Seymour Duncan Distortion 8-String Passive Guitar Pickup  (Open Box)
Ships Internationally
Product# J01390

If you like your licks smoking hot, this pickup is the hot sauce you're looking for.

The Duncan Distortion has been a staple for metal, trash, punk, and hard rock players spanning generations. Now that classic vicious attack is ready for 8-string guitars. Loaded with a large ceramic magnet and red hot coils, the tone is blistering and tight, exploding with output and gain. You'll feel increased midrange while bass notes stay thick and articulate. In a 7-string guitar you'll hear previously unrealized harmonics from your B and F# strings.

Available in neck and bridge. Use the Distortion neck for hot, searing solos or pair with the lower output Sentient or Jazz neck for warm and smooth leads. This 8-string passive mount has naked coils or black metal covers and sounds brutal in almost anything, but can add extra the oomph that might be missing from mahogany bodies and necks guitars.

  • Passive mount with naked coils or black metal covers
  • Large ceramic magnet
  • Red hot coils

You'll need an extinguisher handy after you put this pickup in your favorite axe. Order today!
