Here we have a pre owned set of Seymour Duncan Custom Shop ’78 Trembucker pickup set. This is an earlier Custom Shop set. The bobbins are Zebra. The bridge pickup is a Trembucker or 53mm spaced. The neck is standard 50mm space. These pickups have been modified to fit an ibanez. The feet have been cut down to a triangle shape. The screw holes are still standard and have not been drilled out. They can still be mounted traditionally with pickup rings. They will be priced accordingly. Please see all photos for condition. Thanks for looking and happy buying!
From Seymour Duncan site…
In the late 70s, Seymour Duncan was well known as the go-to guy for players that wanted something custom. Sometime in ‘78, Eddie Van Halen gave him a P.A.F. to experiment with, along with instructions to rewind it with the intent to enhance the reproduction of artificial harmonics and “hot wind” a little for some extra “juice”.
The Seymour Duncan ‘78 Model humbucker is the result of that experiment. Loaded with an Alnico 2 magnet and wound to the exact same hot specs as that original P.A.F. rewind, the ‘78’s magnet and output combination lends itself to a warm crunch with biting leads and overtone laden tapped runs. While the ‘78 Model was not the final destination for Eddie, it offers players the opportunity to revisit a waypoint in the early days of his legendary pursuit of the ultimate tone.
If you’re a player who demands a high-performance tone and wants the classic hard rockin’ rhythm crunch, articulate picked harmonics for your tapped solos and whammy bar acrobatics, the ‘78 Model just may be your ticket.
