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.

AWSOME !!!!!

I was in shock !!!!! This pickup sounds AWSOME!! I read so many reviews on this pup but i never tried it!! I have hotrails in two of my other USA strats n love them ! I 'm a high output guy n i was looking for that Old School Rock /Hard Rock/Metal sound. I tried a JBjr,STK-9b stacked humbucker n they just didnt cut it!! Seymour Duncan suggested the Lil'59 for the sound i wanted. The Lil'59 pushin 11k n hot rails pushin 16k. I called Sweetwater n ordered the Lil'59 !! It arrived n i installed it in my USA Standard Strat n WOW it sounded AMAZING!!!!! I got my decimal meter out to check the difference between the Lil'59 n the hotrails n i couldnt belive my eyes!!!! This pup was as loud as the Hotrails !!!!! I couldn't put my Strat down it sounded that good !! DO NOT PASS on this pickup GET IT!!!!!

Great pickup!

Great pickup if you are a session player who need lots variation of tone. The Clean tone is really bright and crystal clear - you have to adjust your treble knob if you use that 'classic' JCM900 tho. And for the solo playing although this pickup has mid output but it still get through with loud rhythm background.
