What we say:
Seymour Duncan are perhaps the most famous brand of guitar pickups in the world. Since the 70s, Seymour and his team have hand built an ever-increasing range of premium pickups for electric guitar, bass and acoustic instruments.
Seymour Duncan use the best copper wire and magnets to create their pickups. Models range from recreations of vintage classics to, more often, original design pickups that bring a whole new world of sound tho the musician. All styles are catered for, from 50s pop to traditional Jazz right through to the most aggressive modern metal.
Changing pickups in your guitar is the quickest and most cost effective way to alter or upgrade your sound. Seymour Duncan will almost certainly have a pickup that’s perfect for you with a level of quality that’s unmatched.
Best overall humbucker set ever? Maybe! It’s hard to beat the selection of a bridge position JB and a neck Jazz: these two pickups cover so much sonic ground, you could see massive leaps forward in your tone just by changing out your pickup set to these…
Apparently this combination is Seymour’s personal favourite and we fully understand why. The Jazz is actually a relatively bright humbucker with articulation and depth, allowing a lot of your playing personality to shine through. We’d actually suggest that naming it ‘Jazz’ is a little misleading since it can do so much more. There’s smoothness, for sure, but also bite and sustain. It’s a vintage output pickup that brings out a beautiful clean tone from your guitar.
The JB is a no-brainer for the bridge position. High output but full of character, the JB ignites a fire in your tone and makes playing loads of fun! Harmonics fly, chords crunch with muscle and lead nots zing out beautifully. Between the two pickups, there isn’t much you can’t do!
Revitalise any two humbuckered guitar with this outrageously good set.
So, the Santa Barbara-based pickup manufacturer released their most popular pickup models in pre-matched sets, to take the guesswork out of determining which pickups work well together. The initial release of matched sets included the following, each targeted to a specific type of customer and their musical taste:
Hot Rodded Humbucker Set matches an SH-2n Jazz Model for the neck position with and an SH-4 JB Model for the bridge position. This is Seymour's favourite combination and is widely used for everything from aggressive blues-rock to metal.
Duncan believes these new offerings will take the guesswork out of matching complete retrofit sets of guitar pickups. All of the pickups in the matched sets are hand built in Duncan's Santa Barbara, California workshop and include all necessary mounting hardware and wiring instructions.
