Seymour Duncan SH-15 Alternative 8
Seymour Duncan presents the SH-15 Alternative 8, a humbucker that happens to be the brand's first ever production pickup to use an Alnico 8 magnet.
The Alternative 8 starts with hot coils wound for maximum output. With the addition of the Alnico 8 magnet, the output is enhanced with a punchy sound, full of fat mids and present upper-mids. This is a dynamic pickup that doesn't get "sizzly" or dark. The Alnico 8 fits all rock styles, and works especially well when used with high gain amps.
The Alternative 8 is recommended for use in the bridge position, and is available uncovered, with gold or nickel covers, and in Trembucker spacing. It seems to match best with a moderate output neck pickup like the SH-1n '59 or the SH-2n Jazz Model.
The SH-15 is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance. Mounting hardware (screws and springs) is included as is a detailed wiring diagram. It is hand-built in Duncan's Santa Barbara, California factory.
