Much has been written about THE 1959 sound. But everyone agrees that there is no such thing as THE ’59 sound. So everyone has to decide for themselves which sound suits them and what they expect from a replica pickup like this.
So listen to our take on THE sound.

Our Classic 1959 uses a big Alnico IV magnet and the pickup comes without wax potting to get the full dynamics – just like in the olden days. The Alnico IV offers exactly the right mix of rich bass and clear treble of the Alnico II and V respectively.
Optionally, we also pot the pickup to minimise feedback on loud stages (or rehearsal rooms).

We deliver the pickup with braided wire as standard, but a 4-conducter cable can be ordered as an option. Just like the different covers or coil colours.


  • Rough cast Alnico IV magnets.
  • Handwound with 42 AWG Plain Enamel Wire
  • Vintage Spec Output: 7,1 kOhm, 3,7 Henry (N) | 7,6 kOhm, 4,2 Henry (B)
  • No wax potting to retain full dynamics, you can however, order them potted to reduce feedback


All pickups are hand-wound and are subject to certain variations. The manufacturing tolerance is +/- 3%. In addition, there may be tolerances in the DC resistance due to temperature fluctuations. All values refer to 20°C.  
As standard, we ship our pickups with DHL. Within Germany, this is free of shipping costs. For deliveries within and outside the EU, the shipping costs are calculated accordingly in the shopping cart. Customs and other import fees will be charged by your shipping service provider in the destination country. We have no influence on the amount and type of fees. The time for the production of the pickups is added to the delivery time. This usually takes 10-15 days, or longer for special requests. This will be communicated accordingly. As soon as your pickups are on their way, you will receive an email with a tracking number.
