Seymour Duncan SH-1 Humbucker Pickup, Black



The 59 bridge model (SH-1b) is a vintage output humbucker that’s ideal for rock, blues, and more. Its vintage-inspired resistors give it an airy quality that’s firmly rooted in the family P.A.F., and the 5-bar alnico magnet and vacuum wax potting make it compatible with lighter guitar strings and louder amplifiers than those ever used in the 1950s. The result is a pickup with tons of old-school tonal character, but with a brighter top end and a slightly more compressed sound.

The 59 neck model (SH-1n) is one of our most popular pickups because it is so versatile. Like its bridge-position sibling, the ’59 neck is designed in the spirit of 1950s P.A.F. humbuckers, with smooth sustain, and a warm, full sound that still has a clear attack. We’ve made some improvements to slightly modernize the design and make it more adaptable to different styles. The top end is slightly boosted for improved attack clarity and the mids are hollowed out a bit for a smooth, open sound that’s great for preserving the clarity of individual notes in a chord. The ’59 neck was born to accompany the ’59 bridge, but countless players pair it with a high-output humbucker, like a JB or Custom. It’s also a popular choice for humbucker routed broadcasters.

Offered in standard humbucker and 6-string trembucker spacings, the ’59 model offers a variety of traditional vintage treatments, such as regular 42AWG enamel magnet wire, long-legged nickel-silver bottom plate, vintage single-strand braided spun lead wire, and no logo. If you opt for a four-conductor version for coil splitting, the 59’s single-coil mode is crystal clear. As with all of our P.A.F.-style pickups, the vintage 59 output humbucker is wound on Seymour’s classic Leymona 102 coiler from the old Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, MI. Also available for the neck and bridge in a passive 7-string configuration.
