Seymour Duncan Acoustic Woody Now Available in Walnut or Black

Seymour Duncan Acoustic Woody Now Available in Walnut or Black

With the new addition of the Black and Walnut Woodys, your favorite acoustic will sound as good as it looks.

Nashville, TN (July 11, 2013) -- When looking for a high-quality, easy to use and affordable acoustic guitar pickup, the Woody has been the choice for many guitarists looking to capture the full warmth and richness of their instrument. It snaps easily in and out of just about any soundhole and features a 14' studio quality cable that can reach across most cafes. Up until now the only available color was maple, but many acoustic guitar players have asked for the ability to get the Woody without having to sacrifice the look of their favorite acoustic. With the new addition of the Black and Walnut Woodys, your favorite acoustic will sound as good as it looks.

Aside from the three color options, the Woody is available in three different versions to meet the various needs of acoustic guitarists. The Woody SC is a single-coil acoustic pickup that produces a crisp natural tone with no 60-cycle hum. The Woody HC is a full hum-cancelling acoustic pickup that picks up more of the natural warmth and richness. And the Woody XL features adjustable pole pieces for finding your perfect balance from string to string, and it brings more richness and articulation out of your tone thanks to its stacked design.

The session ace’s signature model offers a wide range of tones at the flip of a switch … or five.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. Not long ago, I came home late from a band rehearsal, still overly excited about the new songs we played. I got myself a coffee (I know, it's a crazy procedure to calm down) and turned on the TV. I ended up with an old Bonanza episode from the ’60s, the mother of all Western TV series. Hearing the theme after a long time instantly reminded me of the great Al Caiola, who is the prolific session guitarist who plays on the song. With him in mind, I looked up the ’60s Epiphone “Al Caiola” model and decided I want to talk about the Epiphone/Gibson Tone Expressor system that was used in this guitar.

Embracing the idea of an acoustic flattop made with anything other than wood can, understandably, be tricky stuff. There’s a lot of precedent for excellent-sounding acoustics built with alternative materials, though. Carbon-fiber flattops can sound amazing and I’ve been hooked by the sound and playability of Ovation and Adamas instruments many times.
