Our original high output ceramic humbucker, the Duncan Distortion SH-6 bridge model is perfect for rock and metal players. Description Launched in 1980, the Duncan Distortion is our original high output humbucker. We use a massive ceramic magnet and hot coil windings to deliver full-bodied rock and metal tones with powerful upper mids for extra cut and grind. It’s great for hard-hitting, crunchy rhythms, and the lead tones scream with wild harmonics. It also remains tight with low tunings.
The matching Duncan Distortion neck pickup is the perfect partner for complementary lead and rhythm tones, or pair it with a Jazz neck model for a wider range of sounds. Handcrafted in our Santa Barbara, CA factory, the Duncan Distortion uses a large ceramic bar magnet, nickel silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
WHY SO CHEAP?
This pickup has unfortunately been subjected to damp - not submerged but it's been in a damp environment. It is however fully working, the DC resistance measures xxxxx which shows that the windings are in good condition. These are copper anyway so relatively unaffected by damp. The external look of the pickup is good, a little discolouration and a bit of rust on two of the seven pole pieces. We cleaned these up with WD40 so the look of the pickup is quite reasonable. The packaging / box is very shoddy but who cares about that once the pickup is fitted and working - it's going in the bin!! As always, your statutory rights are unaffected as for any other purchase. If for any reason it doesn't work, send it back and we'll give you a full refund.
