    Comments about Seymour Duncan PA-TB3B Blues Saraceno Trembucker Guitar Pickup:

    This pickup was designed by its namesake to basically work like Eddie's Frankenstein Kramer with the Slanted Gibson, but without the need for the slant; this is why it is called a "Trembucker." It is very much like the Gibson 498T. Lots of mid-range, great sustain, and true humbucker tone without too much bass. I bought this pickup just after it came out. Also called the parallel-axis humbucker (used by Micheal Sweet and Oz Fox of Stryper) it has great Gibson tone, for a Floyd Rose setup.

    too much wire

    Comments about Seymour Duncan PA-TB3B Blues Saraceno Trembucker Guitar Pickup:

    Great design GREAT sound - IF you can get it mounted. It take it the rest of you swabs are putting it under a plastic pickguard - under any humbucker mounting ring that I can find, the windings bulge out of the sides of the coils so much that you can't get it as close to the strings as it should be, resulting in a much weaker sound. Many points off.

    pretty good pickup

    Comments about Seymour Duncan PA-TB3B Blues Saraceno Trembucker Guitar Pickup:

    I heard the sample on sd's website, and I really like the centering on the mids. Not only that, but it packs a little more punch than a usual pickup.

    Comments about Seymour Duncan PA-TB3B Blues Saraceno Trembucker Guitar Pickup:

    Great pickup set. I have them on my custom hollow body Warmoth Tele. I wanted something very fat and warm, and got exactly what the doctor ordered. I'm in the process of building a new axe and won't hesitate to purchase another set.

    Great sounding pickup!

    Comments about Seymour Duncan PA-TB3B Blues Saraceno Trembucker Guitar Pickup:

    I've got a Blues Trembucker I recently installed in one guitar. I like it! I want another to put in another of my guitars! I prefer medium output, which this pickup is. It kinda strikes me as a "hot vintage" pickup. A nod to vintage tone, but higher output. Great for classic, moderate and hard rock.
