Jeff Beck Seymour Duncan

I always heard the J/B refereed to Jeff Beck. Well I called Duncan the other day in regards to a wiring problem and somewhere in the conversation the J/B came up and the employee at Seymour Duncan told me it doesn’t stand for Jeff Beck… Its stands for “Jazz” and “Blues”! He went on to say on there website under the SH-4 JB description/specs they don’t even list him as a user of the pickup. In fact not one of his signature Strats even uses Seymour Duncans let alone the SH-4 JB. Nor does his signature Gibson Les Paul 1954 Custom that Musicians Friend has for 25,000.00! Yes, thats 25 thousand not 25 hundred!

application
High output single-coil-size “rails” humbucker. Great for everything from heavy blues to heavy metal.

description
This twin coil design pickup gives you the character of our popular JB™ model humbucker in a single-coil size. Its adjustable pole pieces more closely emulate the magnetic field of a full size humbucker and allow you to fine tune the balance of your strings. You can expect great harmonics and a sweet high-end. Compared to Hot Rails, the output is reduced and there’s more treble response. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable. USA Patent No. Des. 355,207.

complete setup
Available for both bridge and neck/middle positions; and in an incredibly versatile set with an SJBJ-1b JB Jr. in the bridge, an SDBR-1n Duckbuckers in the middle and an SL59-1n Little ’59 in the neck.

guitars
For all well-balanced instruments. Works equally well with maple and rosewood fingerboards.

available mods
Choose white, black, cream and parchment housing.
