The saga of Jason Becker and Seymour Duncan spans decades when in the late 80s Jason approached us with a new humbucker design. It was to have a slightly hotter-than-vintage wind of 12K coupled with an Alnico 5 magnet to capture the perfect balance of output, warmth, and note to note clarity that all shredders dreams of. Years later, the opportunity came for us to make Jasons vision a reality. The Perpetual Burn is made for endless tapping, wide bends, complex chords and intricate single note passages. And while Jasons signature pickup is the consummate shred machine, its medium output and voicing makes it perfect for other demanding styles from progressive rock to fusion. Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the Perpetual Burn comes with 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal free operation.
