Seymour Duncan

Vintage Gibson® tone for your axe.

The Seymour Duncan SM1-N Vintage is a vintage-correct replica of classic Firebird® pickup. Great for jazz, blues, rockabilly, classic rock and heavy rock. The sound is somewhat of a tonal cross between a single-coil and a humbucker. They're brighter and livelier than a full-size humbucker with more "bell tone." The Alnico 5 magnet and moderate output coil windings make it an authentic tonal reproduction of the great sound of a classic Firebird®. Comes with vintage-style single-conductor hookup cable.

      Comments about Seymour Duncan SM1-N Vintage Mini Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup:

      I was looking for a Neck pup for my Tele that had a Warm Vintage Tone but with a bit of sparkle and spank when pushed. It is also very articulate and had great pick attack. This pup does it all and more.

        Comments about Seymour Duncan SM1-N Vintage Mini Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup:

        I paired this neck pup with a SD SM3b in the bridge of my Les Paul Special. Couldn't be happier! What a terrific combo in the LP Special. I've always loved the sound of Firebird pups, and this neck pup is pretty true to the original ones. It's warm and clear, but has a little edge to it too, especially when pushed. Sounds great clean or distorted. Every string and note is audible without messy blur, anywhere on the neck. Kills the old P-100s that came originally in the guitar. And way better than the boutique, hand-wound P-90s I tried in between. These SD pups are way more versatile than either of those pickup types.

        I highly recommend these pups for LP Specials, Deluxes and Firebirds. Significant upgrade, IMO.

        Plus, the value is tremendous since the price is way reasonable. Don't let the visible S logo on the covers scare you off. You'll get used to it quickly and I actually like hte way it looks and am as proud of the the quality as SD is, so the S logo is appropriate for all to know.

        Get this PUP for the neck and the companion SM3B for the bridge and you'll never look back. I've been playing gigs for 35+ years and can't remember being happier with a set of pups.

        I don't write many reviews, but just had to after experiencing these pups, just in case someone was on the fence or trying t decide between these or other, similar pickups. Get these, you'll be satisfied.

          Comments about Seymour Duncan SM1-N Vintage Mini Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup:

          Replaced the stock mini-HB in my Epiphone Alleykat and turned it into a first class stage instrument. Very clean to snarly, full of warm tones, will give you a first class blues sound very early in the volume roll. I installed it with a .22 tone cap to keep it on the bright side.

          Duncan Mini's

          Comments about Seymour Duncan SM1-N Vintage Mini Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup:

          I owned a Epiphone Firebird copy that had some hot but nasty sounding stock pickups. A buddy had a set of the minis and offered them to me. We installed them and they brought out that 'Fenderish' spank that a true Firebird exibits with the 'growl' of a humbucker. Great pickup.
          Surface wears/tarnishes. Doesn't hold up to acidic skin well.
          Gets the sound at a good price.
