Seymour Duncan Guitar Pickups are the very staple of todays cream de la cream of Guitar players. Guitarists all over the world strive for tone, that tone that sets you apart, that tone that makes your hair stand on end. The tone that inspires you and those around you. By chosing a Seymour Duncan product you are stepping into the realm of many Guitarists before you who also had asperations of gaining great tone.
Fitting Seymour Duncan Pickups isn't just about chasing an existing signature tone It's about finding your tone and giving yourself the best platform to start from. Immediately you will hear the difference in clarity and detail no matter which Pickup you choose. Whether it be a SH-1 59 model or a SH-2 Jazz Model these pickups bring a type of tone to your instrument, but its what you do with it that makes the difference. Ask yourself What does that dream tone sound like? Is it rich and warm or is it hard and powerfull? Either way there are elements of a pickups characteristics that mould this kind of tone. Higher DC Resistances loose high end clarity Lower DC Resistance bring high end but less gain.Seymour Duncan makes 100's of pickups all with slight tweeks and changes from the next so think about your tone, think about what you want from your guitar. Do you want the guitar to just be the starting point and let the amplifier mould the sound you want to create? Or do you want low output pickups that are rich in bluesy tones and let your amp simply amplify your guitars tone?
All these questions are not easily answered but by thinking about those issues brings you closer to what you want from a pickup. I find this tool an amazing starting point when choosing a guitars pickup. The Tone Wizard allows you to select your Guitars wood and pickup configuration and gives you a basis to start in your Tone Journey.
I hope this helps in your quest. Thanks for reading Chris Huskinson Crazy Train Music
