From the Seymour Duncan web site, Seth Lover set:
A calibrated set of the most faithful PAF’s available, built exactly the way Seth Lover intended for a smooth and sweet tone. The Seth Lover Set is the perfect choice for players wanting to transform a solid body or semi hollow into a singing classic rock machine. Nothing but blue sky.
The Seth Lover neck model gives you a smooth but articulate tone by striking the perfect balance of warm, full low end and a nice sweet treble. The alnico 2 bar magnet helps to smooth the high end response, while the vintage output coils bring out this pickup’s rich harmonic content. Single notes will have that perfect singing quality, and the un-potted nickel silver cover gives the tone an almost piano-like percussive feel.
The Seth Lover bridge model gives you that warm, airy, open tone by striking just the right balance of low end warmth with a smooth but articulate top end. Chords will have a full, open sound, and single notes will have a soft, yet articulate feel.
Each humbucker is carefully hand built in Santa Barbara to Seth Lover’s original exacting specs. Our butyrate bobbin molds are created by the same factory that built the original PAF mold for Gibson. Other key features include our specially manufactured 42AWG plain enamel mag wire, nickel silver cover, 2.5-inch alnico 2 bar magnet, custom machined metal and maple spacers, single conductor push-back braided lead wire, and nickel silver bottom plate. We wind every Seth Lover humbucker on Seymour’s original Leesona winding machine from the early Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, MI., for that unmistakable vintage tone and feel.
