Seymour Duncan Seth Lover Humbucker Bridge Pickup
When you hear people talk about the “patent applied for” humbucker, they’re talking about Seth Lover’s patent. Seth invented the now ubiquitous humbucking pickup while working as a design engineer at Gibson in the mid-’50s. Now some 40 years later, Seymour Duncan and Seth joined forces to produce the the world’s only “patent applied for” reissue that bears its inventor’s name!
The SH-55 Seth Lover Model is a perfectly faithful recreation of the original 1955 design. The SH-55 utilizes the same nickel-sivler bottom plate, Butyrate plastic bobbins, plain enameled wire, Alnico II bar magnet, wooden spacer, black paper tape, braided single-conductor cable, and nickel plated nickel-silver cover as the original. The DC resistance of each SH-55 is recorded along with its serial number and maintained in Seymour’s files.
The tone is vintage and purely “patent applied for!” The unpotted covers give this bridge pickup just enough brashness to cut through the mix with plenty of bite and sustain. The SH-55 is warmer and smoother than Seymour’s ’59 model with a more traditional, compressed, “honk-like” tone.
