Seymour Duncan Pickups - It's all about tone!

For cleaner, more articulate tones, the SH-2 Jazz Model is a perfect fit. When placed in the neck position of a guitar, you're treated to classic humbucker tones that reach far beyond the "Jazz" moniker implies, including country, blues, funk, and heavy rock. The SH-2 Jazz Model excels on fast runs up and down the neck, and it's natural tone allows it to easily match up to virtually any bridge pickup. With the sheer amount of tones available, guitarists of any ilk will find the SH-2 useful.

Seymour Duncan SH-2 Jazz Model at a Glance:
  • Sound
  • Complete setup

The SH-2 Jazz Model inherent sound makes it a great choice for fast runs. The brighter tone has slightly less output and is a good match with most bridge pickups. When distorted, the tone is full and bright with smooth sustain. Compared to the SH-1 '59 Model, the Jazz has slightly less output and a more detailed treble response. The SH-2 comes with four-conductor hookup cable to facilitate complex pickup switching configurations.

Complete setup
Often a SH-2 Jazz is placed at the neck, and is paired with an SH-4 JB (Seymour's favorite combination, and he knows a thing or two about pickups!) or SH-5 Duncan Custom in the bridge position for diverse tones. The SH-2 Jazz Model works well in balanced and warm instruments, and fares especially well with mahogany bodies and rosewood fingerboards. This versatile pickup also works great with hollow and semi-hollowbody guitars.

Seymour Duncan SH-2 Jazz Model Features:
  • Humbucker

Excellent Pickup

Used in an Epi Les Paul Customer - changes personality entirely from muddy and inarticulate to bell like buttery neck pick up tones with plenty of push through a band's midrange rumble. I'm always incredibly OCD about tone and this meets my demands.
Music background: Professional gigging guitarist

Awesome Pickup

I am a fan of Seymour Duncan Pickups and I have been for many years. every guitar I own has them. I love the Jazz neck model paired with the Duncan distortion in the bridge, great combo.
Music background: 20+ years


nice pickup, great price!

Dr. Seymour is the Fix!

I had a problem. A Beautiful PRS SE Custom 24 30th Anniversary that just didn't sound as good as it could. I knew after I got the guitar that I would be replacing the pickups down the road. I went with a set that I knew would breath the awesome sound that I knew that this guitar was capable of. I removed the G&B stock pickups. They just wasn't as clear and sounded muddy to me. I installed a set of tried and true Zebra Duncan SH-4 JB in the bridge and a SH-2 Jazz in the neck. I decided to not wire in the coil split option due to the fact that I just don't use it and not crazy about single coils except P-90's. WOW...It turned this PRS into a Fire Breathing Dragon. I have a couple of Gibson's and I do know that know matter how good the guitar is and how well it's made, pickups, can make or break. I have used this set in the past and knew that I would be happy with the results. You cant go wrong with these pickups. The JB is screaming and ballsy and the Jazz is warm and clear. I compare these to the 498T and 490R or a 57 Classics and Classic Plus set from Gibson. A great combination from Seymour Duncan. Thanks again to Patrick and the guys at Sweetwater!!

Sweet Sounding Neck Pickup

I replaced the stock pickups in my Epiphone Les Paul with this in the neck and a JB in the bridge. The stock pickup sounded okay clean but thru an overdriven amp it was very muddy. The Jazz is a very open sounding pickup with excellent clarity and note definition even thru an overdriven amp. It's just a great choice for the neck position on a Les Paul
