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.

Worth every penny
What is your opinion of this product?
You can never go wrong with Seymour Duncan. The Hot Rod set was the perfect addition to my Jim Root Tele to give me both twang and gain for my classic rock band, thanks to the 4 conductor wiring. These allow me to use one guitar for 95% of our setlist. Acquired a Schecter super Shredder and dropped a set of these in it to as my backup guitar. Seymour Duncan = pure greatness in my world.

Great Rock Pickup Set
What is your opinion of this product?
Nice clarity and articulation with good output. Distortion is full and not blurry and when tapped has a great single coil tone. Nice upgrade to any stock pickup set.

Great Versatile Pickup Combinationi
Yes.
I've only had them for a couple weeks, so I can't say for sure. However, I use Duncan's in alot of my other guitars, and those have always stood the test of time. If not Seymour Duncan has great customer service and tech support so I have no worries here.
Your general opinion of this product.
I got this set with nickel covers and put them in an ES-335. Really versatile pickup combination that gives me very thick warm tones from the neck for clean stuff. The bridge is just an all around good lead pickup for rock, blues, whatever. It has good clarity from the bass, mids, and treble, but still warm.
They feel like magnets wound with wires, then placed in a metal case.
Dark and smooth, like Will Smith. The Jazz is thick and mellow, the JB is thick and kinda hot but not high output, like Scarlett Johannson.
The nickel covers give a classic vinytage look.
Pickups don't really have action, except for flying springs when you're mounting them.

best pick-up combo upgrade
Excellent-clarity,definition and sonic punch
Your general opinion of this product.
I put these in my epi ulra II with a coil tap, they turned a very good versatile guitar into a fire breathing monster. This guitar is the league of a guitar that costs three times as much now. The best 130 bucks you can spend.
