Summary
If the 59 Model bridge humbucker was twice as loud, it would be a Custom 5. Scooped mids, even bass & treble, and high output.

Description
Originally called the Custom Custom Custom this pickup began life in our Custom Shop from players requesting a brighter, alnico 5 version of the popular Custom Custom humbucker. It has a nice, full tone, a scooped midrange, and strikes a nice balance of bass & treble. This even reponse makes it extremely versatile and great for all types of music and playing styles. Match with the 59 neck or Jazz neck model for a perfectly balanced setup.Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the Custom 5 uses an alnico 5 bar magnet, nickel silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.

Output
DCR:14.1
Magnet:Alnico 5

Like it a lot - perfect in a warm LP
I like this pickup a lot because I tried it in my LP after using the regular Custom (ceramic magnet) and it was like a blanket was lifted off of my amps. It was a huge improvement over the Custom. I could get AC/DC type sounds and heavier. In a bright guitar this might be too bright. I'd recommend 250k volume pots instead of 500k for this type of pickup if it's too bright. In my all mahogany LP it was perfect. It's a hot pickup but still gives you classic rock tones, and it does it better than the Custom in my opinion.

And of course this pickup is a magnet swapper's dream. It sounds good with any kind of magnet.

good bridge position pickup
This pickup has lots of bite.  I find I like to roll down the tone knob when I use it.  This is not my favorite pickup ever... the cleans are a little lackluster.  But crank up the distortion and this is a really nice pickup!
