Seymour Duncan ST59-1B Little '59 Telecaster
(Originally written by S0948/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
I've been using it for three years with my 'home-made' Strat. In bridge position, it works very well with SSL1-like single-coils because its output level is not too high for a well-balanced guitar signal. Nevertheless, its low frequency response is too weak for a Strat with stacked humbuckers, especially compared to hot rails pickups. Its name ("little 59") is a bit confusing since it has neither the output level nor the low-end response of a '59. As a summary, use it only with single coils in center and neck positions.

Seymour Duncan ST59-1B Little '59 Telecaster
I got it on a guitar bought from OCCAZ 4 years ago.
It was installed by former owner who had no real humbucker and therefore put it. A little weird at first, then the display used to it (see photo).

For my game I found it very suitable microphone. The clean sound is interesting, just as I love vintage but still a mat. In disto it makes me think of the solos can be heard in Megadeth.

After a simple guitar pickups, more "Fenderienne" In short, the sound must be radically different. Those making more wood snapping high frequencies, I doubt it keeps the grain a bit soft.

For my use of metalheads it suits me perfectly.
