Unhappy Frank Falbo is leaving Seymour Duncan

Just finished talking to our good friend Mr. Frank Falbo and he told me some news that I feel we should all know.

Here's the thread on the SD Forums - but here's his post on there.

Welcome Our New Sr. Manager of Product Development - Seymour Duncan User Group Forums

Who remembers that?! It has been a wild ride but now it is time for me to move on!

I think we've been able to release a lot of amazing things since that thread. from P-Rails to the Liberator, Blackouts Modular Preamps to Deja Vu's and Double Backs. Zephyrs to 59/Custom Hybrids, Alternative 8's to YJM Fury's, Mick Thomson Blackouts, and Alnico II Pro Slash. Antiquity JB/Jazz, additional Stack Plus models, to Blackouts for Bass and the NYC..

Then there are the experiences, from flying to Yngwie's house to going to Slash's studio to sort out his signature pickup, to playing with Seymour to open up for Steve Miller at our 35th anniversary benefit concert. Drilling for a Multi-Source install while James Taylor bear-hugged his guitar for me, hanging with Seymour and MJ every week, hearing their great stories to stuffing my face at our stomach-stretching pot luck lunches. Repairing Angus' #1 and #2 guitars, modding Gus G's ESP's, I could go on for days.

While I can not say what is next, I promise you it will be exciting. Of course I was a forum member before I was your product VP, that won't change.

As for Seymour Duncan, they have always been committed to listening to their customers. That won't change either.. Your voice is powerful. Keep telling SD what you want. They are listening!
Thanks a lot for your efforts and work at Seymour Duncan especially from us extended range guys - wishing you all the best in your future adventures.

That's sad to hear. Well all the best to him, some great stuff has come out over the years and I hope it continues for Seymour Duncan and for him personally.

I always appreciated that he maintained close contact to the customers. Didn't he organise some custom pickups for ss.org
members? And he always gave good advice, too

Damn that does suck. Wonder what Frank will be doing in the future? It was nice having someone who was on the inside posting directly on the forum. Thanks for the heads up Mesh!

Wow, best of luck to what he wants to do now. He has always been a likeable guy, and has always been helpful, his replacement will have big shoes to fill.

Good luck Frank I say

RIP Seymour Duncan









all jokes aside, I'm curious where Frank is headed now, he's always been one I enjoy to hear news from.

Sad news, Frank is great and he seems to be tuned in to what the average player wants. His demo videos on YouTube are always fun to watch, too.

Leave no stone unturned until I'm done.

So he's the guy I should've asked if they'd do 7 string P-rails in the custom shop

Sucks that he left, hope they keep moving forward.

Well you can still call up SD and talk to MJ at the custom shop and ask that.

Too true, just would've been convenient. I'd forgotten phones possessed that ability >_>

BUUUUUUMP!!!!

Thanks for the kind words here, guys. I did see them awhile back, but for various reasons couldn't jump in on the discussion.

Although it does not contain djent, here's one of the things I've been working on for the past several months. Just figured I'd share. I promise I'm working on other things that are djenty, that I will be able to reveal over the next 3-9 months. But for now, this:

Stuck at work, so can't really want your video about things (see satelite internet in the middle of nowhere = dial up

Acoustics though, interesting (and better than anything 'djenty' could ever be). Not that I play em myself, for comfort reasons.

Guitar techs are for sissies.

Learn some damn music theory, don't complain, and you'll be a better person. -Schecterwhore

Show me a truly awesome guitar for under $1000 and I'll show you hateful lies.
