Harmonically rich hybrid humbucker that uses one coil from the 59 Model bridge and one coil from the higher output Duncan Custom model.
The 59/Custom Hybrid is a medium output, gritty sounding humbucker that sparkles with upper midrange harmonic content. The brainchild of our incredibly knowledgeable forum members, this humbucker is the result of experimental coil swapping in order to push into new tonal territory. The mismatched coils, and the alnico 5 bar magnet keep the low end nice and tight, and give the mids a grind that is perfect for hard rock and metal. Plenty of crunch and bite on top as well. When split, you get the Custom’s 7k coil for a more distinct single coil sound. Pair with the 59 neck or Jazz neck model for a nicely balanced setup. Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the 59/Custom Hybrid uses mismatched coils, an alnico 5 bar magnet, nickel silver short leg bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
