    I can honestly say, it sounds amazing. I own an Ibanez SZR720. The stock pickups just weren't cutting it, so i put this in the bridge! This added just the right amount of punch without sacraficing a nice clean sound. It really has amazing tone! Its a nice mixture of Bass, mids, and highs all together, with a main focus on the mids and highs but still no sacrifice in bass for those metal riffs. In detail, the lead channel is tight with definition in every string in each chord. Depending on the amp and distortion you use, it gives you a great heavy rock to metal sound. For the clean, it doesnt really distort or give you too much crunch. It's actually pretty clean. Coil-split its good for country, otherwise, its good for anything. Its really a great pickup all around, you wont be dissappointed no matter what you put it in! The SH-5 sounds amazing ANYWHERE in ANYTHING! I highly suggest it to anyone!

  • Awesome!

    As reviewed by Axe2Grind on 8/15/2007

    Wow, I installed this thing in my Fender HSS and this pickup rocks! The out put is just enough, but not crazy and over the top. The tone is nice and thick, harmonics are awesome, and the sustain seems to go on forever. I own a Les Paul, Ibanez, and Fender and two have Duncan pickups, and one DiMarzio(Ibanez). It's just an opinion, but I think Duncan makes the best PUP's out there. DiMarzios are quite good, but I plan on putting Duncans in that Ibanez soon! The Alnico Pro II's in my LP are just as awesome as this SH-5. Way to go Duncan, you guys builq awesome stuff!! Thanks!!

  • Brilliant pickup.

    As reviewed by khawaja Jodat on 8/7/2007

    I bought it in 1985 & got it fixed at the bridge position of my Yamaha Studio Lord SL400S (Les Paul copy 1980). After replaceng it with the stock Yamaha pickup I noticed a remarkable change in the overall sound quality of my guitar. The sound became very much pronounced, punchier and penetrating. I got its wiring arranged in the Parallel/Series manner by drilling a hole near the guitar pots cavity area & installed a small toggle switch. In the Series mode its gives elevated midrange boost perfect for solo with lot of sustain and punchier chord work as well. In parrallel mode its sound becomes more clear and bright with a little decrease in power and I again found it very useful for both solo and chord works if you need more presence and crispy bright sound. This pickup has a cermaic magnet and so its sound is not that warm and creamy as compare to Alnico magnet but it is not harsh & I find it very impressive for any style of playing. Its works very well with any amp at clean or dirty sound settings and especially do wonders with the overdrive and distortion effect pedals.
