Seymour Duncan Distortion Mayhem Humbucker Pickup Set (SH6N and SH6B)

This set comes with 2 SH-6 Duncan Distortion humbuckers for the neck and bridge positions, along with the mounting hardware and wiring instructions.

Good news! -- Seymour Duncan has released their most popular pickup models in pre-matched sets, to take the guesswork out of determining which pickups work well together. Each matched set is targeted to a specific type of customer and their musical taste. Includes all necessary mounting hardware and wiring instructions.

The Distortion Mayhem Set includes a duo of SH-6 Duncan Distortion humbuckers for the neck and bridge positions. This is an aggressive youth-oriented set, which was designed for the heaviest punk, metal, and hardcore guitar tones.

Duncan believes these offerings will take the guesswork out of matching complete retrofit sets of guitar pickups. All of the pickups in the matched sets are hand built in Duncan's Santa Barbara, California workshop and include all necessary mounting hardware and wiring instructions.

I expect these pickups will be in the Les Paul as long as I own it. I don't see myself changing them. I will be adding a tap before to long to give more range and sound.

For the price of this set, you will not find any other pickups to touch them. Sharp clean sound wither using distortion or clean. I would recommend these to anyone wanting to wake up you sound with out going full on active. They are right under my ZW EMG's, not by much.

Only thing about these pickups has nothing to do with the pickups. Seymour Duncan needs to drop the slotted screws and go with a phillips or even cooler go to a socket head or torx head style. I know not everyone has the torx head, but for the look it would give and the 3 dollars at the local department store for one you can not complain much. The slotted screw does make it difficult to start the screws. But these pickups are hardcore awesome.

Ease of Use
These pickups are so responsive to sound you can breath on them and they pickup! They made my custom Les Paul I was building Scream. But what really shocked me I did not lose my Sweet Clean sound that I love with the Les. For the price of this set you will not find anything to touch them or I have not found any other brand that could.

I have always loved Seymour Duncan pickups. They are road tested and are some of the best you read more can buy.

Best price on the market. Will have another set for to long just in case I find another toy to put them in.

Manufacturer Support
I installed the pickups myself, just went with they wiring diagrams on the site and they had every style of wiring set up you could imagine. Way to go Seymour!!!!

The Wow Factor
It would be cool if they would do the same style pickups with the options of covered chrome, black outs, and etc... This set is in my opinion the best Seymour has out. Why not give options too.
