Neck version of our original high output ceramic humbucker, the 8-String Distortion model delivers articulate, fluid tone to extended range guitars.
The Distortion neck pickup is specifically designed for use with the high output bridge version. It provides the highest output of all our neck humbuckers, and is hot enough to deliver smooth, fluid solo tones under gain, while still producing bell-like clean tones. This passive humbucker comes in choice of a standard open-coil look or black metal humbucker cover, both in a classic passive mount that easily fits in any guitar with traditional routing.
Pair with the Duncan Distortion 8-String bridge model for a killer high output setup. Hand built in the Santa Barbara, CA factory, the 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.
