Seymour Duncan Pickups - It's all about tone!

Seymour Duncan's SH-12 George Lynch Screamin' Demon was designed in the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop specifically for metal guitar legend George Lynch. So what does a metal master like Lynch look for in a pickup? Big tone reminiscent of a '59 Model with a touch of percussiveness gives you a sound with plenty of growl. The SH-12 George Lynch Screamin' Demon utilizes a row of slotted screws along with a row of allen screws for a more airy, open tone. The SH-12 George Lynch Screamin' Demon is perfect for any genre.

Seymour Duncan SH-12 George Lynch Screamin' Demon at a Glance:
  • Sound
  • Complete setup

Designed in the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop for guitar legend George Lynch, the SH-12 Screamin' Demon has the big open sound of Duncan's '59 Model with a little less bite and a little more growl. The tone is big, percussive with a defined treble response that doesn't get harsh. It uses one row of allen screws and one row of standard slotted screws for a unique "airy" sound, and comes with four-conductor hookup cable to facilitate more complex pickup-switching situations.

Complete setup
Ths SH-12 Screamin' Deamon is recommended for use in the bridge position, and is often paired with a moderate output neck pickup like the SH-1 '59 for P.A.F. tones. The SH-12 is designed for balanced and warm instruments, and works especially well with rosewood fingerboards.

Screamin Demon!!

I've been using this pickup, since 1988. I install these in the bridge of every one of my guitars. I always combine this with the 59 in the neck and I get both with a reverse zebra, black/cream coils. The Demon is an amazing PU!! I love that it sounds huge, yet articulate and full of harmonic overtones. I run my guitars through an old Laney AOR 100 watt head and 4X12 cab. the tones are sweet, yet bite and growl. If you roll the guitar volume down, it cleans up. I can hear the pick attack which opens the guitar up more, sonically. Try one, you'll love it!!

Could George's Tonal Taste Really Be Wrong?

I have both used and installed this pickup in many guitars. What I love about this pickup is it sounds BIG, but when you roll the volume back it cleans up and sounds sweet. It is more of a medium output, but with today's amps packing so much gain, you really don't have to hit the front end all that hard anyway. As with the Pearly Gates, this pickup is VERY articulate, so your shred chops had better be up to task as this pickup hides NOTHING. But if your hands are up to task, go for it! You won't be disappointed

Seymour Duncan Scearmin Demon Pickup

It breaks up more than the Jackson pickup I had in my '84 Charvel Model 1. the Demon is not as hot but in some ways is. Hard to explain...Great sound. Much more distinction between notes. You lose a little low end, but not sure yet how that will play out at high volumes as I haven't yet gotten together with the guys for rehearsal. So far, I likey!

Seymour Duncan Screamin' Demon TB-12, awsome pickup.

The only reason I didn't give it a 5-star rating, is nothing's perfect. That being said, this pickup comes darn close. Warm, articulate, chimey. Cleans up nicely when you roll the volume back. Great tones in both series-humbucking and parallel-humbucking. even the single coil tones are decent, (but not great.) Not a high-output pickup, but that's what give's it the warmth and growl. Try one.
