Plus, it's a direct replacement for single coils. With an even, dynamic response and adjustable pole pieces, it allows the guitarist to fine tune the string balance and dial in just the right amount of punch. A whole set of Little '59s will deliver a rich, open sound; or a bridge Little '59 matched up with Duckbuckers in the neck and middle will provide a best-of-both-worlds '59 Les Paul and '57 Strat tone.

The neck has always been my favorite position , I love warmer tones... I did lose some chime and bell tones with the Little 59' but man... this pickup has a lot of balls. Very nice output, very nice cleans and best of all, it takes all my pedals like a champ... super smooth and amazing fuzz, overdrive or distortion... as promised the duckbucker gives me the strat tones from position 3 and down... position 4 sound similar to the 5th but with more high end sparkle...
I was impressed by this pickup and I'm still getting used to it and experimenting. But it definitely feels like the best of both worlds... I was ready to start using my Les Paul, even though I was missing the whammy bar, but now I basically have a Les Paul on the neck and a strat on the lower positions and I can still use the tremolo arm even on the 59 Les Paul position ;)
Overall I think it would be extremely difficult to not like/love this pickup... like I said, I did lose low end sparkle and chime... so it definitely does not sound like a Single Coil... but it's silent and has all the qualities of a Humbucker... I no longer have the Gilmour Setup, but that's a good thing... my guitar now looks a bit different, changed a few knobs to black... and now it sounds completaly different. I am stoked and can't wait to record and hear how it sounds!
So only one small issue taking away the 5th star, I use the 59er most often on volume 6, 7, or 8 for the best sound. My other pickups don't have the same problem, so I can't say this 59er is perfect on the Mexican strat in a neck position. I still love it, but 4/5 stars.
This brings us to this pup...the lil' 59. This is a very well rounded pup. I can get a nice chunky set of chord progressions out of it, and soloing it will hang onto the high mids while staying just above muddy on the bottom end. While it lacks the "glass" of the demon, it still has a somewhat sweet high end. Of the three pups...this is the one to go clean with.....but it plays well dirty too.
My 3 Duncan set-ups look like this:
Screamin Demon bridge, Lil' 59 neck in a MIJ (86 JV) Squire,
JB in the bridge, JB JR. neck of a 2000 Standard Strat
and a Custom Custom in the Bridge, and Lil' Demon neck of the 1982 Strat.
All 3 of these guitars are tonally very similar... with alder bodies and rosewood fret boards, and all 3 are upgraded with an unbleached bone nut. I think they make a decent base for comparison of pups. (these are the Duncan set-ups. These 3 guitars only have two pups. The other strats have all 3....the texas special set up in two, and a lace neck and mid, texas hot antiquity bridge set up in one, and the abby's (AY)that came in my custom shop.)
The bottom line is that if you use these in the neck of a 3 pup strat you lose the sweet spot in the 4(th click toward neck) selector position. It has a very different sound used in conjunction with a middle single coil. But different is not bad.....because this pup will flat out howl if you let it.

Take it from a pro. The tone? Where do we begin? Sweet? Not even close to a quarter of it. However, a sweet quarter close to it it is better than 360 degrees that is sour.
So what about the sound? It sounds just like a regular sized 59-style Humbucker, so don't worry about that.
With the regular wiring setup on a strat you obviously can't vary the tone of the bridge pickup. So I changed mine to have just one master tone (a TBX to be exact, which I highly recommend) and you can get all the sounds you want.
