Great balance between distortion and clarity

Comments I replaced the Active EMG 81/85 with a passive Seymour Duncan JB/59 in my Jackson SLSMG Soloist. That should tell you a lot right there. At over 16k, this is a pretty high pickup for being a passive giving the JB some serious output. Keep in mind, the wood and hardware used plays a major role in the sound the JB produces!
I've noticed darker woods tend to sound richer and fuller compared to lighter woods which produce more treble and bite. Also the higher your volumes and tones are, the more power/distortion is produced! This can either make or break this pickup depending on the kind of sound you're searching for.


Liked about it If your playing cleans or distortion, the JB is crystal clear, warm and Smooth; This pup adds character! You can also split the JB into a single coil which makes it very versatile. since this pup has a good amount of treble, pinch harmonics are done almost effortlessly and sound amazing! At the end, the JB sounds amazing when everything on your amp is CRANKED UP!


Didn't like You either like this pickup or you dont! There is no such thing as "this pickup is better then that one" Its all based on personal preference! As far as you metal players, instead of going for a JB/59 setup. Skip the JB and go 59/Jazz. They compliment each other very well and IMO more suitable for metal. Personally, I would recommend the JB for Hard Rock, blues/jazz and not for heavy/death-metal and Thrash.

A top notch pickup

Comments When I heard my First Jb pickup, I was like "oh my god", it's simply the BEST pickup I've ever tried. With the Jb the key word is definition... there's a lot of it, and I like it, you can hear clearly every "click" of your pick thru the string (I play mostly with Hi gain tube amps, so that's very important to me, also harmonics came out naturally in a nice way. I use it for metal mostly, you can hear every down stoke riff so clearly, it's amazing. It's also a great also for classic rock, indie, hell you can play any style with this pickup!
For me it's THE bridge pickup.


Liked about it Extreme definition with hi gain(very clean sound)
Nice harmonics
Versatility


Didn't like Nothing

Good pickup, but not for me.

Comments The JB is very common pickup and sounds good in many setups. I've owned a couple of these over the years, one was installed in an alder body Kramer, and the other was installed on a mahogany Ibanez. I'd have to say I preferred it in the alder body. Though, that guitar also had a maple neck, and was quite old. It had a nice balanced tone in the alder body. Lots of output, no muddy low end, or shrill high end. My second attempt with the JB was in a mahogany Ibanez RG. I didn't like it at all in this guitar. The guitar had a maple top, maple/rosewood neck. I just found it muddy, fuzzy and had an annoying midrange sound to it. I know enough to say though that this is not because the pickup is a bad pickup or anything, it just didn't work well in that guitar.


Liked about it Good amount of output, nice high end. Price was good, installation was very simple. I'd possibly buy it again, for another guitar.


Didn't like There's nothing to really not like. It's a preference thing. It'll either work for you in your setup or it won't. There's nothing wrong with it in any way. Some people prefer Dimarzio or other brands, some like Duncans. I'd say try it for yourself and decide.
