When it comes to extended range guitars, Seymour Duncan has you covered with their wide range of pickup models for 7 & 8 string guitars. With the new rise of Progressive Metal playing, Seymour Duncan wanted to offer pickups geared specifically for 7 & 8 string guitar players looking to get the most out of every note them strum. Watch the video above to get a taste of what these pickups have to offer!

Pegasus

The Pegasus uses an alnico 5 magnet and custom designed coils for tonal balance and moderate output. Huge chords and complex arpeggios are equally perfect. The Pegasus comes in a bridge version only, and is designed to be matched with the Sentient neck. Offered in 7 & 8 string passive mount with naked coils or black metal covers and Active Mount with exposed adjustable pole pieces. Best with bright to semi-warm woods (from Maple to Korina) with either Maple or Rosewood fingerboards.

Nazgûl

Created for total sonic obliteration on 7 & 8 string guitars, the Nazgûl starts where most passive high output pickups stop. The large ceramic magnet inside serves up aggressive tones for brutal, down tuned chugging riffs. The mid range is just a little more prominent to bring out the definition of the B & F# strings. Don’t fear though, for all the gain and ruthless attack you’re going to give the guitar and amp, the notes will still remain fluid and articulate. Made in a bridge version only, and designed to be matched with the Sentient neck. Offered in 7 & 8 string passive mount with naked coils or black metal covers and Active Mount with exposed adjustable pole pieces. It brings out the best characteristics from any guitar.

Sentient

Built exclusively for 7 & 8 string players, the Sentient neck pickup is the perfect match for natural, complex warmth and tight articulation. Relying on an alnico 5 magnet and medium strength coils, the blend of vintage PAF and modern tones sounds incredible in both clean and high gain settings. No frequency is pushed to give a completely even tone. Use with any 7 or 8 string Seymour Duncan bridge pickup. Offered in 7 & 8 string passive mount with naked coils or black metal covers and Active Mount with exposed adjustable pole pieces. Best with bright to semi-warm woods (from Maple to Korina) with either Maple or Rosewood fingerboards.
