Seymour has a deep interest in guitars at a young age. After lending his instrument to a friend and recovering it with a broken transducer, Duncan decided to scroll it, using a rotating music player to navigate the sensor around his axis and wind the wire around his spool.
After this incident he was very inspired by the result, the sound of the guitar changed so much for the better that he continued to expand his knowledge of the pickups from guitarist-inventor Lester Polfus (Les Paul).
Developing his skills, Duncan got a job at the Fender Soundhouse in London, where he began working on instruments and simple flutes for many famous musicians such as Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page. After some time after returning home, he decided to set up a pickup scrolling service.
