Seymour Duncan Releases “The Gilly” Guitar Pickup

There are many ways to pay a tribute to a fine artist. If I were such a remarkable guitarist as Billy Gibbons, a guy who deserves all the respect, I guess I would like something like Seymour Duncan did to him. The company is releasing a signature pickup which was “designed to capture the magic of Billy Gibbons’ legendary Tele tone, but with a fuller and smoother voice.”

Not happy in only paying a tribute to Billy, Seymour Duncan named it for Billy’s wife, one of the most important women in his life. So, I present you “The Gilly Tele Stack Bridge Pickup.”

The Gilly Tele Stack Bridge Pickup offers:

– All the goodness of the classic Billy Gibbons Tele tone, with a new wind and Alnico V magnets for a fuller, smoother sound.

– The stack design ensures noise-free operation, even at Texas-sized gain levels.

Cost: $ 160.00

    Seymour don’t make nothing for the sake of just making it…if Billy approves of the Gilly it’s alright with Willie.

    Just installed this Gilly baby in my metallic Tangerine MJT tele using the 4-way switch mod (bridge, parallel, series, neck) and love it. Matched it up with a Frailin uncovered Blues Special neck pup and yes, an unconventional tele, but one that has very unique and special tones while still having tele feel and personality (if that makes sense?). I have a Fender 50’s Road with stock Tex Mex pickups that has some terrific tone and great bark and a Fender Highway One with DiMarzio Twang King bridge pup and True Velvet neck (this is my classic tele with classic twang and sparkle). You might say I’ve got some pretty wide tele sounds covered now! He he. Love it. Life is good.

    I own a PRS McCarty and I am very anxious to see what it sounds like in it! I’m calling GUITAR CENTER today to see if they have the pickup!
