the bridge humbucker is/was a Seymour Duncan Alan Holdsworth prototype.
the singlecoils are Dimarzio SDS-1's :)

it's not an AH1 though ;)
just a AH proto, which equals a JB with
double screw rows :)

Actually, Jake retired the Holdsworth prototype humbucker after the 1st Badlands record and went with a Duncan JB. This pickup was also in his signature ESP guitars and his 2 custom Charvels (Blue/Purple) he used on tour with Ozzy.

more or less is a JB with doublescrews :)

Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB model.


Hey Dean - if you're reading this - what's Jake using for pickups these days?
