Seymour Duncan is proud to offer an initial limited run (less than 40) of these sets faithfully hand-wound by Seymour W. Duncan himself, recreating one of his earliest winds for Strat. Each set includes a calibrated neck, middle, and bridge pickup for Stratocaster, featuring a reverse magnet stagger to replicate Jimi’s “righty turned upside down” sound. The pickups have gone through an Antiquity ageing process to replicate the original set and include aged white pickup covers. Each set is shipped in a commemorative wooden box featuring a laser engraved logo and is made with care, signed, dated and serialised by the man himself.

The Story...

On March 28th 1968, a young Seymour Duncan went to see Jimi Hendrix perform at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. He brought with him a set of Stratocaster pickups he had pulled out of the junk drawer at a music store in his native New Jersey and rewound on his record player.  Seymour found himself backstage, talking shop and trading tips and tricks with Jimi Hendrix and Roger Mayer. The pickups Seymour brought were installed in a Strat Jimi would use that night.

Seymour has always taken comprehensive notes documenting his process, so he knows just how to recreate the pickups he wound and gifted to Jimi fifty years ago.

“Winding pickups is like painting, or picking for that matter. Your hand remembers the way, and everyone’s touch is a little different.”
