Current Pricing for the Five Most Popular Seymour Duncan Humbucker Sets
This table displays pricing for the five most popular Seymour Duncan pickup sets, according to Sweetwater. Currently they are all humbucker sets, since single coil pickups are typically limited to just Strats and Telecasters. Prices are current as of Sun, January 29th, 2023.
Note that all of these prices are based on active Sweetwater retail and are subject to change. If you want to see pricing from multiple vendors for a particular pickup, click on the link in the table and that will take you to the product page with additional pricing tools.
Types of Seymour Duncan Pickups
Humbuckers are by far the most popular type of Seymour Duncan pickup, as we've already mentioned. As with most pickups, they come in three forms:
- Humbucker (dual coil)
- Single coil rails (packs of three for Stratocasters)
- Single coil Telecaster sets
Typically it'll make more sense to compare single coils to other single coils and humbuckers to other humbuckers, unless you have a guitar that uses both. For example, some of the Ibanez Prestige electric guitars have two humbuckers, with one single coil rail in the middle.
If you want to mix and match, you can always buy one pickup from a set, instead of the entire set.
Most Seymour Duncan pickups are also rated for neck, middle, or bridge positioning.
Which Seymour Duncan pickup is the best?
We'd recommend most of the humbucker sets, though the Invader is our personal favorite, for the tone quality and the value you get (it's fairly cheap). If you want a less aggressive pickup, the Pearly Gates set is another great choice, though it's typically more expensive than the Invader.
