OVERVIEW

Ideal for brighter toned instruments, especially with maple and ebony fingerboards.

Designed jointly by Seymour and humbucker inventor, the late Seth Lover. Just like the original 1955 P.A.F.s, the SH-55 utilizes a nickel-silver cover and long-legged nickel-silver bottom plate, butyrate plastic bobbins, plain enamel wire, Alnico 2 bar, wooden spacer, and black paper tape. To be completely true to the original design and tone, the pickup is not wax potted. The tone is vintage P.A.F. The unpotted cover gives a slightly "honky" microphonic quality. Vintage-style single conductor cable standard.

The Seth Lover Humbucker Pickup Set is most commonly used in a neck and bridge set and can be used in the neck with an SH-11 Custom Custom (sold separately) for heavier rock sounds from the bridge position.

FEATURES
Not recommended for use with ultra high gain tube amplifiers over 50 watts
Vintage-style single cable

Comments about Seymour Duncan Seth Lover Humbucker Pickup Set:

I've played a lot of pickups, mostly in Gibson guitars. The Seth Lover's have that airy, slightly jangly, yet powerful tone that PAFs are known for. They sound incredible across all gain ranges. If you are about to install new pickups and looking at these definitely put them on your short list.

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Seth Lover Humbucker Pickup Set:

    I got the pickups for my Epi ES-175. I wanted fat clean jazz sound. The pickups are amazing producing sweet clean jazzy sound that inspires me to play. I have a few high-end guitars but this one is my favor at the moment. I usually play the neck pickup but the SD pickups sound great in any position: neck, middle, and bridge. The sound is pearl like: very rounded and clean. The pickups record fantastically with good amount of middle frequencies. The low frequencies produced by these pickups do not muddy the sound compared with other pickup brands. The high frequencies also sound great too, especially the bridge pickup that I plan to use more and more. I noticed that the pickups sound great without any pedals: good tube amp is enough to have a fantastic jazz sound. I am extremely happy with SD for producing the Seth Lover pickups, Thanks!
