"Best Seymour Duncan Pickup"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have used JB/Jazz and 59 combos in all my guitars. I decided to upgrade my Gibson SG 70's Tribute pickups and chose 59 neck and 59/custom in the bridge. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of 59s but needed some beef for a SG pickup. Holy snikes! this pickup is a beast and my new #1. Watch the SD video - it's the tone of a 59 with some cajones. Excellent growl with outstanding note articulation. Power chords have power and the highs are angelic with out that biting treble in most pickups of this magnitude. If you chose this pickup you will be in tone nirvana. Only negative is that I didn't use a split coil config.
