This review is for a pickup that was a build request direct to the Seymour Duncan Custom shop, built to the same specifications as the humbucker found in a particular Godin electric guitar.
You may be wondering about the abundance of the word “Custom” in the title, but a brief explanation of the Custom series by Seymour Duncan, may make more sense…
Custom – Ceramic Magnet
Custom Custom – Alnico II Magnet
Custom 5 – Alnico 5 Magnet
Custom/59 Hybrid = Alnico 5 Magnet
Custom Custom Custom??? essentially and quite possibly a different magnet in the Custom Custom model, however the tone reminds me closest of the Custom 5 …a chunky PAF on steroids, with a nice bright and clear cutting character, particularly when used with distortion.
Measured DC resistance – 14.44k ohms
