Product Description

Never one to limit himself to a single guitar, Billy insists on the same humbucker tone he knows and loves in his ‘59 when he plays anything else. So, after a call to La Maestra, Maricela “MJ” Juarez, a new pickup set was born. All the fat, P.A.F. tone and Texas hot-sauce sizzle of Billy’s favorite was recreated in a pickup that will fit in any Strat-sized single coil route—proving tone as big as Texas can come in deceptively small packages.

The Red Devil for Strat set features three unique pickup winds, with specially calibrated Alnico 5 magnets. The bridge is wound like an extra spicy P.A.F., with enough meat to beef up your Strat and provide the fat tone of Billy’s #1. The neck and middle step back the heat a little and brush on sweet, smoky blues—ideal for cleans, rhythm, or lead.

Seymour Duncan Billy Gibbons' Red Devil Pickup Set Features
  • Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA factory
  • Uses Alnico 5 magnets
  • 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options
  • Vacuum wax potting for squeal-free performance 
Everything is bigger in Texas—and it’s hard to imagine a bigger tone than Texas-born Billy Gibbons’ 1959 Les Paul, Pearly Gates. When you have a good thing, more of it is better too.

Two Reviews in One....Red Devils and MojoTone 5 Way Blender
Product Rating

Product Review

Let me begin this review with some history. In the past 25 yrs I've owned 6 Strats. None of them worked for me. Mexicans, American Standard FSR, Indonesian, and an American Deluxe w/S1 switching and none of them ever had the mojo I was looking for. I chalked it up to just not liking the tone of single coils, although I tried. I had done pup changes with 58s, 57/62s, Noiseless N3s, Quarter Pounders, cheap A5s...tried them all and eventually got rid of them all those strats. Finally a few months ago I went for a '96 "under the bed" mint American Standard. Really sweet guitar, but still.....no mojo. I bought a set of these Red Devils, MojoTone Blend 5 Way Strat Blender, and a reverse "Jimi" pickguard. Put it together yesterday. First off....this is not a Gibson LesPaul sounding Strat and I never intended it to be. I have four LesPauls, one SG, an Epi Casino, an Epi AlleyKat, and a Tele with humbucker sized P90 and a wide Range Humbucker in the bridge..so I got that tone covered. I wanted something different, and what I've ended up with was a Strat that has P90 growl with the silence of humbuckers...something short of a miracle? (love P90s, one of my LesPaul customs has them). And the MojoTone blend, (not my first, I had them in a couple of the other stats I mentioned) fits these pups perfectly 250k pots, .47 cap, and a treble bleed. (if you check SD wiring, this is what they recommend for these pups anyways, and it works. I'm use to the 500k, .22 set up) I wish I could post pics of the build here, but I can't. So do yourself a favor and if you're like me and just can't get around single coil...go with this. You'll love it. I do, I finally have a Strat that I want to play for more than just one song. Oh and yes the build was easy, way easy....... all you need is some soldering skill to connect the pups to the blade switch, ground, and included output jack.

I replaced with a upgrade for a more bluesy sound and very proud of my results... I needed the pick ups quickly for a important gig and AMS got them to me the next day before the gig....

Les paul tone is a strat

Product Review

Finally a set of pickups to make a strat sound like a les paul. Well worth the money. No other pickups compare. My strat has tone it never had. Installed in a black strat with red tortoise pickguard and rosewood fretboard. Pickups are white. Awesome look.

I wired them up to have single or humbucker sounds with a push pull Pot. With a 5 way switch now I have 10 tones!
