Application
"P.A.F. on steroids" tone. Used for classic rock, heavy rock, funk, punk, R&B, metal and drop-tunings.

Description
Beefed up Patent Applied For tone for a hard-driving, kickin' sound with the right balance of power, sustain, and distortion. This pickup cuts through with a distinctive high end and midrange attack. The ceramic magnet and custom coil design give it compressed dynamics, an enhanced harmonic structure, and a punchy bass. Perfect for dropped tunings without "mushing" out. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable.

Complete setup
Recommended for bridge position. Often a Duncan Custom is paired with an SH-1 '59 in the neck for bigger P.A.F. tones in the bridge and vintage-correct P.A.F. tones in the neck.

Guitars
For balanced and warm instruments. Works especially well with rosewood fingerboards.

Available mods
Nickel or gold-plated cover. Trembucker. 7-string version.

Players
Mike Chlasciak / Halford (bridge), Whitey Kirst / Iggy Pop (bridge), Rick Jackett / finger eleven (bridge), Will Adler & Mark Morton / Lamb of God (bridge)

Good pick up in the right guitar
I tried this in my all mahogany warmoth LP and I wasn't that happy with it. I feel like in a brighter guitar it would sound much better and be very versitile, but I haven't tried it yet. The good thing about this pickup though is it's a great pickup for magnet swaps. If you're not happy with it, swap in an alnico 5 and you've got the Custom 5. Put in an A2 and you've got the Custom Custom. And for awesome power and tone try an A8. But in the right guitar you may not even have to do anything to it. It just didn't work for me in my guitar.
