Not even doctors make house calls anymore. Fortunately for producer legend Daniel Lanois, Seymour, custom shop manager Maricela “MJ” Juarez and tech guru Scott Miller paid a visit to the guitar guru’s Silverlake, CA home to deliver a set of Stereo Gretsch Filtertron pickups that MJ specifically re-created for him.
Lanois has produced albums by some of the biggest artists of the last 30 years. Names like Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Brian Eno and U2, but he’s also a major guitarist with an incredible vintage collection. His two favorite guitars for studio and stage are the Stratocasters pictured below, which have Seymour Duncan Hot Rails inside. “It was a pleasure hanging with Daniel last week”, says Miller, “if he’d asked us to bring him Chinese food instead of vintage pickups, we would have happily obliged.”
