Application
The archetype hot-rodded humbucker for over 30 years. Great for everything from heavy blues to heavy metal.

Description
The world's most popular humbucker. Provides slammin' output while retaining singing highs, aggressive harmonics, and just the right blend of sustain and distortion. 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. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable.

Complete setup Recommended for bridge position. Often a JB is 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.

Guitars
For balanced and warm instruments. Works especially well with rosewood fingerboards.

Available mods
Nickel or gold-plated cover. Trembucker. 7-string version. Available in matched set of SH-4 JB Model bridge and SH-2n Jazz Model neck.

Players
Paul Stanley / KISS, Gary Rossington / Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ty Tabor / King's X, Steve Marker / Garbage, Nick Hexum & Tim Mahoney / 311, John Connolly / Sevendust, Dave Mustaine / Megadeth

The classic hot rodded do it all pickup - almost
The JB was first Duncan I ever tried, 20 year ago and I've been a fan ever since. This is a great pickup for nearly all styles of music, but I think it excels for heavy rock and metal. In my all mahogany guitar I didn't care for it that much, but in my basswood guitar with maple neck it sounded amazing. I've heard people say it's great with maple guitars. I would think any balanced or bright guitar would be perfect with a JB. The JB picks up harmonics and squeals very easily and have a great singing lead tone. It will cut through in a band situation very well. There's a reason it's the best selling pick up. I love the JB but I'm giving it a 4 because it didn't work as well as I hoped it would in my LP. Also sounds cool with A8 and A2 magnets.
