Product Description

The Seymour Duncan Hot Rodded Humbucker Guitar Pickup 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 favorite humbucker set and is widely used for everything from aggressive blues-rock to metal. Duncan believes that their new Matched Sets 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.

Ever wonder what holds you back from buying new electric guitar pickups? Seymour Duncan did. So they undertook detailed market research to determine the biggest factor as to why guitar players don’t make the purchase decision. It turns out that Duncan’s huge array of pickups (108 different series, at last count) was working for them and against them at the same time. The biggest reason for reluctant guitarists: too many pickups from which to choose.

Recently, Seymour Duncan 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 includes pickups targeted to a specific type of player and their musical taste.
