PRS 59/09 Treble Pickup

$199.00

Player's Perspective

Paul Reed Smith builds pickups the same way he builds guitars: He does a few decades of research, interviews a few dozen or so people, takes old designs apart, puts them back together, thinks, and finally comes up with a design and holds it to unrelenting, almost impractical standards of excellence. Then he figures out how to make it better. This 59/09 pickup is the result of such stratospheric standards. First released in 2009 and borrowing heavily from the best humbucking tone of 1959, this treble pickup is one of the clearest and most powerful bridge position humbuckers on the market. It's the perfect marriage of vintage and modern. Roll off your volume for warmer sounds or crank it for all that harmonically rich, soulful crunch. Mr. Smith recently visited our shop earlier this year and explained how the very same machine that was used to produce the wire for pickups in the 50's has been fired up. He is exclusively using this wire, being manufactured from the original PAF making machine, in these incredible new pickups! One of the best pickups on the market. Period.
