Our Classic 59’s are a faithful recreation of the old late 50’s P.A.F style humbucker. With these I pay homage to the pickup that kickstarted a rock and roll revolution. The PAF lent itself well to all musical styles but has it roots in rock and blues. The Classic 59's are and amazing choice either way you look at it. These guys are guaranteed to bring you back to the very roots of the humbucker tone.
Bobbins are made from Butyrate to PAF design specs
Wound with 42awg Plain Enamel wire
Output: Neck 7.4k, Bridge 8.2k
Spacing: Neck 49.2mm, Bridge 49.2mm
Magnet: Alnico 2 in Bridge position Alnico 4 in Neck. This provides amazing tonal blend and clarity when used together. It also clears up the neck very nicely.
Wax potting is not done to these pickups. Screws and springs supplied with pickups.
IMPORTANT: These are period correct builds, the baseplates are long leg and may not fit in all guitars without some minor modification to the instrument. Please be aware of this before ordering.
Had the classic 59’s installed and a set up and love what I hear. Beautiful tone and dynamics. Great looking too. Went with the original PAF covers. Highly recommend these pickups.
Great Pickups and fast service!!
The Classic 59’s were an excellent set of pickups for my Les Paul kit build. They sound great! You get all of the tones and responsiveness you would expect from PAF. Highly recommend if you are looking to get that classic PAF sound without breaking the bank. I can't wait to start my next Pegcity pickup powered project!
I had been debating if it would be worth it to upgrade the pickups in my Epiphone Les Paul Studio when an ad popped up for Pegcity Pickups. I emailed some questions to Kris (who was fantastic to deal with) and after some back and forth I opted for a set of Classic 59’s with alnico 2 magnets. They sound great with my blues junior w/ Cannabis Rex speaker and thrilled to finally get the tone I've been after. No chance that I would swap these out for anything else.
Hello Kris, I just got my guitar back and loving the new pups.
