The Screamin Demon is a medium output humbucker designed to deliver crisp 80s sizzle with a scooped midrange.
The idea was to create a pickup that had the articulate airiness of an old-school PAF, but with more growl and sizzle. We designed slightly overwound coils, an alnico 5 bar magnet, and used a mix of pole pieces that included one row of standard adjustable screws, and one row of shorter Allen head screw. What you get is a big, open tone, with a treble emphasis that keeps your pick attack sounding articulate at any level of distortion. Originally designed as a bridge pickup, the 10k Screamin Demon is also a great neck pickup when paired with a high output humbucker in the bridge. Pair with the 59 neck or Jazz neck humbuckers for a great setup.Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the Screamin Demon model uses an alnico 5 bar magnet, nickel silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
