Thank you very much--and that is, once I learned more about pickups including the Seth Lovers thru the years, what I concluded about the differences of those 2 Duncan models--thank you for confirming that to me.The Seth Lover is a great sound PAF with vintage look (cover) and AlNiCo II. Very accurate vintage sound. '59 is a bit brighter and has AlNiCo V and no cover.
I`ve read so many good things about the Seth Lovers thru the years. And yeah, once my friend finished installing the Duncan '59 Model' without the pickup cover, I asked him if he would put the T Top cover on it as I like 'that look' better.
And recently I had a friend re-install the T Top back into my SG so it`s 'historically correct'. These days I play a stock 2013 SG Std with the '57 Classic pickups--for me it`s a great guitar, very easy to play, & those pickups sound great I think & are really a popular pickup to match with a SG. Here`s a nice picture of it & also of my '70/`71 SG-
