Seymour Duncan Pickups - It's all about tone!The JB Model SH-4 is one of Duncan's - and the world's - most popular pickups and provides the classic sound of a hot-rodded humbucker that we've all loved for the last 30 years. Boasting plenty of output without sacrificing tone and adding the right amount of harmonics, sustain, and distortion, the JB Model SH-4 is great for anything from heavy blues to heavy metal - with an emphasis on heavy! But excelling at aggressive music isn't all the SH-4 can do, as it cleans up nicely providing warm, sweet tones. The JB Model SH-4 is built for great tone!
Seymour Duncan JB Model SH-4 at a Glance:
Classic hot-rodded humbucker sound
The archetype hot-rodded humbucker for over 30 years, the JB Model SH-4 is great for everything from heavy blues to heavy metal. As the world's most popular humbucker, the SH-4 provides slammin' output while retaining singing highs, aggressive harmonics, and just the right blend of sustain and distortion. It easily goes from sweet warm tones to raw rock 'n' roll. Compared to the SH-14 Custom 5, the JB has a stronger treble detail. Some players use it with 250K pots to smooth out the highs. The JB Model SH-4 comes with four-conductor hookup cable to facilitate complex pickup switching setups.

The JB Model SH-4 is recommended for bridge position, and is often paired with a neck pickup like the SH-2n Jazz (Seymour's favorite) for versatility or a SH-1 '59 for P.A.F. tones.The SH-4 is for balanced and warm instruments, and works especially well with rosewood fingerboards.

Whoa, what a difference.
by Steve from Lancaster, PAI stuck this along with a Seymour Duncan Jazz Neck in my Epiphone Les Paul. Output is a bit higher than the Jazz but easily handled by the pots. The JB has just enough heat, and is easily adjustable... read more [+]. close [-]

by from at homeHad one installed in my Ibanez and it is great. Even the coil tap sounds good like a real single coil. The pickup is crunchy and cleans up during solos.

by Ryan Johansen from Auckland, New ZealandI installed this into an Epiphone Dot and my guitar just came alive.It makes the old pickups sound incredibly dull, like they were covered with pillows! It's got a full tone that is clear and harmonic... read more [+]ally rich. Great for rock or blues with attitude. It loves overdrives, fuzzes and distortions. It can also clean up well. It is a pretty versatile pickup. A great place to start with your hot-rodding antics! close [-]

Is it any wonder why this is Seymour Duncan's best selling pickup, and has been for many years? This pickup has just the right amount of mids poking through the signal, nice highs without the "icepick in the ear" effect (with the right potentiometers), and nice tight bass. The JB is Duncan's best selling pickup because it sounds good whether you're doing hard rock, funk, chicken pickin', or blues!
