Like a higher output '59 Model with a deeper bottom end and expanded output. Perfect for pop, country, blues, classic rock and heavy rock.
Developed by contributors to Seymour Duncan's web user group who replaced the ceramic or Alnico 2 magnet in an SH-5 Custom or SH-11 Custom Custom with an Alnico 5. Compared to the SH-5 and SH-11, the Custom 5's tone is more vintage, with less distortion, but it's still very strong and powerful. Clean sounds are rich and full with enhanced presence. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable. Recommended for bridge position. Often a Custom 5 is paired with a '59 for real-deal P.A.F. tones in the neck. For wider string spacing on tremolo bridges or post-1999 Gibson bridges.
