Willie Adler Working On Signature Humbucker With Seymour Duncan

January 21, 2014

Lamb Of God guitarist Willie Adler has revealed he is currently working on a new signature humbucker design with Seymour Duncan.

Speaking with Music Radar at Lamb Of God’s recent London show at Brixton Academy, Adler commented on the pickups: “I insisted on Duncan ’59s [on my ESP signature model],” he began. “And now we’re doing my own signature pickup based on the Duncan Distortion. I’m working with Duncan on the pickups and, hopefully, tying Duncan and ESP together so we can put them in the guitars.”

Adler said he wanted the humbuckers to have the output of Seymour Duncan Distortion ceramic-based humbuckers, with the tone of the brand’s PAF ’59 Model pickups: “What I’ve found with the Duncan Distortions is that it’s really high output, it’s really gain-y, so we decided to put covers on them, which did everything that I thought it was going to do: it warmed them up and it gave it that kind of passive, tube feel to it, so it’s kind of like a mix of the Distortion and the ’59 combined.”

No official name, price or release date has yet been given, however, there is a chance the humbuckers will be unveiled at the forthcoming NAMM show.

Adler joins an impressive list  of Seymour Duncan endorsers with signature models, including Slash, Gus G, Yngwie Malmsteen and Synyster Gates,
