Just in time for Halloween, the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop has created ten sets of “Boo-Bucker” pickups. Throughout the weekend, ten lucky winners will receive a set of these brilliant humbuckers—a Custom Shop ’78 humbucker for the bridge and a Pearly Gates humbucker for the neck—wound by the legendary Maricela “MJ” Juarez of Seymour Duncan Custom Shop. To complete the spooky Halloween look, MJ dyed the bobbins orange and incorporated a jet black “Seymour Duncan” logo.
The ’78 Model is a recreation of a legendary low-output humbucker Seymour originally created for the high-flying soloists of the late ’70s and early ’80s. The Pearly Gates is a faithful recreation of the pickups in a certain ’59 Les Paul that helped lay the foundation of Texas blues-rock. Both pickups have Alnico-2 magnets and 4-conductor cable. And both are spoooooooky … in the Halloween Boo-Bucker set.
