“The combination of them all can be turned to on a dime, according to the feel and vibe that I'm going for”: Seymour Duncan’s Eric Gales signature pickups promise balance across all five positions

Seymour Duncan has announced a new set of signature pickups for Eric Gales that look like they could solve some headaches for any Strat players who are fed up with dropping outputs in certain switching positions.

The Strat-inspired set encompasses a trio of single coil pickups and will slot in nicely to his glitzy S-style Magneto RD-3 signature guitar. They use Alnico IV magnets in their construction, which are known for offering a nicely balanced EQ and more of an even sound than their stronger Alnico V brethren.
