« Benchmark neck pickup »

Publié le 07/16/11 à 12:43
Seymour Duncans are put in tons of guitars from many different companies but the most popular combination is the Jb in the bridge with the 59 in the neck. The 59 is probably their most popular neck pickup because of this. The 59 is a great modern day PAF pickup. And the PAF qualities is what people want in the neck position of their guitars. The pickup features four conductor wiring like most every modern pickup and an alnico 5 magnet. With this vintage design you get super smooth lead tones when used in the neck position on a high gain setup. The low end on the pickup is super smooth and the high end is clear but not harsh. It has some high end spank and crispness but it does not overpower the strong mid and lows that this pickup puts out. This really gives the pickup the ideal tone for neck position lead playing. Since this is based off a PAF it naturally goes well in Les Paul style guitars. The fat tone of the Les Paul with the fat tone of the 59 gives you a super fat super smooth tone where ever it is. The notes ring out like crazy but never sound harsh. They have a fat open sound that everyone wants from a good neck position pickup. They can also work well in guitars that arent as dark in mahogany. In a brighter guitar this pickup in the neck can help level out the high end and give you a fatter tone. This pickup is the jack of all traits when it comes to the neck position. There is not much more you could ask from a pickup in the neck position. Its smooth without being muddy and clear without being harsh. This should be on everyones short list when they are looking for a neck pickup.
