Seymour Duncan and Mayones have again teamed up to give away a very special one-of-a-kind guitar to one lucky player! This time it’s a Regius 7 with a Wenge top, flamed Alder back (yes, flamed Alder) custom Black Pearl binding, and a Schaller Hannes bridge. The neck is an 11-ply Wenge-Mahogany-Padouk-Maple ‘Exotic I’ neck with an Ebony fingerboard and Sperzel locking tuners, while electronics consist of our SH4-7 JB and SH2-7 Jazz passive humbuckers.
To win this beautiful, unique, professional-spec instrument, entrants must upload a video of themselves playing to a backing track (in the key of G#, and created by Arkadiusz “Młody” Bogaj). Full details as well as the actual entry submission link are right here. The winner will be decided by public vote. But most importantly, we’d like to stress that you don’t have to be a super-speedy shredder to enter – just bring your inspiration, talent and creativity. This isn’t a contest to find the fastest player. We just want everyone to have fun and share their creativity. Here’s the backing track for you to check out:
Seymour created the 6-string versions of the JB and Jazz humbuckers while living in England in 1974, and they remain his favorite set today. The JB’s over-wound coils, provide high output with just the right amount of sustain and distortion, while the Jazz Model in the neck for calibrated output and a clear, bright sound which is as perfect for articulate rhythm playing as it is for detailed high-speed soloing. This set is great for everything from hard blues to heavy rock, and it comes with four-conductor cable for trick switching options.
