  • Shannon Thomas

  • Dom Heaney

    This competition is only open to US residents. What a load of crap. Why discriminate against Europe . You like us to buy your pick ups, become a Facebook fan, enter the competitions…. But can’t win. I am apalled that my loyalty gets a smack in the face for living in Europe. It’s not like I wouldn’t pay the shipping if I won. I will still use the pickups because I like them but I’m gonna unsubscribe next week from everything else, Facebook /twitter etc

  • Kenneth W. Landis

    Seymore Duncans are the only pickups for guitar for me. This is a good looking guitar and will go great with my custom made guitar.

    What a beautiful piece of work……. love it!!

  • Ed Perrone

    I suspect the reason the contest is open to U.S. residents only is because of legal issues (both in the U.S. and in the other countries), not because of a decision by Seymour Duncan to “exclude” people.

    Seymour Duncan pickups have been around 35 years for a good reason, they make great products at a fair price, and treat customers with respect.

  • roge rob

    Do you really think that by erasing my comment (yesterday) people won’t figure out what a load of crap this contest is (as is any contest involving a US of A “musical instrument company”..)?? Selling your stuff all over the world but keeping the “payoff” in a contest for yourself shows just how narrowminded you can be… And proud, i’m sure..

  • Daveb1952
