    Default Duncan Custom Shop Custom 5 overwound.

    This is a nickel Custom 5 wound in the Custom Shop at the 2005 User Group Day.
    It's been wound past the 14.4K spec to 15K.
    It sounds like a cross between a C5 and JB. 4 lead. Pushes a Marshall nicely! $100 Shipped Priority 2 Day.

    Any idea what color bobbins are under the cover?
    What’s the spacing?

    Spacing is never an issue since the magnetic field picks up everything equally. Bobbin color is what it is.

    I dropped an A8 magnet in the current pickup in the LP. Tonally very similar but there’s just “more” of everything. Sustain is ridiculously good.

    Could you be interested in a trade for your Custom Shop Custom 5 pickup? I have a new-in-the-box Seymour Duncan Vintage Tele neck pickup, 2000 Gibson Standard naturally reliced gold covered bridge humbucker and an SD black coil 59 humbucker. Do any of these hold an appeal to you? Thanks, Jeff

    This pickup was Seymour's answer for a Custom 5 with more mids.
