In 1974 Seymour Duncan gave Jeff Beck, his friend, a guitar. A telecaster with re-wound P.A.F. humbuckers from Lonnie Mack's Flying V. Seymour called this guitar the "Tele-Gib", and the bridge pickup "JB". Jeff used this guitar on his 1975 release, Blow By Blow and made the JB bridge become very popular very quick. Many guitarist in England wanted the mod for their guitars and sought out Seymour. The Seymour Duncan JB had an increased output (15.4K Ohms) without sounding too harsh or dark like other pickups in that era. It's this humbucker that gave Seymour his reputation as a pickup designer and also started the history of Seymour Duncan.
