More vintage with less distortion.

The SH14 Custom 5 Humbucker Pickup was developed by visitors to the Seymour Duncan web user group who replaced the ceramic or Alnico 2 magnet in an SH-5 Custom or SH-11 Custom Custom pickups with an Alnico 5. Compared to the SH-5 and SH-11, the Custom 5's tone is more vintage, with less distortion, but it's still very strong and powerful. Clean sounds are rich and full with enhanced presence. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable. Like a higher output '59 Model with a deeper bottom end and expanded output. Perfect for pop, country, blues, classic rock and heavy rock. For balanced and warm instruments. Works especially well with rosewood fingerboards.

  • Great clean tone.

    As reviewed by Jake Fenix on 9/18/2009

    I have these beauties on my Schector Blackjack. Not only does it give my guitar a perfect shredding distortion, these pickups will also give you a clear, clean tone. If you want to be able to play the overdriven metal licks, and still be able to play those clean blues riffs, these pickups are for you.

  • less output than the 59 in the neck

    As reviewed by STEPHEN MILKOWSKI on 4/16/2014

    I have an SG standard and based on reading the 'reviews' I placed a 59 in the neck (sounds great) and was told by folks at GC store to place the higher output JB in the bridge. I opted for the SH14 based upon a few reviews of what would work best in an SG and should have went with my guitar teacher and GC employees recommendations on a higher output SD. The SH14 has noticeably less output / gain in the bridge than the 59 I placed in the neck!! A clear difference! I had both professionally installed and both are working properly. I should have gotten a higher output SD in the bridge to complement the 59 in the neck. My guitar is now limited in the types of songs I can play and will take out the SH 14 for a higher output SD in the bridge. Lesson learned. Try before you buy !

  • Custom 5 = tone to die for

    As reviewed by Prtnrglf on 9/21/2006

    The Seymour Custom 5 might be the 'perfect' humbucking pickup. The pickup has enough output to create that dirty or 'brown' sound with ease, while allowing the articulation of higher frequencies that all high-output humbuckers lose in the mud. Humbuckers are a funny breed - too low output prevents the edge that most are looking for and too high output creates nothing but mud. The Custom 5 is one pickup that hits the bullseye in that it produces the crunch but allow a player to roll off the volume a bit on their axe and produce that bell-like tone. It's no suprise that some of the most expensive USA made guitars are equipped with the Custom 5 as standard issue.
