SeymourDuncan SH-18s Whole Lotta Humbucker Black Set (Bridge & Neck)
Inhis youth, Seymour Duncan spent time in London and aided fellow youngguitar players with defining their sound through pickups. This wouldn'tbe much of a story if one of these lads didn't go on to change theworld! Seymour's special rewound PAFs went into a Les Paul and captureda sound that blasted through a Marshall stack and into history. Thesesame pickups are now available as the Whole Lotta Humbucker.
Therecipe for these pickups starts with a rough cast Alnico 5 magnet,plain enamel wire, and Seymour's unique wind pattern. The bridge is ahotter-than-vintage 8.78k DC resistance and the neck is similarly beefyat 8.20k. Tonally, the rough cast magnets add warmth and balancednote-to-note clarity so everything sounds bigger. What is sonicallyunique about the Whole Lotta Humbucker pickups is the way that theypush your amp and add a very slight natural compression and sustain toyour playing
