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

The SH-55 Seth Lover humbucker pickup set are the perfect choice for players wanting to transform a solid body or semi-hollow into a singing classic rock machine—nothing but blue sky.

The Seth Lover neck model gives you a smooth but articulate tone by striking the perfect balance of warm, full low end and a nice sweet treble. The Alnico 2 bar magnet helps to smooth the high-end response, while the vintage output coils bring out this pickup’s rich harmonic content. Single notes will have that perfect singing quality, and the unpotted nickel silver cover creates an almost piano-like tone and percussive feel.

The Seth Lover bridge model gives you that warm, airy, open tone by striking just the right balance of low-end warmth with a smooth but articulate top end. Chords will have a full, open sound, and single notes will have a soft yet articulate feel.

The Seth Lover vintage-output humbucker pickups are carefully hand built in Santa Barbara to Seth Lover’s original exacting specs. Seymour Duncan's butyrate bobbin molds are created by the same factory that built the original P.A.F. mold for Gibson. Other key features include Seymour Duncan's specially manufactured 42AWG plain enamel mag wire, nickel silver cover, 2.5" Alnico 2 bar magnet, custom-machined metal and maple spacers, and nickel silver bottom plate. The Seth Lover humbuckers come with vintage-correct single-conductor push-back braided lead wires.

Seymour Duncan wind every Seth Lover humbucker on Seymour’s original Leesona winding machine from the early Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, MI., for that unmistakable vintage tone and feel.


  • Not recommended for use with ultrahigh gain tube amplifiers over 50 watts
  • Vintage-style single cable
  • Calibrated set of faithful P.A.F.s built exactly the way Seth Lover intended for a smooth and sweet tone
