A custom overwound PAF-like humbucker with moderate output, perfectly voiced for supreme blues, rock, and metal.
The Duncan Custom is a hot humbucker which uses a small ceramic magnet and custom-wound coils to dish out a ‘PAF-on-steroids’ tone. It has tight lows, a bump in the upper midrange which gives you more character and crunch, and an airy high end that cuts through heavy distortion but is also great for achieving crystal-clear clean tones. It’s especially suited to warmer-sounding guitars with a prominent midrange, and many players like to use it in Les Pauls and Paul Reed Smiths. It pairs well with the Jazz or ’59 neck models, and forms one half of our ’59/Custom Hybrid humbucker.
Hand built in our Santa Barbara, CA factory, the Duncan Custom uses a small ceramic bar magnet, nickel silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
