At the Seymour Duncan booth at NAMM this past weekend, Joe got to play two blues tunes with the one and only Seymour Duncan. Not did he only jam with him, but we also learned that Seymour Duncan is releasing signature pickups. The Joe Bonamassa Signature Pickups from Seymour Duncan will be a Guitar Center near you in the soon to come future. Above we have Joe Bonamassa on the left and Seymour on the right. You can also see Len Bonamassa in the background. Joe jammed out on his Gibson, while Seymour played his Fender Telecaster.
The Joe Bonamassa Signature dual-humbucker set accurately replicates the P.A.F. pickups in Joe’s beloved 1959 sunburst Les Paul®. Their rich, dynamic, and nuanced voice will appeal to all tone connoisseurs who cherish the passion and power of the original humbucker. Wound on the historic Leesona machine that created humbuckers for Gibson back in the ‘50s and ‘60s, the set features an Alnico 2 magnet in the neck pickup and Alnico 3 in the bridge. Period-correct butyrate bobbins, lightly antiqued nickel covers, wooden spacer, and retro-style “Bonamassa” P.A.F. stickers heighten the vintage vibe. Only 1,959 Custom Shop sets will be sold. Each will be hand signed by Seymour Duncan and Joe Bonamassa and include a special USB flash drive with video interviews, special features, and more.
