SD's and Billy Gibbons' "Pickle Jar" Pickup
Does anybody on here have any clue what kind of chaos is happening in this image? Did seymour find a new blend of sauce that has some kind of magic in it?!

This image was posted on Seymour Duncan's twitter page with the text:

"Tune in next Tuesday when Seymour and MJ talk about working with Billy Gibbons and the story behind Billy’s “pickle jar" Pearly Gates."

Looks like Seymour and Billy decided to test the integrity of their pickups by putting one in a pickle jar to see how long it would take for it to quit working. The pickup was put in there in 1978. As per Seymour's page, "It still works"!

Yuck! I feel sorry for the person who had to put that in their guitar... I hope they got the smell out!

I'll stick to paraffin and beeswax for now I think...

He needs to put in this stuff https://store.davesgourmet.com/Produ...oductCode=DAIN I reckon it should last about 10 seconds
