Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB (Black) Reviews4.8/5.0 based on 3 customer reviews
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!

Whoa, what a difference.I 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.

great pickupHad 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.

Awesome UpgradeI 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 harmonically 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!
