  • Seymour Duncan AHB-1B Blackouts Bridge

    Seymour Duncan AHB-1B Blackouts Bridge - "Alternative to the EMG 81"

    11/20/11

    The Seymour Duncan Blackouts are a new beast in the active pickup market. This is the main bridge pickup of all the Blackouts. This pickup takes aim at the iconic EMG 81. This pickup like the 81 is an active pickup. This means that you need a battery…

  • DiMarzio DP117 HS-3

    DiMarzio DP117 HS-3 - "The Former Yngwie signature pickup"

    11/20/11

    For a long time this is the pickup you went to if you were looking for a Yngwie sound. This is the Dimarzio stacked single coil formerly used by Yngwie malmsteen. Since it is stacked single coil that means it is noiseless since it is technically a hu…

  • Seymour Duncan Hot Rodded Humbucker SH-4 and SH-2 Set

    Seymour Duncan Hot Rodded Humbucker SH-4 and SH-2 Set - "Vintage look and all around tone"

    11/20/11

    This is the Seymour Duncan SH-4 Zebra pickup. I think its cool that they put out their popular pickups with different colored bobbins so you can get a different look for your guitar. The Zebra bobbins on this pickup give it a real 70s look and they l…

  • Seymour Duncan STK-S10 YJM Fury

    Seymour Duncan STK-S10 YJM Fury - "The new Yngwie pickup"

    11/20/11

    The Seymour Duncan STK-S10 YJM FURY is the new Yngwie Malmsteen signature pickup set from Seymour Duncan. Yngwie used Dimarzio pickups for a long time but has just recently switched to the Seymour Duncans. Although its a different company the pickups…

  • GFS Vintage 59

    GFS Vintage 59 - "Not a bad vintage sounding humbucker."

    11/19/11

    The Vintage 59 Humbucker from GFS is a slight step down from their Fat Pat’s in my book, and also a slight step up in cost. They use a variety of cover colors so finding a classy looking match to your guitar isn’t a problem. They use Alnico V magne…

  • GFS Fat Paf

    GFS Fat Paf - "Nice sounding PAF"

    11/19/11

    The Alnico Fat Pat “Boutique” humbucker is my favorite humbucker by the relatively unknown GFS pickup company yet. They say it adds “meat” to your sound, and it does have a very good low end to it without being too bassy or thuddy. The high end of…

  • GFS Dream 180

    GFS Dream 180 - "Average sounding, Low output."

    11/19/11

    The Dream 180 is a vintage voiced humbucker from GFS. They are available in different colors (black, gold, chrome) but mine is the gold version and I put it in a PRS styled guitar with a wrap around bridge and mahogany body. It is a very sweet look…

  • Seymour Duncan TB-4 JB Model

    Seymour Duncan TB-4 JB Model - "Not for me"

    11/10/11

    The JB seems to be one of the more polarizing pickups out there. People who like it seems to be crazy about it and people that don't like it seems to abhor it. Personally, I fall more towards the latter category. I hated almost everything about th…

  • Seymour Duncan SH-1N '59 Model Neck

    Seymour Duncan SH-1N '59 Model Neck - "My favorite neck pickup"

    11/10/11

    Hands down this is my favorite neck pickup. I would go so far as to challenge people to find something it can't do. Its sound great for any thing I have tried using it for. Super versatile with an awesome warm tone. I love it. The clean tones are …

  • Seymour Duncan TB-5 Duncan Custom

    Seymour Duncan TB-5 Duncan Custom - "One of my Favorites."

    11/10/11

    I had been looking for a new pickup for my Edwards LP, since I'm not a fan of the Duncan JB that it came with. I tried a couple different pickups but as soon as I put the Duncan Custom in it I knew it was the right one. I just nailed everything I was…
