Seymour Duncan SH-8 Invader Humbucker

Seymour Duncan

Sold out.


Ultra high output humbucker built for aggressive playing styles. Recommended for punk, garage, thrash, metal and other heavy rock styles.


Designed for the heaviest tones a passive pickup can produce. The combination of three ceramic magnets, over-wound coils and twelve black oxide cap screws make the Invader an electrifying force of energy. The wide magnetic field pumps power into your amp with a totally heavy sound. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable.

Complete Setup

Available for both neck and bridge positions - most commonly used in the bridge position. The Invader neck pickup has considerably reduced output for tonal versatility.


For all instruments. The wide pole pieces work for both humbucker and Trembucker string spacing.

Available Mods

7-string version. Colors (humbucker spacing).


Troy VanLeeuwen / Queens of the Stone Age (bridge), Mike Chlasciak / Halford (bridge), Whitey Kirst / Iggy Pop (bridge), Rick Jackett / finger eleven (bridge), Will Adler & Mark Morton / Lamb of God (bridge)
