Limited Edition Duncan Hendrix Pickups
« on: July 11, 2019, 01:15:48 pm »
Snake oil on Jimiís reputation.  Obviously, nobody is going to install a collectible commemorative set of pickups.  Jimi had so many strats and who is to say what songs the Duncan sets were used, if at all.  https://youtu.be/PcjSeBFfwVw

Rumor has it that Mary Poppins sprinkled some psychedelic pixie dust on these pickups for Seymour Duncan.  At least Larry would have patented the pixie dust!!!!

The ingredients of success:

1) Seymour Duncan
2) a photo op with Hendrix
3). Repeat steps 1 & 2 for 50 years = snake oil success in the pickup industry.

Cashing in on Jimi is relatively recent. Theyíve been cashing in on Page for about 6-7 years. Theyíve been hitting on the Beck thing since day 1 (1976) with Billy G coming in a close 2nd.

Id bet the custom shop Psychedelic Set was the Jimi wind before the family signed off on the official set.

I mean IDK about what y'all saw but they literally had Jimi's face and buzzwords plastered all over the marketing for the Custom Shop Psychedelic pickups. Like the old George Lynch pickups after he went to Arcane, or the '78 with EVH, or the High Voltage set with Angus.
I mean, I don't blame them, they're doing pretty well for themselves and they put out some pretty good product.
