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!

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.

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!!

Great pup

Great pup! As always Duncan delivers...Not too bright in the bridge of my strat. Really nice sounding and full. VERY clear and articulate. Allows for expressive playing! I'd buy more but I don't need another as that guitar is the only one I've been playing!

Great Bridge Pickup

I ordered this along with a Jazz for the neck to replace the stock pickups in my Epiphone Les Paul and I couldn't be happier. I originally decided to replace both pickups because I found my neck pickup to be terribly muddy thru an overdriven amp and I figured while I was replacing it I might as well replace the bridge pickup too even though I wasn't unhappy with the stock bridge pickup. I'm glad I did because I didn't know just how much sound I was missing with the stock bridge pickup, the JB just really breathes life into the sound compared to the stock pickup, there's a new found richness that wasn't there before. Like I said, I thought the stock pickup sounded pretty decent until I got the JB installed and heard what my guitar sounded like thru it. You can't go wrong with this pickup

It's so popular for a reason

I haved used, and actually have this pickup in three different guitars with three different woods and the one consistency with this pickup is that it sounds equally great with all three. Even though it is high output, it does NOT get muddy like some high output pickups do. Note definition is incredible, and this pickup cleans up nicely.

Great sound

I have a Epiphone les Paul standard..had it for years thought I would spice it up and get some new pickups so I went with the sh-4 in the bridge and sh-2 in the neck (zebra) while the stock pickups gives a full sound it can be a little muddy as well..With the Seymour Duncan's they r brite and clear for the clean sound and airy and very raw sounding but still clear hearing every note ring out with a tube amp..can't go wrong for the price..Rock on
