The Seymour Duncan Jazz pickup is for players who need an accurate, clear tone for fast jazz runs. The brighter sound has slightly less output and is a good match with most pickups. A popular combination is The Jazz™ in the neck with either a JB™ (SH-4) or Duncan Custom™ (SH-5) in the bridge. Four conductor cable.
Seymour Duncan Jazz (neck) Description
Provides an articulate and clear tone. Great for fast runs. The brighter tone has slightly less output and is a good match with most bridge pickups. When distorted, the tone is full and bright. Smooth sustain.
Compared to the SH-1 ‘59 Model, the Jazz has slightly less output and a more detailed treble response. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable.
This is the Neck Position version. Often a Jazz neck is paired with an SH-4 JB (Seymour’s favorite combination) or SH-5 Duncan Custom in the bridge position for diverse tones.
For balanced and warm instruments. Works especially well with mahogany bodies and rosewood fingerboards. Also works great with hollow and semi-hollow body guitars.
