The latest release of the pickup company Seymour Duncan is a new humbucker pickup that is the answer to those who demanded a better symbiosis between the huge gained amps and the pickups. The Seymour Duncan SH-15 Alternative-8 Humbucker Pickup is the first to feature the Alnico 8 magnet, that includes hot coils wound to get a bigger output level.
Although this pickup is specially designed for those who have an amp with a lot of gain power, it can also be used in almost any rock style providing a powerful low tone with fat midrange but not being too much dark.
The recommendations for this pickup are: bridge position, combination with SH-1n '59 or the SH-2n Jazz Model and a warm guitar with rosewood fingerboard. There have been no info about the price nor the release date of the Seymour Duncan SH-15 Alternative-8 Humbucker Pickup.
