Duncan Seth Lover Neck Nickel
Ultra-authentic, Alnico 2, P.A.F.-type humbucker. Great for country, jazz, blues and classic rock.
Designed jointly by Seymour and humbucker
inventor, the late Seth Lover. Just like the original 1955 P.A.F.s, the
SH-55 utilizes a nickel silver cover and long-legged nickel silver
bottom plate, butyrate plastic bobbins, plain enamel wire, Alnico 2
bar, wooden spacer, and black paper tape. To be completely true to the
original design and tone, the pickup is not wax potted. The tone is
vintage P.A.F. The unpotted cover gives a slightly "honky" microphonic
quality. Vintage style single conductor cable standard.
Mostly commonly used in a neck and bridge
set. Can be used in the neck with an SH-11 Custom Custom for heavier
rock sounds from the bridge position.
For brighter toned instruments. Works especially
well with maple and ebony fingerboards. Not recommended for use with
ultra high gain tube amplifiers over 50 watts.
