Seymour recalls, "When I'd work on one of those great oldguitars for a client, I liked to rewind the pickups with 42-gaugeplain-enamel wire. I'd also insert sand-cast Alnico magnets with abetter-balanced magnetic field, which made the B and high E soundas powerful as the other strings. This modified pickup had moreoutput and a higher frequency response.

 

 

The Whole Lotta Humbucker set is a replica of these specialpickups with 8.78k DC resistance for the bridge pickup, 8.20k forthe neck, custom winding pitch, and a calibrated sand-cast Alnicomagnet. I have such great memories of living in London, so I'mthrilled to be producing this pickup once again." Guitar playersaround the world who are looking to capture the tone of an era willnow be able to get Whole Lotta Humbucker at their local store orfavorite online dealer.
