The Seymour Duncan STHR-1b Humbucker for Tele guitars is a high output "rails" type bridge humbucker, built for playing everything from classic rock to full-on metal. Designed to fit in the space of a Tele bridge single coil, this is a perfect and practical choice for making your Tele a bit more hardcore.
This mini humbucker has a high output due to its powerful ceramic magnet with two steel blades and overwound coils for a fat, full-bodied tone. This also means you can product a sound with extreme distortion and sustain. The STHR-1B's construction also offers rich harmonics in the midrange with a crunchy, tight low end which suits genres such as classic rock or metal.
This excellent humbucker has been handmade in the factory in California for a reliable construction, ensuring its superb output. Seymour Duncan suggest pairing the STHR-1b Humbucker with the Hot Rails Tele Neck pickup, as the STHR-1b Humbucker is to be positioned in the bridge. By using both of these pickups you can completely alter your Telecaster's sound, so it'll certainly stand out.
The pickup comes in slick black casing which looks great on any finish. It also comes with a 4-conductor lead for multiple wiring options, and it has been wax potted to ensure there is no unwanted noise or feedback.
Over the years there have been a few famous names to use the Seymour Duncan STHR-1B for Telecaster, including John 5 with Marilyn Manson, Troy Ban Leeuwen of Queens of the Stone Age, and Joe Trohman of Fall Out Boy.
