"...if you want to get as close as possible to vintage Gibson humbucker tone, the ’59 PAF Clones are a great way to go." -Guitar Player Magazine, May 2014


The 59' "Patent Applied For" Clones are for the tone purist. Authentic to every detail using all American made parts. 1959 spec butyrate bobbins, 1959 spec long leg frame, custom vintage spec plain enamel wire, custom alnico 4 cast magnets, maple spacer, vintage spec screws, and vintage spec slugs.

These are very clear and warm with lots of single note articulation. The upper frequency range has exceptional bloom and lots of airy tone with the un-potted coils. We meticulously wound each coil with our own pattern and offset to represent what we believe to be the best vintage P.A.F. examples out there.

Stock with vintage single conductor external braided leads and 49.2mm string spacing just like the originals. Un-potted coils.

Restored faith in my guitar with 59 clones.

by whittele -

I put a set in a 2016 LP DC Standard. I loved everything about that guitar except the pickups. Now I just love it all. The neck pickup is articulate yet present without the typical neck pickup boominess. Souind great on all three channels of my Boogie MKIV. The Bride pickup has the proper "honk" without being brittle or thin. Together the pickups are very complimentary and cut through nicely. This is the third set of 59 clones and I just keep coming back.

A warm, beautiful, and musical pickup.

by Gunnar Oberheim -

I put a set of these '59 Clones in my 1998 Les Paul Standard - which some people often asked if it had been a Custom Shop - and after 30 years of messing around, I have an incredible-sounding guitar, I honestly can not imagine finding anything better sounding. And yes, I've tried more pickups down through the years than I care to think about in terms of money thrown away as regards selling them afterward. Try 'em, I doubt you'll be disappointed. Us old dogs know a thing or two.
