sound. Sort of that classic SRV or Les Paul type of tone. Does both natural and pinch harmonics surprisingly well, too (Even in the middle position). Phenomenal Pickup in general.As I've said a million times, you can't beat Sweetwater's service, too. Great prices, great guys, and great deals. Go for it!

Seymour Duncan SL59-1 Little '59 Bridge Pickup

this is absolutely the BEST single coil sized humbucker I've ever heard! It makes my amp sing and really brings out that tube tone I've been searching for. Very defined, can hear every note in a full chord with heavy overdrive distortion. Strong and powerful sounding, yet maintains loads of character and articulation. Totally in love with the sound of this awesome pickup!

Little 59 after time

This pickup is loud, the sound is clear and no noise when the strings are not moving. Punchy chills and cuts in when needed. The guys at Sweetwater help me getting the best sound. (Capacitors, switches, etc..) Try it. I use it for solo's in blues.
