The Seymour Duncan AHB11S Gus G Fire Blackouts Guitar Pickup System was created for Ozzy Ozbourne guitarist Gus G. The Gus G Fire Blackouts system is an active pickup set with the looks of traditional passive pickups but the tonal character of Seymour Duncan Blackouts pickups. Achieve HUGE tone and HIGH output with the organic feel of passive pickups.
Seymour Duncan includes two humbuckers and a high-output, low-noise Blackouts dual preamp that replaces one of your volume pots. Uses a bare-wire lockdown system, so no soldering is required if replacing active pickups. Includes three 25K potentiometers for players migrating from a passive setup, plus all necessary hardware.
‘This system combines the massive tone, kick, and distortion of Blackouts with the rich tone and expressive feel of my favorite passive pickups,’ says Gus. ‘It responds perfectly to all my picking techniques, and more of my personality comes through than with any active pickup I’ve tried.’
