Designed in the early 70s, the JB Model humbucker is our most popular pickup of all time, and is the world's most popular humbucker. It adds juice and versatility to the bridge position of any humbucker equipped guitar. With its hot coils, and alnico 5 bar magnet, this pickup delivers an unmistakable upper midrange attack, a tight, articulate low end, and harmonically rich highs that can really sing. The JB is the perfect bridge pickup for anything from blues & country to the meanest hard rock & metal. Often paired with the Jazz neck model for the ultimate Hot Rodded humbucker set.  Compared to the SH-14 Custom 5, the JB has a stronger treble detail. Because of this, some players use it with 250K pots to smooth out the highs, though slightly rolling off 500K pots will accomplish the same thing.
Hand built in our Santa Barbara, CA factory, the JB Model uses an alnico 5 bar magnet, nickel silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
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.
For balanced and warm instruments. Works especially well with rosewood fingerboards.
