7-string version of our warm, versatile humbucker with a big PAF sound that is great for playing both big, rich chords and fat sounding leads.
While these vintage style coils give the 59 neck pickup an airy quality that keeps it planted firmly in the PAF family, the alnico 5 bar magnet, and vacuum wax potting have been added to accommodate lighter guitar strings and louder amplifiers than were ever used in the 50s. The result is a pickup with tons of old-school tonal character, but with a brighter top end, scooped mids, and a more compressed sound. Pair with the 59 bridge model for a traditional balance and sound, or pair with a higher output bridge model like the JB or Duncan Custom for a more aggressive setup.Hand made in Santa Barbara, CA, the 7-string 59 Model uses an alnico 5 bar magnet, nickel silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for extra wiring options, and is wax potted for squeal-free operation. Comes with a 7-string mounting ring.
