The Seymour Duncan SM-1b Vintage Mini Humbucker Bridge 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.
Available in both neck and bridge versions, with the bridge slightly overwound. The SM-1 Vintage is commonly used in the neck with an SM-2 Custom or SM-3 Seymourized in the bridge position for higher output and versatility. 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.
