This Seymour Duncan pickup is a faithful replica of the great old 1959 'Patent Applied For' humbucker. The tone is smooth and warm. Sustain is plentiful. The same kind of Alnico magnets, plain enameled wire, braided single-conductor hookup cable, nickel plated studs, wooden spacer, black paper tape, and balanced coil windings that were used on the originals are used here on the '59. Even the square pin hole with the distinctive 'Patent Applied For' recessed molding ring on the top of the bobbin is included. The neck and bridge models are individually calibrated for an even volume balance. The bridge packs a little extra punch and the neck is warm with just the right amount of bass.
Review By: Denis Rating: 5 - Excellent Product: Lorenzo L449 Electro Acoustic Guitar Review: Bought this after a mate recommended the dreadnought version. Firstly quick dispatch and delivery was superb. As for the guitar itself, all the good reviews and awards are well deserved, plays and sounds as good as guitars costing a multiple of the price, only minor gripe is the action is a tiny bit on the high side but I can amend that easily enough myself. The simplicity of this guitar actually is quite appealing when you see it for real, and the satin finish 'feels' great especially on the neck. The built in preamp with EQ also is to be commended, very clear and sweet sounding. This guitar really is a bargain, its recent placing in Guitar & Bass magazines Top 20 pieces of gear is well deserved. Date: 02/08/2011
