Summary

In 1968 Jimi Hendrix played a Strat loaded with pickups hand-wound by Seymour. Fifty years later we are proud to share a piece of that history with you.

 

Description

On a chilly evening in March of 1968, Jimi Hendrix asked a young Seymour W. Duncan to walk his guitar up onstage. That Strat was loaded with pickups Seymour had wound just for Jimi, and that unforgettable night would set in motion Seymour’s future – and his legacy almost five decades later. Now you can be a bit closer to Jimi’s world with our Jimi Hendrix™ Signature Strat Set.

 

Like Jimi’s music, the Jimi Hendrix Signature Strat Set pickups have their roots in the traditional but with an eye on the future. Each is custom wound for a richer, melodic tone. The bridge model has an aggressive attack that cuts through while staying true to his iconic lead tone. The neck pickup sounds thick and full and is great for chord work, bluesy melodies, double-stops and Jimi’s signature hybrid chord/melody style. And in the in-between positions there’s plenty of that classic Strat ‘quack.’

 

To help you to get even closer to Jimi’s earth-shattering tone, each pickup is made with a reverse magnet stagger to capture the effect of playing a right-handed guitar upside-down and restrung for a lefty.

 

The white pickup covers showcase Jimi’s signature. The set also comes with a commemorative booklet and stickers.

 

Put a set in your Strat and prepare to be Experienced!

It’s pretty simple.  Seymour Duncan is to pickups what Pirelli is to car tyres…  Quite frankly no-one can rival the Seymour Duncan company for their design and drive to create the very best in guitar and bass pickups.  Testaments come from top guitarist across the world including Slash, Jeff Loomis, Gus G, Joe Bonamassa, Paul Stanley, Mark Holcomb, Synyster Gates, Wes Borland… who’ve chosen Duncan pickups for decades; also, not to forget the brands such as Schecter, ESP and Ibanez who regularly load their guitar with Duncan pickups straight out of the factory.

 

Enough with the testimonials, what is it that makes Seymour Duncan’s pickups so desirable?  Seymour, working at Fender Soundhouse in London, made a name for himself as the go-to guy if you wanted to get the most out of your guitar, setting up instruments for the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, and of course Jeff Beck.  Along with his wife Cathy Duncan they started the company in ‘75 effectively rewiring other people’s pickups and fixing their electronics for as little as $17.50.

 

Now based in Santa Barbara CA, Seymour Duncan remains a family run company with Seymour and Cathy still at the wind grind (sorry, couldn’t help it) today.  Steeped in its rich history Seymour Duncan has grown into a guitar pickup powerhouse having helped legendary artists like Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen and so many more achieve their signature tones.  The quality proven from pickup to pickup shows that of a company that has been perfecting its craft for over 37 years.

Although they may be well known for pickups Seymour Duncan are steadily increasing their effects pedal and gear range with new entries like the Andromeda delay which rival the Strymon Timeline and latest Powerstage power amps.  Duncan are working closely with their afore mentioned endless roster of high profile artists to create pedals that produce unique sounds you won't here anywhere else!
