  • Mini-humbucker: Seymour Duncan vs Gibson

    I'm looking to drop a mini-humbucker into the bridge position of my guitar.

    I have no experience with mini's.  How does the Gibson mini compare to the line of Duncans?  In particular, I'm interested in the "seymourized" mini model, which is supposedly a bit hotter than vintage.

    FWIW, I've owned several Gibson guitars and have always loved the stock pickups, from the 496 to the Burstbuckers.

    The guitar I'm playing most these days has Seymour minis in it. I believe the SM-1 and SM-2. Just fantastic pickups. I've never really played Gibson's minis except a friend's Firebird, which I think are different from the standard mini-bucker? Dunno. I'm a fan of Gibson pickups too, so I'm sure they're great.

      I own guitars with both. Easily the Gibsons for me.

    I've a Seymourized in the neck slot of a Tele.  Hot hot hot.  Very in your face.

      I have a seymour duncan lil 59  in my am dlx tele [it was installed when I bought it off CL] and also in my blonde RW tele.

      Great little pickup

      my am dlx is an incredibly light guitar and is set up for open G with only 5 strings

      my RW is in std tuning
