How Seymour Duncan helped craft Jimi's iconic guitar tone

On March 28, 1968, Seymour W. Duncan gave Jimi Hendrix a bag of early 1960s Strat pickups that he had rewound. Jimi's guitar tech, Roger Mayer, installed the custom-wound pickups in Jimi's famous white Stratocaster that very night. Jimi was so impressed with the pickups, he had Seymour carry the guitar up to the stage. That unforgettable night greatly inspired Seymour and set his future in motion. The accuracy of these Jimi Hendrix Signature Strat Set guitar pickups leaves no doubt as to Seymour Duncan's intimate insight into Jimi's tone. You don't have Jimi's fingers, of course, but these pickups get you about as close as you can get to capturing his magical tone.
