These 59 Crosspoints are design to give the exact 59 style earthy rocksound that the guitarists of the end Sixties and Seventies pulled out of their 59er Les Pauls. built like the originals and unpotted but still very feedback resistant. The 59 CrossPoint is a unique combination of the Classic series with a nice moderate neck pickup equipped with AlNiCo II (not as clear as Classic Standard and not as crunchy as Classic Rock). The bridge pickup of the 59 CrossPoint is moderately overwound and equipped with an AlNiCo V magnet. This combination makes it a powerful pickup but still with P.A.F. characteristics. neck pickup: Alnico II, 7,7 kΩ , with creamy, but defined tone, bridge pickup 8,6 kΩ , more powerful and slightly overwound PAF, will tickle your amp! All „59 CrossPoint“ Pickups are hand wound and are delivered with serial number and COA. Pickup rings not included.Wolfgang Damm is the man behind Amber pickups. This guy really knows his pickups…As a reference: He helped to develop the P 94 pickup for Gibson – you know, this P 90 with a humbucker format. In my humble opnion Wolfgang makes one of the best lines of pickups available today! His vintage strat and 58-59 Burst style Humbuckers are seen as the best available vintage replacement pups at the moment!
