Product Description

In the early ‘80s when high gain and hot pickups were the way most players leaned, Seymour modified one of his humbuckers for a friend who was a master Fusion player and composer.

The AH combines overwound coils and an Alnico 5 magnet with two rows of adjustable screws. The impact of the screws adds meat to single notes and lower midrange to chords.


DC Resistance: 16.8k

Application: Standard HB Route




We are passionate about quality so we ask for your patience while we craft your pickup. Depending on the nature of your order, it may take up to 6-8 weeks for delivery.

  1. A+ 5 Star Review

    In short, the best pickup I've ever used. Period. One issue I have with alnico (i.e. JB) is it's muddy or has a shrill top end. The inherent issue with ceramic is its unnaturally bright. This pickup takes the desired characteristics of ceramic: tightness, clarity, punch, and has the added warmth of the alnico magnet. Add to that a unique production of nice thick single notes. Seymour Duncan aught to add this back to their current production.

  2. Two thumbs up 5 Star Review

    I'm not a guitar player. I am a builder so I'm not really qualified to comment on the nuances of the tone. I can say that it met all my expectations. It is perfect for the guitar I put it in and the buyer loves it. The engraving is excellent. The staff at the custom shop were friendly and professional.

  3. Metal Fatigue Superiority 5 Star Review

    An unusual sound at such high DC resistance, very PAF like tone with extras. A very rich tone when overdriven, stands alone despite JB comparisons. Response and sustain are exceptional. A nice clean sound, not honky or too loud.
    I play legato, but more staccato, so I like some level of percussive attack. This pickup has a smoother attack, generally, notes don't have overbite, nor do they smear. The overall buttery sound during leads has the ultimate tone compared to all other passive pickups.
    Any style can be produced, I would call this the Gentleman Virtuoso's pickup.

  4. Warm tone and excellent output 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Feb 2017

    I purchased my second one recently for another guitar "project" (still in the box) because I just can't see how I can feel satisfied with a different one. I loved the classic PAF sound and this one is definitely the next step for me whether I use it for mousy snappy rhythm, jazzy solos, wide chords and definitely the best for overdrive solos. It has like an all round overall tone in all the frecuencies, not to bassy or too trebly anywhere and the output is surprisingly cut-through. It is definitely worth the extra bucks :)
