Concept Set - JB Jazz Custom Shop
In the early '70s, Seymour lived in London creating guitar pickups for Britain's top players. His masterpiece, though, was a guitar he built for Jeff Beck, affectionately known as the "TeleGib." Seymour matched a Fender Telecaster®—that's the "Tele®"—with hot-rodded Gibson-style humbuckers—that's the "Gib." The pickups themselves represented a new era of advanced guitar sound, pairing a high-output bridge pickup with highly resonant harmonics and a smooth, moderate output neck pickup.
This is the concept that would later serve as the basis of the JB Model™—the world's most popular humbucker— and its frequent match, the Jazz Model™. In honor of our 35th Anniversary, the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop is proud to offer the JB/Jazz Concept set. This pickup pair is precisely like the pickups in the original "TeleGib," with a long-legged bottom plate, single-conductor wire, and Alnico-V magnets in the neck pickup, and Alnico-II in the bridge.
