The company teamed up with Fralin Pickups to design a humbucker with note clarity and focused mids that's based on Fralin's Unbucker.

Scottsdale, AZ (November 17, 2017) -- Mad Hatter Guitar Products is excited to announce the release of the Mad Hatter Super Shredder humbucker pickup to their amazing product line.

Now covering the full spectrum of guitar electronics, Mad Hatter Guitar Products has teamed up with Fralin Pickups for their first set of pickups.

The Mad Hatter Super Shredder humbucker pickups were designed to have incredible note clarity and be very responsive. The pickups have focused mids that sit perfectly in the mix, and double-screw coils that have no volume loss and sound like a true single-coil.

Starting with pickups that Mad Hatter recognized as a benchmark, they developed a criteria as to what the Super Shredder humbucker pickups should be. Working with Lindy Fralin and starting with the prized Fralin Unbucker as the base, the Super Shredder was born.

The Super Shredder humbuckers are available exclusively at and available in Black, White, & Zebra with the choice of Nickle, Gold, or Black screws. Black and Zebra are available in both standard and tremolo spacing. White is available in tremolo spacing.

The Super Shredder Humbucker Pickups are priced at $174.99 per pickup.

On Black Midi's Cavalcade, Geordie Greep’s fretwork is an example of the 6-string as a capable component as much as a solo instrument, never completely stealing the show.

Popular music and mainstream tastes may be more fractured than ever, but the guitar continues to thrive.

As we soft launch into the new year, I’m not waiting for the requisite guitar obituary in the news. It’s not going to happen again anytime soon. Why? Because as far as the mainstream media is concerned, our beloved instrument is not only dead, it's irrelevant to the point of not even being an afterthought. When the New York Times published their most recent albums of the year list, there was barely a guitar-based recording to be found. Still, there is not only hope, but also cause for jubilation.

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
