Classic 50s - Vintage pickups for a modern world

The Classic 50s deluxe edition has finally arrived! These pickups are the next stage in the development of our hugely successful “original” Classic 50s.

In the process of creating the updated Classic 50s, we’ve tried to keep the name in mind, but without actually letting it pigeon hole us in the design! With that at front of our thoughts, we’ve come up with something that’s a little more modern tonally, a little more suited to to giving you the tone you’d expect from a 1950s pickup, but with that bit more range, that little more presence, that touch more “usability” in a 21st century setting.

5 of 5 Alnico 2 version June 11, 2019
Reviewer: Adam Richards  
the classic fifties deluxe as a bridge is a soft and almost wooly sounding pickup (in a good way of course). It sounds very reminiscent of the Paul Kossoff sound or a very modern Bonamassa style lead tone (where he rolls back the tone to take away the bite). Very nice for a very traditional classic rock sound.

5 of 5 Absolutely Amazing June 11, 2019
I had them put on an Ibanez Art Core and the "personality" of the guitar completely changed. It's a terrific set that I would recommend to anybody who wants to get more "bluesy sounds" out of his guitar. Very versatile and vintage sound indeed that doesn't cost a fortune.
No more money spent on "big name" or boutique humbuckers!!
Congratulations guys!

5 of 5 That perfect well defined smooth lead sound... June 11, 2019
Reviewer: Sébastien Chassot from Bossonnens, Fribourg Switzerland  
Have it as bridge pickup (With Alnico 2!) on a custom Bugnon build, paired with a Lollar Goldfoil in the neck position. Amazing pickup. Low output with excellent definition and perfect balance. Nice mids kind of focus, singing and articulate smooth highs, great pick sensibility. Love it.

5 of 5 SmoooooTh June 11, 2019
Reviewer: Andrew Conner from Hessle, East Yorkshire United Kingdom  
Bought a neck pickup (a2 magnet)  as i was putting together an Andy Summers style Telecaster from a standard Tele. This pickup has a lovely smooth warm tone. It is not a Heavy Rock/Metal pickup as it is far too subtle. It just doesn't crunch when overdriving an amp. Its a very bluesy or even jazzy tone.  Very nice quality construction too. Love it.

5 of 5 Tele Neck Bucker May 22, 2015
Reviewer: Neil from UK  
Pickup arrived super fast!

Works well with the Heavy Heart in the bridge. The middle position switch tone is great and the neck on its own suits my needs, nice and bluesy but not muddy.

Overall nice sweet sound and not too high output, similar to my Stormy Mondays. The Tele is now a great gigging guitar which I will be able to take to cheaper gigs rather than my Gibson or fragile semi’s.
