Seymour Duncan Pickups - It's all about the tone!
The ST59-1 is an interesting pickup, blending classic P.A.F. tones with a touch of traditional Tele twang for a tone that's all its own. As a direct replacement for the bridge pickup in a Tele, the ST59-1 lets Tele players thicken up their tone and go hum-free without modifying their guitar. The ST59-1 comes in black only to aesthetically match traditional Tele pickups. The ST59-1 doesn't abandon its Tele roots tone-wise, and works well with traditional Tele neck pickups. Take your Tele tone further with the ST59-1.
Seymour Duncan ST59-1 at a Glance:
- Complete setup
The ST59-1 is a P.A.F.-voiced single-coil-sized humbucker that's great for country, jazz, blues, funk, classic rock, and heavy rock. This lead pickup is a hybrid, designed for the Telecaster player who wants to rock. This little beast delivers a warm, smooth tone, reminiscent of an old '59 Patent Applied For humbucker mixed together with a healthy dose of beefed up twang. It comes in black only with four-conductor cable.
The ST59-1 is available in lead (bridge) position only, and matches up well with a Vintage Rhythm Stack for a totally quiet rig or with a Hot Rhythm for an all-around hot axe. The ST59-1 is perfect for all well-balanced instruments (particularly Teles!), and works equally well with maple and rosewood fingerboards.
