Seymour Duncan SH-2N Jazz Model Neck : l'avis de tjon901 (contenu en anglais)
« Brighter alternative to the 59 »
The Jazz is another hugely popular neck pickup in the Seymour Duncan brand. It is pretty much the alternative to the 59 in the neck position. It matches up well with just about any bridge pickup but the Jazz and the JB are just about as popular a set as the 59 and the JB. The Jazz features four conductor wiring like most every pickup made in the last 20 years and it comes with an alnico 5 magnet the same as the 59. The Jazz is similar to the 59 but with more bite on the high end. The 59 is so vintage and smooth on some guitars it can get pretty muddy. The Jazz fixes that by added some more treble to the voicing of the pickup. When playing fast leads in the neck position the Jazz will have a clearer sound than the 59. The 59 is more voiced towards slower bluesy leads while the Jazz is better for fast shredding or even jazz. Having slightly less low end than the 59 means the Jazz is less boomy and will have more clarity when it comes to playing. This also means the clean tones are very good. With less low end the high strings in the clean tones will really ring out and do not get overpowered by the bass end strings. This pickup is ideal for people with darker sounding guitars that want a smooth neck pickup but not so smooth it gets a muddy sound. The 59 is so super smooth it can get muddy in the low end. With the Jazz's dialed back lows and increased highs you get the same basic sound as the 59 but with more clarity. If you are looking for a nice clear neck pickup for your dark guitar this matches well with most anything.
