    Does anyone know the years of release of the earliest seymour pickups?

    you might want to ask that question on Duncan's forum. They have knowledgable folks on there or contact the company's Customer Service Department.

    Earliest? No clue, but the company was founded in 1978

    The JB is the pickup he wound for Jeff Beck in that Tele he gave Beck... that had to be early to mid 70's.

    I remember Seymour advertising a rewinding service back in 1976. I wrote him (this is pre email of course) about rewinding my Ric pickups and he wrote me back saying how they were kind of limited in design. I also wanted him to wind the neck pickup as a stacked humbucker, which he said wouldn't work... but then he basically did just that with his first stacks... I like to think that I got him thinking about it. I got the idea from Les Paul Recording pickups.

    He has a huge Q & A section with pages of stuff. Some of it should cover wen some of these came out. I'm sure you could ask him too. I met Kevin Beller and some of them in '95 at the ASIA Symposium and they were very cool. They said they had no problem custom winding one off projects. I bet someone would tell you the answers.
    It would be possible to describe everything scientifically, but it would make no sense; it would be without meaning, as if you described a Beethoven symphony as a variation of wave pressure. Albert Einstein
