A Very Special Guitar Sent by Seymour W. Duncan

Erich Lover (Seth Lover’s Grandson) holds his new guitar.

"I can’t possibly thank you enough for this awesome guitar…I was absolutely speechless when I opened the case and we saw my grandpa’s name on the pickups" These were Erich Lover’s words (Seth Lover’s Grandson) when he received, as a graduation present, this very special guitar sent by Seymour W. Duncan. The Gibson Les Paul was kindly donated by Gibson Guitars with the assistance of Ron Moe. Seymour loaded it with Seth Lover pickups.

Seymour really appreciated the relationship he built with Seth Lover, his "humbucker mentor". He wanted to surprise Eric with the legacy of his grandfather’s work. "I love the sound from the pickups and it gives me goose bumps every time I play it because I think about how you and my grandpa worked together on it."

Seymour and Seth Lover were associated for nearly 20 years. In 1994, they joined forces to release the Seth Lover Model™ pickup, an authentic re-creation of the "Patent Applied For" humbucker.
