SH-11 Custom Custom

By Tone Chaser

from USA

See all my reviews

Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-11 Custom Custom Pickup:

I have the old Duncan EVH pickup (Evenly Voiced Harmonics) that is now called the Model 78. I love that pickup's tone but it wasn't quite hot enough for me. This pickup sounds just like it but with more harmonics and overall gain. I am pretty sure that Neal Schon uses these in his guitars. These are great for classic rock and a must for Journey tribute band guitarists.
4 conductor wiring, alnico II, overwound

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-11 Custom Custom Pickup:

    Has ALOT of mids, so if you don't mind that or don't mind turning down at the amp, you'll be okay. Definitely less brighter than a pearly gates bridge. It does cure bright guitars. Perfect for classic rock, van halen, ect. I love it

    Brown sound

    By Wokandroll

    from Atlanta

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-11 Custom Custom Pickup:

    This is the tone I've been looking for. I bought this pickup to replace the stock Dimarzio tone zone in my Charvel, I never really dug the overly half cocked wha sound the tz has and I wanted a more "vintage" tone if you will. I spent weeks reading reviews and watching demo's before settling on the CC and I'm much happier with my tone now. This thing nails that old school hard rock rip your face off tone without being overly trebly or mushy at high gain, this has alot to do with the alnico 2 magnets which are much smoother sounding than alnico 5's. The CC also has a very nice clean sound, sweet with just a little extra bite. One side note even though it's standard spaced it works just fine in the bridge with the OFR, just raise the E and e string pole pieces a little and your set. I haven't had it very long but if for some unforeseen reason it stopped working I would definitely buy another one.

    O.K. but...

    By One-BcQWw

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-11 Custom Custom Pickup:

    For my money it's just an O.K. pickup. To my ears, and I've had this pickup in 4 guitars, it doesot have the right mid structure. So far every guitar it's been in sounded harsh with to much mid-treble and a little to compressed For this type of tone go with a Tonerider Rocksong bridge pickup as itsounds really good in almost every guitar plus they are half the price.

    One Of The Best Pickups

    By TremontiISGod138

    from Elgin,South Carolina

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-11 Custom Custom Pickup:

    Ive heard this pickup many a times in the guitarshop downtown and its one of the best to install for just an overall great pickup. The price is unbeliveable for such a great pup. Myles Kennedy uses them in his Paul Reed Smith SC 245. His came covered because you can get them modded that way but you have to go through Seymour Duncan to get them i belive. Great cleans and beautiful tone when put over distortion. Smooth leads and you will hear every note. I guarantee it. Im putting some in my Epiphone Les Paul Ultra and my Aria PE-Studio. Pickup is perfect for singlecut guitars. Cant wait till christman so get mine!

    Great in ES-333

    By BluPup8

    from Melbourne Australia

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-11 Custom Custom Pickup:

    I have one of these in my Gibson ES-333 which is the typical es-335 semi hollow guitar. I find it works really well, better than some others I have had in it. This is the order of pickups in the bridge, all are covered except first one. It has had --- Gibson 498T (uncovered), Tonerider Rebel90, Gibson '57 classic plus, the Seymour SH-11, another Gibson 498T (covered) and straight back to the SH-11. This is a fairly hot pickup but without a lot of darkness that an AlNiCo V magnet can bring. It also has plenty of definition when overdriven.

    from Saint George, UT

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-11 Custom Custom Pickup:

    I put this pickup into the bridge of a Squier Tele Custom, replacing the stock pickup.This pickup is like a PAF type of tone but is nice and hot with plenty of output. It's a rather compressed sound with lots of highs and mids and less bass than most PAFs though. There is good note separation on chords, clean or distorted. Clean, this pickup is bright but not shrill. Distorted this thing kicks butt. Lead work really cuts through and pinch harmonics come out easy.The only thing lacking is that chunky-ness on palm mutes but I use my middle or neck position for that.If you want a hot, bright (not shrill) tone that distorts really well, try this one out. I love this pickup and now I wanna switch out my neck pickup to match it better.

    Warmoth Custom Guitar

    By Aaron Recine

    from Los Altos, CA

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-11 Custom Custom Pickup:

    I love this pickup,i have it in my ibanez,and in my warmoth H x H custom stratwith floyd. It's paired with an alnico 2 profor the neck. It is fat and mean and I have itwired for series / parallel.This pickup powers up your guitarwithout blowing it up like an Invader.It is just a straight up good pickup,better than any stock pickup for sure.

    Great Pickup for Bright Guitars

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-11 Custom Custom Pickup:

    I used this pickup in a Hamer back in the '90s and just recently installed it for a customer in his affinity series strat. Both times I was equally impressed. This pickups just "works". Distorted rhythm and lead tones are easy to get, harmonics are excellent, and, best of all, this pickup sound great on the clean channel. If you're looking for a replacement for a bright sounding guitar, this is IT!!!

    A really powerful pickup that has its mids turned up to 10. Very bright. I prefer the 59 custom hybrid which is a little warmer, but a great, clear pickup nevertheless.

    Not Quite That Good

    By The Grape Skeletons

    from New Jersey

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-11 Custom Custom Pickup:

    Very, very midrangey pickup. In my Ibanez SZ, it sounded like being stuck in a tubescreamer. Not enough highs for me. Definately no lows. I was disappointed. Distortion was "flubby" for lack of a better word, and compressed. Positive note: it sounds great in a mix, very warm and present. But it's not all that fun to play, unless you really like that "Money for Nothin'" sound-.

          I purchased this pickup for my 2005 Mexi Strat (maple back, rosewood fretboard, Alder Body) and it sounds great.

          I wired it for one volume only, no tone, and no other pickups. One Humbucker in the back and one volume knob.

          Works great for Rock and Metal.

          Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-11 Custom Custom Pickup:

          My goodness. Let me just say that this is simply the best pickup I have ever played on. It's madness how good this pickup is. For anyone who is interested, Joe Trohman from Fall Out Boy uses these babies on his signature Washburn Pilsen Idol. It has the right amount of power, sustain and everything I ask for in a good tone and a good pickup.

          Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-11 Custom Custom Pickup:

          I have an Ibanez RX240 H-S-S guitar that I originally installed a JB bridge in. The JB is an excellent bridge pickup (I have one in my ESP and it RULES) but it was too bright. After a lot of research, I found out that my guitar is maple, hence why the pickup was way too bright. So I slapped this pickup (the trembucker version) into my guitar. WOW! This pickup sounds like a perfect reproduction of the guitars used on heavy-yet-vintage songs like Day Tripper by the Beatles, and can cover CCR and other hard rock songs great! I love how it sounds: like a vintage pickup with increased output. It's an excellent pickup, and I highly recommend it for taming a bright guitar.

          I just purchased the sh-11 and it is awesome!!!! I play music like Metallica, MegaDeth, Slayer, and PanterA. It is perfect for songs like fade to black and Sanatarium. Also the SH-11 is awesome on distortion! I love playing both my SH-11 and my Dimebucker simultaneously it gives me a signature sound. So if You like metal get one of these for your bridge, Because I said SO!

          By Bad

          from California

          Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-11 Custom Custom Pickup:

          The clean has a bit of bottom end however its clarity is beautiful and nice still and better than most stock pickups like the one it just replaced! When distortion is turned on it?s like it says, very close to Eddie Van Halen sound heck to close if you ask me! It seems to actually have a bit of resistance, everything is so crisp and perfect when playing with hi gain or any other setting that its perfect for classic rock and even some forms of metal but not necessarily anything to much harder than Heavy Metal since it doesn't have the grind of it. I play Zeppelin, Tool, and tons and tons of Van Halen, this pickup is for you guys~

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Seymour Duncan SH-11 Custom Custom Pickup:

          If you are looking for a bucker for a strat then you have found it. It is sweet as honey with plenty of output in the mids. The bass and highs are there, but never overpowering. I have tried way too many pickups to mention in a strat bridge, and this one is the best all around. It even sounds cool when you back off the volume, as it has that sweet strat thing at all volume levels. Do your strat a favor and try it.
