    Excellent Pickup

    By Jamie-k4j9m

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB Humbucker Pickup:

    I recently bought a Suzuki Les Paul (discontinued now, but if you can find one, look past the motorcycle namesake and judge it as the great guitar that it is) and was looking to replace the stock pickups, which were unimpressive. I got this put in the bridge with a Duncan '59 in the neck, and new 500k pots. Wasn't blown away playing it through my Ampeg B50R (bass amp) or through my tiny Marshall practice amp, but today I got a chance to play it through a proper amp (a 100 watt Crate). One word: WOW. What a difference an amp can make! I like to play Zeppelin and Floyd stuff, and just general overdriven blues, and this pickup can give me any sound I want. Completely balanced tone, and sustain is unbelievable. I closed my eyes and let a sustained note feed back (amazing), and for a second, I thought I was Jimmy Page. Then I realized I wasn't...no matter, though, because this pickup is awesome, and will see me through any amount of skill that I may someday develop. Chances are it will do the same for you. Highly recommended.

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB Humbucker Pickup:

    This pick-up rocks! I recently bought an Epiphone Les Paul jr. and got this pick-up with it. It sounds great w/ distortion, or clean. (don't use clean very often) Plus, it has amazing tone. It's perfect for punk or metal.

    I recommend this for anyone!

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB Humbucker Pickup:

    I enjoy this pickup very much. It has great sustain and is a piece of heaven no matter how you play it. I bought a Schecter C-1 Blackjack which has this pickup in it. It rocks my world with an excellent clear sound with perfect harmonics. I recommend this for anyone who plays an electric guitar. You can put your amp on a clean model and get real jazzy, or you can go Dimebag and rip it up! If you wanna hear it, go to the Seymour Duncan website and listen to some sound clips, or check out a guitar that has one in it. YOU'LL LOVE IT! I have no choice but to give it a big 5!

    Good All Around Pickup

    By Gunter-8Stxq

    from Charlotte NC USA

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB Humbucker Pickup:

    When I first bought these pickups, I couldn't wait to cut up the pickguard on my start and plop them in. These pickups are some of the best I have ever heard. Lots of bottom end, and a lot of highs. Very clear sound, and some of the best distortion that I have ever played. I love the tone and I would recommend this pickups to anyone.

    cool

    By t-lvSFo

    from Virginia VA

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB Humbucker Pickup:

    I just bought this humbucker and I was in a frantic craze on how cool it was. It gives the most crisp distortion I've ever heard. I recently put it in a strat I was building and it was perfect by itself. It really didn't need the other pickups. This is the best pickup if you are looking for crunchiness, crisp distortion, or clean sound.

    very nice pick up

    By Joel-TNGrj

    from taranaki, new zealand

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB Humbucker Pickup:

    When I got my standard Jackson gat, the pick ups weren't anything flash, but I liked everything else about it, so I upgraded. I asked a few people and they all said this pick up is great, and they were right. It is a very warm pickup, goes excellently with single coils, making a very warm clear tone. When you stand on your stomp box, the distortion is just amazing. Nice low end, and sharp highs, along with fat sounding mids, an awesome all round pick up.

    The SH-4 JB is the most well rounded pickup I have ever used.

    By Richard N.

    from Orlando, Florida

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB Humbucker Pickup:

    I've been repairing and modifying guitars for over 20 years. Until Seymour Duncan came along, the Gibson "humbucker" was the only act in town worth talking about. Aside from the Fender "Strat", which has a sound characteristic all it's own, You can take ALMOST any decent dual humbucker guitar and fit it up with a pair of Seymour Duncans and you are ready to "Smoke"! I even took an inexpensive Yamaha PAC112M (Strat knockoff) and installed the SH-4JB in the bridge position with a switch to split the coils: position #1 is the single coil and position #2 is the double humbucker. The end result is a guitar that sounds like a Strat, and with a flip of the switch, Bingo...a Gibson SG.
