The saga of Jason Becker and Seymour Duncan spans decades, beginning in the late 80s when Jason approached us with a new humbucker design. Jason wanted 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 dream of. Years later, the opportunity came for us to make Jason’s vision a reality.
The Perpetual Burn is made for endless tapping, wide bends, complex chords and intricate single note passages. And while Jason’s signature pickup is the consummate shred machine, its medium output and voicing make it perfect for other demanding styles, ranging from progressive rock to fusion and beyond.
Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the Perpetual Burn passive humbucker pickup comes with 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, is vacuum wax potted for squeal free operation, and is available in standard humbucker and Trembucker spacing.
