The Seymour Duncan PATB-3b is a moderate output dual-pole Parallel Axis Trembucker that delivers a truly versatile tone, specifically voiced by Blues Saraceno. Originally created in the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop for Blues Saraceno, this pickup was voiced to have the tonal character of a PAF, but with the power to cut through for Blues dynamic playing style. As Blues put it, this pickup provides a "'notched' tone with a 'honky, old-school, retro vibe.'”
Great for all style of rock & blues, and behaves very nicely under any amount of gain. Trembuckers have wider pole piece spacing, perfect for symmetrical positioning under the strings of guitars with a tremolo or wide spaced hard tail bridge (2 or wider from the center of the Low E to High E directly over the bridge pickup). Hand made in Santa Barbara, CA, the Original Parallel Axis uses our unique dual-pole design for added sustain, an Alnico 5 bar magnet, 4-conductor wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal free operation.
