squealing Seth lover Duncan pickups


Recommended Posts

Hey guy's,


i have a question for you all out there? Is there anything I can do to stop my pickups

from squealing so bad? I have a new set of Seymour Duncan Seth Lover pickups

installed in my Les Paul Custom 68 reissue. The amp I have is a Marshall JVM

100 watt half stack. The pickups really sound awesome, great vintage tone, but

when i turn the volume up, these pickups want to sqeal or feedback?


I know I could get get them wax potted, but wouldn't that take away from the pickups tone?

Are thereany other options to check out here?


Thanks so much for everyones help!

Yes... your choices are:


Have someone competent pot the Seth Lovers in wax for you


Replace with a set of pickups that is wax potted already


Use a lot less gain on the amp (or stand very far away from it). [biggrin]


Have you removed the covers? That can help.
