Seymour Duncan Introduces the Billy Gibbons Red Devil Pickups

Santa Barbara, CA (September 14, 2018) — Keep the summer heat going with our brand new Billy Gibbons Red Devil Pickups.

Everything is bigger in Texas—and it’s hard to imagine a bigger tone than Texas-born Billy Gibbons’ 1959 Les Paul, “Pearly Gates.” Renowned for his highly distinct tone, Billy Gibbons has never been one to limit himself to a single guitar. Needing to recreate his legendary ’59 humbucker tone but in a Strat-sized single-coil route, Billy placed a call to La Maestra, Maricela “MJ” Juarez. From their conversation a new pickup set was born and is destined to be as legendary as the Texas rocker himself.​​​​​​​ All the fat, PAF tone and Texas hot-sauce sizzle of Billy’s favorite was recreated in a pickup that will fit in any Strat-sized single coil route—proving tone as big as Texas can come in deceptively small packages.

The Red Devil set features three unique pickup winds, with specially calibrated Alnico 5 magnets. The bridge is wound like an extra spicy PAF, with enough meat to beef up your Strat and provide the fat tone of Billy’s #1. The neck and middle step back the heat a little and brush on sweet, smoky blues—ideal for cleans, rhythm, or lead.

Hand built in our Santa Barbara, CA factory; the Red Devil model for Strat uses Alnico 5 magnets, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and vacuum wax potting for squeal-free performance.
