SANTA BARBARA, July 19, 2018 – Seymour Duncan, a leading manufacturer of pickups and
pedals, helps Texas blues/rock fans raise the heat index this Fall with the release of the new
Billy Gibbons’ Red Devil for Strat guitar pickups.
Renowned for his highly district tone, Billy Gibbons has never been one to limit himself to a
single guitar. Wanting to recreate his legendary 59’ humbucker tone but in a Strat-sized single
coil route, Billy placed a call to La Maestra, Maricela “MJ” Juarez. From their conversation a
new pickup set was born and is destined to be as legendary as the Texas rocker himself.
All the fat, P.A.F. tone and Texas hot-sauce sizzle of Billy’s favorite was recreated in a pickup that will fit in any Strat-sized single coil route—proving that tone as big as Texas can come in deceptively small packages.
The Red Devil for Strat set features three unique pickup winds, with specially calibrated Alnico 5 magnets, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and vacuum wax potting for
squeal-free performance. The bridge is wound like an extra spicy P.A.F., with enough meat to
beef up your Strat and provide the fat tone of Billy’s #1. The neck and middle step back the heat a little and brush on sweet, smoky blues—ideal for cleans, rhythm, or lead.
Hand built in our Santa Barbara, CA factory, the Red Devil for Strat pick-ups comes in four color options: White, Crème, Black, or Parchment and are available as Neck, Middle, Bridge, or a Set.
