Dates of manufacture:
The Seymour Duncan ‘78 Model humbucker is based on the P.A.F. humbucker that Seymour Duncan rewound for Eddie Van Halen in 1978. Van Halen wanted a hotter pickup to help give his artificial harmonics that extra squeal. The '78 model is loaded with an Alnico 2 magnet and wound to the same hot specs as Eddies original P.A.F. rewind. The ‘78’s magnet and output combination lends itself to a warm crunch with biting leads and would suit players looking for a classic hard rock rhythm crunch, articulate picked harmonics for tapped solos and tremolo acrobatics.
