Seymour Duncan Releases Signature Wes Hauch Jupiter Rails Pickups

A passive rails set with a ceramic magnet, stainless-steel rail poles, and tons of output.

Santa Barbara, CA (July 23, 2020) -- Seymour Duncan, a leading manufacturer of pickups and pedals, announces the release of the Wes Hauch Signature Jupiter Rails humbucker pickups for 6-string neck and bridge.

In 2019, we partnered with powerhouse metal guitarist Wes Hauch to craft the Custom Shop Jupiter 7-String Rails bridge humbucker. After receiving overwhelming praise from extended range players and countless requests over the last year, we’ve developed this brutal pickup in a 6-string version and created a perfectly calibrated neck pickup to accompany the bridge as well.

To facilitate the articulate and aggressive tones he’s known for, Wes requested a passive rails humbucker set with searing output and maximum clarity and balance. Built with dual stainless-steel rail poles, a ceramic magnet and a finely tuned high output wind developed closely with Wes, the result is the Jupiter Humbucker Set – a 6-string passive pickup pair that delivers aggressive mid-range attack, evenly balanced string response, and focused clarity. It won’t make you play like Wes, but it will help you cop his tone.

One of the best benefits of being a musician is that musicians know musicians, and musicians are the most interesting people you’ll ever meet. Albert Einstein, Charles Dickens, Georgia O’Keeffe, the Marx Brothers, Clint Eastwood, Jeff Bridges, Juliette Lewis, Jack Black, and Zooey Deschanel are or were musicians, albeit not full-time.
