  • Seymour Duncan new EXCITER pickup

    Been seeing this one popping up the last few days.
    The new Seymour Duncan Exciter pickup.
    https://www.musiciansfriend.com/acce...mbucker-pickup

    I'm definitely interested!

    The Exciter bridge humbucker, based on the highly sought-after tone from the early 80s, is designed to hearken back to the signature sound from that time. Loaded with a high-output Ceramic magnet, The Exciter is voiced to deliver powerful dimensions, bold harmonics and firepower that define the glam-rock heyday. Roll back the volume a bit and the tone becomes transparent enough for classic, slightly gritty tones.

    Sure, they call themselves Exciter, but is salvation their task?

      Another JB? I mean JB with couple of ceramic magnets? Or Invader with standard pole pieces?

        That's funny. The first thing that I thought of when I saw the thread title was Judas Priest.

          I was wondering along these lines somewhat as well.

            It's not exciting me.

              "early 80s" "glam-rock heyday"

              I think that the pickup sounds interesting, but this combo does not compute with me.

                Obvious take on George Lynch band Xciter since George Lynch didn't renew deal with The Hunter.


                So what's next? The Yankee Rose for a Vai clone? The Photograph for a Leppard clone? The Feelgood for a Crue clone? The Runaway for a Sambora clone? The Mother for a Danzig clone? The Trooper for a Maiden clone? The Hurricane for a Scorps clone? The Wanted Man for a Robbin Crosby clone?


                And they will all be variations of the JB or the Custom.

                  There are a lot of PAF variations, so I don't see why not.

                    I've always wanted to try a slightly underwound JB from the Custom Shop. Like a JB with less low mid clutter and more detail up top, but not on a different wire gauge so that it looses all the character of a JB being a JB.

                        Are these going to be officially released? I can't see them on the website.

                          Seemed appropriate

                              Dunno. Sometimes retailers update their website before the manufacturer has them available. They aren't supposed to do that, but here we are.
