The Eastman SB59/v Goldburst limited feature the wonderful Bare Knuckle Stormy Monday PAFs. This highly limited run was created for those players, who are looking for a little bit more low end than the regular Lollar Imperial PAFs. Whereas the original SB59/v design aimed at those looking for a lightweight open sounding single-cutaway, the Stormy Monday limited offers the more classic PAF sound, tight low end and just a bit more grit, without losing the clarity and open sound, which the SB59 has been known for since it came to the stage.
Tim Mills, CEO and Founder of Bare Knuckle pick ups says this about the Stormy Mondays: "As with the early 'Patent Applied For' (PAF) humbuckers, the coils are wound asymmetrically for extended frequency response and touch sensitive feel. The Stormy Monday faithfully reproduces the tones of the brighter '57 and '58 era PAFs with smooth natural sustain, wonderful pick dynamics and string separation. Low notes have warmth and fullness; the highs are sweet and mellow while the mids are slightly scooped producing a soft, percussive vintage tone."
