For nearly four decades, the legendary JB Model has been the ultimate hot-rodded humbucker. Blues, country, fusion, punk, hard rock, grunge, thrash; the JB has always sounded just right, even as new genres emerged around it. The low end is full and powerful, the highs are crisp and detailed and theres an upper-midrange bump that adds crunch and chunk to heavy chords but translates to a singing, vocal-like quality when you play single notes or solos. Meanwhile the hot output pushes your amp just that little bit harder for more sustain and harmonics. Use it with a 500k volume pot for great high-end cut, or try a 250k pot to sweeten and soften the tone for smoother styles.
It pairs particularly well with the Jazz or 59 neck pickups, and some players even like to use a JB in the neck position for an extra-fat solo tone. Hand built in our Santa Barbara, CA factory, the JB Model uses an Alnico 5 bar magnet, nickel silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options like series, parallel and split coil, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance. SH-1n 59 Model (single conductor) Neck.
Its designed in the spirit of the original P. Humbuckers of the 1950s, with sweet sustain, full-sounding chords, clear and bright attack, but weve made a few refinements to slightly modernize the design and make it more adaptable to different styles. The 59 has a full low end which is great for adding character to your clean sounds and sustain to your leads.
The high end is slightly boosted for improved pick-attack clarity and the mids are a little scooped for an open, smooth sound thats great for preserving the clarity of the individual notes in a chord. Play softly and the mids and highs seem to fade back, but pick hard and the note will be confident and clear. There isnt a genre that the 59 cant work within.It pairs nicely with a high output bridge humbucker like the JB or Custom but is equally at home with more moderate pickups like the 59 bridge. And its a popular choice for those with humbucker-routed Telecasters as well. And if you order a four-conductor version for coil splitting, its single coil mode is crystal clear. It comes standard with a long-legged nickel silver bottom plate, vintage single conductor braided push back lead wire and no logo.
