Having the Custom 5 (SH-14) as the longtime bridge humbucker in my PRS Standard 24, with a 59 Humbucker being a favourite in a Les Paul, I simply had to try this hybrid offering from Seymour Duncan.
59 screw side coil with thicker gauge wiring paired with a Custom slug side coils with thinner gauge …sounds a mismatch that could really bring out some complex overtones.
ALNICO V magnet
Measured DC –11.47K ohms
This required some magnet flipping in order to work with the PRS 5 way rotary switching
(in order to get the inner and outer coils to be north+ south combinations as well as other factors that will be explained in a more detailed post)
The 59/Custom Hybrid leans towards the upper midrange and brighter side (not as bright and spikey as a SD JB Model)
It works great with the PRS standard 24 (all mahogany) and to date, my favourite bridge position humbucker in this guitar.
Paired with another long time favourite, a Seymour Duncan Jazz Neck Humbucker, here are some different tonal options
