Seymour Duncan FLATV1 custom pickups
Josh's signature pickup set from Seymour Duncan features a vintage-style neck pickup with slightly increased output to adhere to Josh's exacting tonal specifications. The bridge pickup is constructed with a mix of different types of alnico magnets to best match the tone that Josh has relied on for years and is able to capture guitar sounds that are both bright and fat.

Gotoh F1803 bridge with Gotoh/Ibanez co-designed 'in-tune' saddles
The Gotoh F1803 bridge improves sustain and tuning stability. Made of titanium for maximum clarity, the saddles are equipped with grooves that actively prevent each string from slipping to the side. The saddles also feature rounded edges and deeper grooves on the first and sixth strings, which means much less saddle tilting is required to adjust the string height and equal string spacing is more easily achieved. Additionally, the saddles are designed with pre-calculated 'intonation points' where the string touches the saddle, allowing each string to maintain precise intonation. The 10.5mm string spacing allows for easy picking across strings.

Specially-designed control plate and knobs
