78 Model Trembucker
the late 70s, Seymour Duncan was well known as the go-to guy for the
tone-chasers that needed something custom. Sometime in ‘78 he was given a
P.A.F. with the instructions to rewind it and make it more sensitive to
natural and artificial harmonics. In other words, give it the Duncan
“hot wind” with a little extra.
Seymour Duncan ‘78 is loaded with an Alnico 2 magnet, wound to the
exact same hot specs as that original P.A.F. rewind. The magnet and
output combination lend themselves to a warm crunch with biting leads
and overtone laden tapped runs.

The ’59 has a full low end
which is great for adding character to your clean sounds and sustain to
your leads. The high end is slightly boosted for improved pick-attack
clarity and the mids are a little scooped for an open, smooth sound
that’s great for preserving the clarity of the individual notes in a
chord. Play softly and the mids and highs seem to fade back, but pick
hard and the note will be confident and clear. There isn’t a genre that
the ’59 can’t work within. It pairs nicely with a high output bridge
humbucker like the JB or Custom but is equally at home with more
moderate pickups like the ’59 bridge. And it’s a popular choice for
those with humbucker-routed Telecasters as well. And if you order a
four-conductor version for coil splitting, its single coil mode is
Model neck pickup is wound on Seymour’s Leesona 102 pickup winding
machine, the very one that was used in the Gibson factory in Kalamazoo,
