Ever wanted to own a Seymour Duncan Custom Shop pickup? Contrary to what you might think, the Custom Shop isn’t just for the rich and famous: anyone can have them build them a pickup – and they make a lot of different kinds of pickups. I recently had them build me my own custom 7-string humbucker, the Magnetar, which is an absolute beast. Well now Seymour Duncan has launched an online Custom Shop store where you can order all sorts of Custom Shop pickups, and you can specify various options depending on the model. Warren Demartini RTM with vintage long legs? Done. Charlie Christian humbucker? Easy. ’78 Model? No problem. Pearly Gates for Tele? Hells yes. Didn’t know SD did Wide Range humbuckers? Now ya do.
There’s more! Seven-string Hot Rail for Strat? Yep, they do that. Pearly Gates for Strat? Not even I realised they did that. Filtertron? Rickenbucker? Strat single coil stealthed under a P-90 soapbar cover? Mosrite? Yep, yep, yep, yep. Oh and check out the mysterious IM1. The point is, if you go to the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop store you’re probably gonna find a whole bunch of tone options that you didn’t even know were available to you, and that’s gotta be cool, right?
