Seymour Duncan Hot Rodded Humbucker Set Black
Seymour Duncan put two of their already excellent humbucker pickups together for the Hot Rodded set. The SH-4 JB is all about hot and heavy output; putting it in the guitar’s bridge position really cranks out the juice needed to get those blues licks wailing in the mix. Meanwhile, the SH-2n Jazz Model humbucker offers a smoother and more nuanced tone; in the neck position, this pickup offers a glassy, smooth tone that nicely balances out its more aggressive co-pilot. Both pickups are vacuum wax potted to prevent any squeals of feedback during performance. Although the approaches that these pickups provide may make them seem as though they are the Odd Couple of guitar sounds, their combined effort is great for blues, a playing style that requires a wide range of versatility, from screaming, bellowing theatrics to more contained and subtle moves.
