Vintage focused humbucker for classic warmth and bite.

The Seymour Duncan ’78 Model humbucker is an homage to the original P.A.F. rewind. In the late 70s, Seymour Duncan was well known as the go-to guy for the tone-chasers that needed something custom. Sometime in ‘78 he was given a P.A.F. with the instructions to rewind it and make it more sensitive to natural and artificial harmonics. In other words, give it the Duncan “hot wind” with a little extra. Loaded with an Alnico 2 magnet, the '78 Model is wound to the exact same hot specs as that original. The magnet and output combination lend themselves to a warm crunch with biting leads and overtone laden tapped runs. If you’re a tone-chasing player who wants the classic hard rockin’ rhythm crunch, articulate picked harmonics for your tapped solos and whammy bar acrobatics, the ’78 Model is what you need.
