Seymour Duncan

Seymour Duncan may very well be the most innovative rock and roll guitarist around.  As a teen he formed a rock band but noticed the pick-ups in his guitar were not creating the sounds he thought the instrument could produce, so he sought to make hand-wound pick-ups.  In fact as founder of Seymour Duncan Pickups he cornered the market on handcrafted products for the electric guitar.  He designed and manufactured a series of products including the Antiquity and Antiquity II, which create the sound and vibe of pickups made in the '50s. Seymour's dedication to music has always been focused on helping musicians and his passion can be felt any time he plays! Seymour was the 100th person to be interviewed for the NAMM Oral History program.
