Seymour Duncan SH-1N '59 Model Neck - Black
Seymour Duncan's SH-1N is the neck model of his take on Seth Lover's original design. Using many of the same basic components as the original it proves to be a faithful reproduction. I have this installed in the neck position of my '97 American alder Stratocaster. The pickup is a hum bucker and is capable of splitting into single coil mode. Mine is wired so in single coil mode it can be run in series or parallel.

The tone of this pickup is very satisfying to me. I usually find that neck pickups tend to be a bit harder to please me. The tone of this pickup seems to me to fall in between two worlds. It has just enough smooth syrupy feel while still being able to cut through without getting lost. In hum bucking mode it provides a lead sound smooth in nature while leaving enough high end response to still pull out some nice pick harmonics without loosing them or having them sound dull or weak. It has a nice throaty nature to it and speaks with authority. While not a high gain pickup its voicing provides a well balance slice through the mix.

In single coil mode it retains its smoothness but adds a nice open nature to the sound. I would not call it a faithful reproduction of a single coil sound however it is a very useable sound all the same. I would equate it more to a backed off hum bucker than to a true single coil in that respect. I find that it works better in this mode when coupled to the bridge pickup. Speaking of that in hum bucking mode it actually works very well with the bridge pickup unlike many other combinations I have tried over the years where instead of working together they fight each others characteristics. I have this paired with a Pearly Gates Plus.

This pickup is well worth its cost and will work well with most medium output bridge pickups. Its tone lives in a nice middle ground between thick and thin where many other choices seem to lean one way or the other. I consider this to be a sweet and juicy tone where I have it and would not break it from the pair I have now.

Seymour Duncan SH-1N '59 Model Neck - Black
The infamous duncan '59 pickup! One of the industry standards for guitar players today! A PAF-type yet with just enough output that you can do nearly anything with it! Most famously used as a neck pickup and it sounds great in most guitars! i've found the clean tone to be rather bassy, almost scooped sounding, yet clear and the highs come out clear enough without getting TOO muddy. Though it CAN get muddy if you're not careful. It's a scooped sort of sound but it's not shrill. It's got a very thick distortion, sounds amazing with single note leads and whatnot. Tracks quite well under high gain and fast shred-like speeds.

This is a good pickup that'll fatten up the low end on any guitar that's lacking it.I've used the 59 pickups in a few different guitars and have found it's good for neutral sounding guitars to balance out the neck a bit. Something like a mahogany bodied guitar. Though it can be quite tubby for some players also, maybe too boomy and whatnot as a neck pickup. I think this is a good pickup for those who wanting to fatten up their guitar and get something closer to old school PAF, les paul-type tones out of a neck pickup with more clarity than a regular stock LP pickup.

I give it an 8 for being a good aftermarket upgrade pickup. But it doesn't work for EVERY type of guitar, and is mainly for that thickish LP/PAF sound. It is good at what it does but is not completely versatile.

Seymour Duncan SH-1N '59 Model Neck - Black
The Seymour Duncan ’59 Neck model is probably one of the most popular pickups Seymour Duncan makes. It features slugs on one coil, adjustable pole pieces on the other, four conductor wiring and Alnico 5 magnet.

There are two main neck pickups that are generally considered in the Seymour Duncan lineup – the ’59 and the Jazz. Both of these models sound good, but there are some key differences that help make them unique. The ’59 is one of the most classic PAF clones on the market. It features a “tubey” low end, some scooped midrange and an extended treble range. The extra low end helps make this pickup sound pretty fat, but the low end isn’t super tight. It’s a more vintage style low end. The scooped midrange helps keep everything clear and allows the pickup to be a bit more open. The extended treble range on this gives it some sparkle, but it’s generally not so much that it’s overpowering.

I’ve used this pickup successfully in mahogany and decently in alder. In my mahogany guitar, it sounds absolutely wonderful. The notes bloom like crazy, it gets a very fat, “vowely” kinda sound, but it still remains clear. In my alder bodied guitar, however, the pickup is a bit too bright for my tastes. I’m not sure if it’s because of the wood, but it seems to have an almost single coil quality at times. For the record, yes, it’s working fine and isn’t split or being run in parallel. Speaking of that, this pickup sounds very nice both split and in parallel. Both deliver great, usable tones, unlike certain other pickups on the market.

If you’re looking for a neck pickup in the Seymour Duncan line, this is probably the one I’d recommend the most. It’s generally more popular than the Jazz, and I prefer it towards the two. Both deliver good tones, but this is my number one go-to full sized neck humbucker in the Duncan line.

Recensione di ejendres (content in English)"My favorite neck pickup"

Seymour Duncan SH-1N '59 Model Neck - Black
Hands down this is my favorite neck pickup. I would go so far as to challenge people to find something it can't do. Its sound great for any thing I have tried using it for. Super versatile with an awesome warm tone. I love it.

The clean tones are simply awesome. They are really nice and open. The tone is warm without being muddy, but it still retains this vocal high end. The high end is not sparkly like a Strat’s neck pickup; it has its own thing going on. Its this really sweet vintage style sound. I absolutely love it.

For crunch it NAILS the Les Paul tone in my head. It is warm but still very clear, with that sweet bite you hear on all the old school albums. It still very open sounding, even with a lot of gain. This leads to a ton of punchiness in single not runs, I love it. The perfect lead tone in my opinion. And its not only useful for lead work, I love how it sounds for groovy, single not staccato riffs on the lower strings.

With high gain it retains that sort of vintage feel, but still has the liquid smoothness you expect from high gain leads. The vintage feel stems from the openness I mentioned earlier. The lack of compression makes for much more dynamic lead tone, which I much prefer. So it is not the perfect modern high gain tone, but it is still really nice.

Overall I think this pickup is amazing. I cannot find a flaw in it, it is amazing. If you're looking for an extremely versatile neck pickup that just nails the vintage LP tone, run to the music store, buy a Duncan '59. If you want perfect, compressed, modern lead tone this might not be ideal for you. But for me, its perfect.
