This set includes the SM-1n Vintage Mini Humbucker neck pickup and the SM-1b Vintage Mini Humbucker bridge pickup. This is a custom shop set that includes gold covers.
The Seymour Duncan SM-1 Vintage Mini Humbucker Pickup is a vintage-correct replica of classic Firebird® pickup. Great for jazz, blues, rockabilly, classic rock and heavy rock.
The sound of the SM-1 Vintage is somewhat of a tonal cross between a single-coil and a humbucker. They're brighter and livelier than a full-size humbucker with more "bell tone." The Alnico 5 magnet and moderate output coil windings make it an authentic tonal reproduction of the great sound of a classic Firebird®. Comes with vintage-style single-conductor hookup cable.
The SM-1b bridge is slightly overwound compared to the SM-1n neck. Designed for balanced and warm instruments. Works especially well with soft wood bodies (e.g., mahogany and swamp ash) and rosewood fingerboards.
Players include Sonny Landreth, Rick McRae / George Strait Band, Martha Davis / Motels, Tom Principato.
