carvin jason becker perpetual burn

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.” Read More …

REVIEW: Seymour Duncan Jason Becker Perpetual Burn Humbucker

Seymour Duncan jason becker perpetual burn humbuckerThe story of the Seymour Duncan Jason Becker Perpetual Burn humbucker is a very interesting one. Back in the day, a young Jason Becker became taken with the tone of a Gibson Les Paul loaded with a Seymour Duncan JB humbucker. The guitar belonged to Bob Rock, who was producer of David Lee Roth’s A Little Ain’t Enough album, and Jason used it on the title track. He was so intrigued by the tone of the JB that he started talking with Seymour Duncan about this pickup needs. Some prototypes were developing and the project was well on its way when Jason had to call a halt due to his progressively worsening ALS. But recently, while listening to friends play his guitars through prototypes of a possible signature amp, Jason was blown away by the tone of the prototype pickup. So he reached out to Seymour Duncan to finish was started. The Jason Becker Perpetual Burn bridge humbucker is the result.

We talked about what I wanted and over the course of a few months, they sent about six test pickups.” Read More …

MART3386 (2)As I sit here I’m listening to an advance copy of Marty Freidman’s forthcoming album Inferno and it’s a monster.

I’ll post a full review and an interview with Marty closer to the release date but just know that this album will kick your ass. Here’s more info: Read More …
