When Seymour Duncan released The Nazgûl and Sentient & Pegasus set for 7 string guitar I doubt even they realised how incredibly popular these pickups would become. The Sentient & Pegasus combination have almost become the defacto neck and bridge combination respectively for modern metal players. So it really comes as no surprise that Seymour Duncan are making these pickups available in 6 string versions.

You no longer need a 7 or 8 string guitar to enjoy the ruthlessness of the Nazgûl or the enhanced dynamics and string separation of the Pegasus.

“The Nazgûl was developed for extreme metal players who required a massive and aggressive tone that still maintained plenty of articulation. The Pegasus was developed for prog and modern metal players who needed plenty of aggression but required enhanced dynamics, more harmonic richness and defined string separation so individual notes don’t get lost in the mix. The perfect compliment to both these pickups is the Sentient neck pickup which is also now available in a 6-string version. It’s voiced to capture a blend of vintage PAF and modern tones with enough output to deliver harmonically rich distorted lead tones but subtle enough to give you deep, detailed cleans. Think of it as combining the best qualities of the ’59 Model and the Jazz: clarity, detail, depth, attack and expression.”

Each pickup is handwound in Santa Barbara, California with a black bobbin, black screws and a black logo.
