OVERVIEW

For precise enunciation of those lightning-like jazz licks.

The Seymour Duncan SH-2N Jazz Model Pickup is suitable for musicians 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 Model in the neck with either a JB (SH-4) or Duncan Custom (SH-5) in the bridge.

I put the sh-2 in my 1992 Les Paul and it has the warmest tone. Great on my jazz scales and very clean warm tone. I put the sh-4 jb on my bridge and they smoke together. They are bright loud pickups. If you have a Les Paul I would highly recommend them. I put new Gold covers on so they still look stock, and glad i did. All the other bands wonder why my rig is so hot.

I put this pickup in my 2004 Gibson Les Paul at the neck position. It was quite possibly the worst squire-strat-single coil bridge-sound ive ever heard come from a les paul. it was a disappointment. Maybe mine was defective, but i'm just going with a different pickup now to be safe. This isn't as great as everyone says.

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-2N Jazz Model Pickup:

    Awsome I play metal on the darker side not shure about being in any category. That being said this pickup is beautiful. I have never got as good of tone out of a passive pickup before and I have custom made ones active and passive. I dont think I am the player it was designed for but it is outstanding for my leads and clean tones still brutally dark for distorted rythm. With a sh-6 in bridge ideal combination for most styles of music.

      Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-2N Jazz Model Pickup:

      Replaced the neck HB in my Godin TriplePlay (HS). Stock Godin HB was DOA muddy/muffled sounding.
      Brought the guitar to life, made all 5 switch settings better, especially neck pu alone (SD). Clear, sweet highs and snappy tighter lows. 110% better.

        My Schecter Solo II is awesome. Came in in like 3 days, properly packaged and ready to go. Prices are lower or the same as most websites you're going to find and the selection is pretty solid. If you want to shop with little-to-no hassle, Musician's Friend is a good spot.

          I recently bought an ESP Ec-256 guitar, and while the stock pickups weren't bad, that can't compare to the Seymour Duncan's I had installed. GREAT sound!

              Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-2N Jazz Model Pickup:

              Used once in a set with the JB. The JB was alright. The Jazz was horrible. For a supposed legendary pickup that seems to be very popular it sure doesn't sound good. Of course these reviews are personal opinions. I try a lot of pickups from every brand I can. There are some pickups that I just do not like. This is one of them. The DiMarzio Gravity Storm was about the same for me as this as far as how much I liked them. Horrible. I can't even hardly put my finger on it. The Jazz was muddy, very unclear and had no nice distinguishing characteristics.I don't play jazz so the tones I'm after are probably not what his pickup was made for so maybe thats the problem. Bottom line is, this is one of the worst pickups Ive ever used.

                Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-2N Jazz Model Pickup:

                This pickup is awesome! This is the third guitar I've installed it into. Compared to the typical '59 neck that most Seymour Duncan-equipped guitars come with, the sound is more scooped (a bit less mid range) but brighter and bassier. It can do everything the '59 neck can do and Les Paul neck pickups can do, but it does them sounding a bit more modern. The four conductor wiring allows you to do some "tricks" with it, also. I don't recommend using this pickup in split mode (the output is too low) but in parallel and with a four-conductor bridge pickup, it does a great job. I put this one in my Fender Showmaster and it sounds absolutely fantastic!

                The packaging was horrible and my pickup arrived with one of the mount ears broken off from shipping! MF needs to package these better so that the delivery people can't break them.

                  This is one of the pickups that introduced me to the SD lineup. I've paired it with various brands and output partners and it's always performed as expected (after the initial shock). I don't think it's meant to to be "balls to the wall" or paired with other high output pickups though. I've used it mainly in 2PU configs in the neck position with EMG H4 and Dimarzio Steve's Special for years and it steadily produces an articulate, beautiful sound.
