Order within 41 hrs 24 mins
Jointly designed by Seymour and humbucker inventer, the late Seth Lover, the SH-55 Seth Lover Model Neck Pickup is an ultra-authentic, Alnico 2, P.A.F.-type humbucker, which works great for country, jazz, blues and classic rock styles.
Ultra-Authentic Humbucker Design
The SH-55 was designed jointly by Seymour and humbucker inventor, the late Seth Lover. Just like the original 1955 P.A.F.s, the SH-55 uses a nickel silver cover and long-legged nickel silver bottom plate, butyrate plastic bobbins, Alnico 2 bar, plain enamel wire, wooden spacer, and black paper tape. The pickup is also not wax potted, to remain true to the original design and tone. The SH-55's unpotted cover provides a slightly "honky" microphonic quality to the tone. P.A.F. .
Works Great in a Pair
The SH-55 Seth Lover Model neck pickup pairs well with an SH-11 Custom Custom for heavier rock sounds from the bridge position.
Recommended for Brighter Toned Instruments
This pickup suits brighter toned instruments, especially with ones with maple and ebony fingerboards. It isn't recommended for use with ultra high gain tube amplifiers over 50 watts.
