The SH-2 Jazz Model inherent sound makes it a great choice for fast runs. The brighter tone has slightly less output and is a good match with most bridge pickups. When distorted, the tone is full and bright with smooth sustain. Compared to the SH-1 '59 Model, the Jazz has slightly less output and a more detailed treble response. The SH-2 comes with four-conductor hookup cable to facilitate complex pickup switching configurations.
Often a SH-2 Jazz is placed at the neck, and is paired with an SH-4 JB (Seymour's favorite combination, and he knows a thing or two about pickups!) or SH-5 Duncan Custom in the bridge position for diverse tones. The SH-2 Jazz Model works well in balanced and warm instruments, and fares especially well with mahogany bodies and rosewood fingerboards. This versatile pickup also works great with hollow and semi-hollowbody guitars.
