Twin-coil design pickup gives you the character of the 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: a first for a humbucker this size. You can expect great harmonics and a sweet high end.

I was looking to replace the rather tired (and anemic) stock pickups in an old Charvel Fusion Deluxe. I bought the guitar new in 1990 and after playing it for a few years, I set it aside as my interest drifted to other guitars in my stable. I pulled it out after ignoring it for years and decided to try and breath new life into it. The guitar had two slanted slots sitting side by side in the bridge position...with two single coils...basically where a humbucker would be normally. It's an odd configuration that is rather uncommon, even with Charvels. I thought about having the slot routed for a humbucker, but then I came across the JB Junior. I bought two, one black and one white and mounted them. The results were astounding. This guitar SCREAMS now. Sparkling highs and thundering crunch. I have them tapped in separately (like the stock pickups) but when they're both "on", it's almost like having dual humbuckers in the bridge position. I'd recommend this pickup to anyone considering it.

Muddy

I enjoy Seymour Duncan products but I thought the JB Junior was a muddy humbucker. It tended to lack tone with no clarity in the midrange. I was disappointed.

Comments about Seymour Duncan JB Jr Pickup:

it is a great, well rounded pickup that cleans up nicely, but will growl, squeal, scream, and shred with the gain cranked. One word of caution: Just like with the Pearly Gates, if your right/left hand technique, and synchronization aren't up to task, this pickup will let you know with a quickness. It is VERY articulate, even in high gain situations.
Dropped it in the bridge position of one of my many strats and viola, I now have the versatile guitar I wanted. This pickup is very close in tone and output to the JB I have in one of my Jacksons, and is hotter than the Pearly Gates in my Big Apple Strat. The tone is similar with just a little more upper mid than the PG, but is every bit as articulate. just used it to record some Dropped D rhythm tracks and can say that this picjup does NOT mush up! Cleans up pretty nice too. If you like to do pinch harmonics, tapped harmonics, or my fave, Touching the side of your picking hand ring finger as you pick a note (you get some WILD squeals), this is THE pickup.
It's a Syemour. Need I say more?
Seymours are a little more expensive than Dimarzios, but after using both brands, I find them to be superior.

    Comments about Seymour Duncan JB Jr Pickup:

    Sounds so close to the full sized JB, that nobody but me can tell.....And you don't have to butcher your Strat! I used my Strat for a country / blues style band, and never used that twangy bridge pu anyway. Now i'm in a rock/metal band and needed a second guitar for alternate tunings. After waiting way too long I decided to try the JB Jr out in my Strat. It compliments my Jackson Dinky with the big JB quite well. The trained ear can still hear the "Strat", but, this thing rocks out nice. I'm thinking about putting one in the neck position too.

          This pickup sounds amazing!!
          Upgraded both the neck and bridge pickups on my MIM Stratocaster to a set of JB Jr's...

          Others have said that these pickups are overly trebly and that is simply not the case..
          Seymour Duncan recommends switching your tone caps from the stock .022uf to .047uf which will tame the highs quite nicely..

          I went with no-load pots to allow me to take the tone circuit out of the mix if I so want, and I still find that they sound incredible..

          You can't go wrong with a Seymour Duncan product..

          More like noisless single coil

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Seymour Duncan JB Jr Pickup:

          This is prety much a noisless single coil. It's hot like a humbucker but doesnt give the metal fatness sound. It has good output and palm muting but its overpriced. It sounds awsome on clean channel though. I don't recommend for bridge it would be better in neck or middle. Also for those trying to upgrade a squire get a full sized humbucker and get a shop to cut out the pickguard. squires are already cut out for humbuckers. I found that out when I had already bought it.

          Comments about Seymour Duncan JB Jr Pickup:

          I love this pickup, use it in the bridge of my american std strat. I have it coil-tapped with a pull pot on my volume knob. Sounds similar to a 498T but not so nasally. Cleans up nice when you back down your volume knob, that may because of the value of the volume pot anyways highly recommend it for any hard rock application.

          3 YEARS STRONG

          Comments about Seymour Duncan JB Jr Pickup:

          I bought this 3 years ago and stuck it in my old Martin Stinger ST2. I was amazed how clear it sounded on clean and dirty channels , but the output was lower than I expected. So I played on. A month ago my Martin finally died and wasnt worth rewiring , plus , it weighs a 100 pounds because of the plywood body. I took out my pups and wired them into a Silvertone project that had some new 500k pots installed 6 months before. To my amazement , the output that was missing had shown up!!! This pup is strong through true 500k pots . I dont use heavy distorion , just clip off the top with a classic DOD 250 O/D pedal. Its works great with that. Man what a difference. Just keeps gettin' better ! P.S. Forget the hype. This pick up does exactly what it is designed to do. No more/No less... Try one

          MF send me the wrong style JB Jr.

          By Don't give a damn.

          from Alabama

          Comments about Seymour Duncan JB Jr Pickup:

          I know the JB and the JB Junior to be pretty well-built, with a nice tone and decent output. My gripe is that MF sent me the wrong style. The JB Jr. shown on the website is an "old rails" style (which is what I need), but MF sent me the "new rails" style which is NOT shown on the website. The "new rails" version is completely molded within a plastic casing and will only mount properly in a Strat-configuration guitar. The "old rails" p'up style can be mounted in just about any guitar. It's a good product -- I'm just pissed that they sent something totally different than what the website shows.

              I had no problem installing the new pickup coil. Basic soldering skills are all thats needed. The instructions were easy to follow and I was finished in no time at all. The quality of the sound was improved and I am very pleased with the result. I would recommend the upgrade to anyone.
