When Seymour Duncan announced the Jason Becker Perpetual Burn humbucker, it seemed like a natural fit for Carvin’s Jason Becker Tribute JB200C guitar. But Carvin have always – always -used their own pickups exclusively. Well ladies and gentlemen, history has been made today because as of today you can order a Jason Becker Tribute JB200C with a Perpetual Burn in the bridge position. As Carvin explained on Facebook (to a fan who asked what the big deal was with Carvin never using third-party pickups before), “The difference is that our company (Carvin) was founded on our pick-ups and we have ALWAYS made our own pick ups. This is the first time we’ve ever opened the door to working with a 3rd party manufacturer for something we still make in house. Doesn’t sound like a big deal.. but it really is to us. This is history in the making for anyone that truly knows about our company.”
The Perpetual Burn is available as an option in the JB200C for an extra $50. You can read my review of the Perpetual Burn here.
