New Pickup Day: Seymour Duncan Full Shred & '59
My Buddy Blaze 'Sevenator' prototype just got a new set of pickups: Seymour Duncan Full Shred and '59. This guitar has a poplar body, which is a little different to the established tone woods - the best I can do to describe it is as kind of like a slightly cold-sounding alder. I described the sound I was after and the folks at Seymour Duncan recommended the Full Shred. They totally nailed it! It's exactly the sound I've been after. It's fat and warm but with plenty of cut, lots of chunk, and a vocal midrange with lots of nice overtones, especially for legato. And the '59 is awesome too. I'm recording a lot of stuff at the moment and I'll be using the Full Shred and '59 for the majority of it.
