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!
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.
