Extreme versatility for everything from vintage to heavy tones out of your Stratocaster.

The Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set derives its versatility from the fact that these single coil pickups are hum-cancelling. Included in the set are a Seymour Duncan SJBJ-1b JB Jr. for the bridge with a Seymour Duncan SDBR-1n Duckbucker in the middle, and a Seymour Duncan SL59-1n Little '59 for the neck. The Duncan Everything Axe pickup set works great for any style of music.

        Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

        i've been playing for almost 40 years. last 35 all acoustic. hadn't played electric since college.

        then...

        my son goes off to college and i inheret his squire standard strat which he played maybe twice. (also his practice amp whose upgrade is for another forum). its a suprisingly playable axe...the maple neck has excellent uniform grain, the body is HEAVY (agathis i think?) with remarkable sustain. the pickups had a sorta decent strat twang but were noisy and hollow. i researched the SD's and went with the everything axe set including pickguard, switch, jack and pots. there was no soldering needed as there is a screw-down terminal block. the input simply gets connected and you're good to go.

        it was tricky getting the pickup height balanced so i took it to the local guru and now its sweet as honey from the bee. the little 59 is fat and soulful, the duckbucker tight and crisp, the JB jr like a buzzsaw. the 2 and 4 positions provide incredible versatility. i find myself lost in any one position/combination for hours. there is so much to discover in these pick ups. glassy cleans with and without reverb sound amazing in any position. when overdriving them they are punchy and complex with lots of overtones.

        when i sell this squire i'll DEFINITELY remove the SD's to save for any future projects.

          Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

          When the stock pups in my Strat started getting muddy ( were old, 1995 standard MIMs) I knew it was time to replace them. Having a YJM Fury SD set in my other Strat, I went for the Everything Axe set for this one. I need one Strat with classic tones to offset my high output one. The Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Set is the ticket. The sound quality is amazing, clean and driven. The Lil '59 in the neck is clear and present, unlike the stock pups Fender puts in there. The JBJR hits the right mix of bucker and Strat tone that cuts right thru any lead with ease. The Duckbucker was the wildcard for me. Wasn't sure I was going to like it, but I am growing fonder of it with each practice. Bright, clear and with a tone that makes you want to use the middle pup more often. With each distinct pup you get a guitar with capability you never expected. I even coil split the bridge and neck for more options, and they work fine. Definitely worth the money to improve a great guitar.

          Make your strat mean!

          By kickoutthejams

          Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

          My setup is American Std Strat with Everything Axe Set pickups into a WayHuge Swollen Pickle Fuzz into a Fulltone Fatboost into a Vox AC30. Please understand this setup does not lend itself to a single coil strat into a Twin Reverb clean sound. But if you're looking for a fat strat sound that will achieve overdrive sounds you didn't think possible with a strat. This is it!
          My American Standard Strat single coils I felt were wimpy and too twangy for my taste. I wanted something beefier that could put out thick overdrive, and also well defined fuzz - jimi like tones...This pickup set will do it!

          The neck pu Lil 59 sounds more defined than a typical 59 in a LP. It's like the definition of a strat pickup combined with the fuller sound of an LP.

          The middle pu Duckbucker sounds like a typical single coil strat pickup without the 60 cycle hum. Use this when you want the vintage strat sound for blues.

          The bridge pu JB Jr absolutely screams. It is thick, full, and will cut through the mix as a lead pickup.
          I've had them installed for over a year now with nothing but attention getting face smacking tone! No function issues whatsoever. Also, a snap to install. Direct single coil replacement.
          3 pickups for $205 on Musicians Friend is a steal...

          Great Pickups

          Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

          Had these installed by my tech with a 5 way super switch so I could split the coils in position 2 & 4. That singing strat tone is still there in those positions and 1, 3 & 5 are FAT! I was worried about losing traditional strat tone and even though these pups do change the guitar's sound, it's not so different. It opens up so many more tonal characteristics of the guitar. Put em in and try em on low volume first. Nice. Then crank the volume and be prepared. Great pickups.

          Best choice for a hard-tail Strat

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

          I put these in my Amercian Standard Hardtail Strat and they are excellent. Much more versatile than the stock single coils and far less noise too. Nice, full clean sound (for a Strat) and more output for distortion settings. I luv 'em.

          Strat magic

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

          I installed this set in my American Standard Strat and I'm very happy with the results. The guitar is now extremely quiet; no hum or buzz at all. The volume and tone pots exhibit increased response. The guitar has a unique tone at each position on the 5-way switch. I love what they've done for my strat. The only negative for this package is that you can have any color you want as long as you want white.Help us out guys, offer the set in black and cream...please.

          Great Set Of Pickups

          By Fuzzy John

          from Howell, NJ

          Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

          I used these to replace the standard single coil pickups on my 2008 Mexican Strat. The originals sounded good but the 60 Hz hum was unbearable.The sound changed after installing the Everything Axe pickups but I cannot tell how much since I do not have any reference other than the memory. Even more so since at the same time I installed a Graph Teck Black Tusq XL nut and a set of Graph Tech Original String Saver saddles.These pickups sound good, really good and are really quiet. For now I have them set at 1/8". With time I will play some more with the height of the pickups and the pole pieces.

          Good product

          By Strungout-GeKJF

          from Florida

          Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

          I installed these on an my American Standard made in 2000. They have greatly expanded the range of the guitar. I can now play without a noise gate, and add a little more compressor as expected with humbuckers. I was looking for more gain on all three pickups and they came through as advertised. Beware though, the Little 59 is a drastic change from the single coil pickup. If you're into dirty blues you might want to look at other options. As stated in other reviews, they do require a fair time investment for setup, but well worth it. I am very pleased with the outcome. The new tone is much better than I expected. The JBJR rivals the Evolution in my Ibanez. The Duckbuckers and the Little 59 Have a good sweet, even, sustaining tone on all strings. The mechanical fit is near perfect. Definitly a worthwile investment.

          Excellent Pickups, Good Packaged Price!

          By bluesrider99-XN1X9

          from Southeast Connecticut, USA

          Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

          I bought a used Fernandes Strat copy from my local music store for around $100. As I loved the feel of the neck and the sound, I just couldn't pass it up. Before long, of course, I made some small improvements: new pots, pickup selector switch, and input jack. I wanted more versatility, as I already own a Fender Strat, so after a lot of comparing, reading, and listening, I bought and installed the Everything Axe pickup set.Does these pickups do everything? Of course not; not literally. But what it is supposed to do, it does great! I have no noise, humbucker sounds, and Strat sounds in positions 2 and 4. The volume and tone pots are MUCH more usable than my Fender, which is giving me ways to express my music in ways I couldn't before. I can get good tones in every genre I play: blues, rock, jazz, rockabilly, and swing. That's close enough to "everything" for me!I read that some folks had trouble adjusting the pickups so that the output level was matched. It took awhile to get that for me as well, but it isn't difficult; it just takes awhile--and with the end result being what it is, it was well worth the time.My only niggle is that you are limited to white. If you want black, you have to buy the pickups separately. If you want cream (which was my original color choice), well, you're hosed. White it is, then. I'm sure they'll yellow over they years like my Fender has, so in 15 years or so, they'll be fine.One more note: Be sure to check out Seymour Duncan's website for wiring schematics. They are very good and with the exception of not showing the ground connections, complete.Good luck, and keep jamming!
