What we say:
Seymour Duncan are perhaps the most famous brand of guitar pickups in the world. Since the 70s, Seymour and his team have hand built an ever-increasing range of premium pickups for electric guitar, bass and acoustic instruments.
Seymour Duncan use the best copper wire and magnets to create their pickups. Models range from recreations of vintage classics to, more often, original design pickups that bring a whole new world of sound tho the musician. All styles are catered for, from 50s pop to traditional Jazz right through to the most aggressive modern metal.
Changing pickups in your guitar is the quickest and most cost effective way to alter or upgrade your sound. Seymour Duncan will almost certainly have a pickup that’s perfect for you with a level of quality that’s unmatched.
Fiercely talented Country picker Jerry Donahue is a fan of the classic ’52 Tele sound. As we know, actual ’52 Telecasters are supremely expensive investments these days, hardly suitable to drag around on tour! Jerry needed that signature tone in a pickup that could be put into his touring guitars. This pickup represents Seymour Duncan’s recreation of that very tone.
This pickup uses an alnico II magnet for vintage authenticity. It also features, interestingly, raised pole pieces in the middle for the D and G strings. This is to reflect the curved fingerboard radius of vintage-style Teles! We like this level of thought-process!
This pickup delivers plenty of signature Tele twang with a sweet top end and plenty of focus. Fans of vintage tone will love this pickup!
