The 59/Custom Hybrid is a medium output, gritty sounding humbucker that sparkles with upper midrange harmonic content. The brainchild of our incredibly knowledgeable forum members, this humbucker is the result of experimental coil swapping in order to push into new tonal territory. The mismatched coils, and the alnico 5 bar magnet keep the low end nice and tight, and give the mids a grind that is perfect for hard rock and metal. Plenty of crunch and bite on top as well. When split, you get the 59s 7k coil for a more distinct single coil sound. Pair with the 59 neck or Jazz neck model for a nicely balanced setup. Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the 59/Custom Hybrid uses mismatched coils, an alnico 5 bar magnet, nickel silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
Versatile blend of classic and modern tones. Recommended for blues, rock, pop, and classic rock.
Unique hybrid construction pairs a '59 screw coil with a Custom slug coil for crisp, clear highs, powerful lows, and a complex midrange growl.
Use in the bridge position with any vintage-output neck humbucker, such as the '59n or the Alnico II Pro.
For any well-balanced dual-humbucker guitar. Works equally well with maple and rosewood fingerboards.
A traditionally wired coil split yields the stronger Custom coil for a robust split tone. Available in nickel- or gold-plated versions. Also available in Trembucker spacing as the TB-16.
