  • Seymour duncan sh5 in Bridge and sh1n in neck of SG?

    I want the sh1 59N in the neck. How about a sh5 custom in the bridge? Some recommend the sh14 custom 5 in the bridge with the 59n. To my ears the sh14 sounded too shrill based on utube vids I saw. I go from cleans to hard rock. what's ur opinion?Thanks

    I have an SH5 in the bridge of my LP, my Dad has a '59 in the neck of his Sheraton.

    I like both pups, I'm not sure how they would sound combined. The '59s are a little gritty, the SH5 is smoother and rounder. If you have them both laying around, there's no reason not to try it out. Otherwise, I would highly recommend SH5/Jazz combination. 59s are supposed to be SDs version of the Gibson '57 Classics but I honestly think SH5/Jazz is closer to that sound.

      I'm a sh11 kinda guy myself. Probably my favorite bridge pickup of all time.

        Interesting that they are considered the SD version of Classic 57's . I have no experience with sh5's myself.

              sh-5 is a great hard rock pickup but if you don't want a bright humbucker i would go for something else. a lot of people love the sh-11.

              i find the sh-1 a little underwhelming in the neck. the sh-2 seem to have a little more character and definition

              i think sh-11/sh-2 would be a great combination

                I have a SH-13 in my bridge.If you're looking for a hard rock tone you can't beat the Dimebucker.i also have a '59 in the neck of that guitar.Perfect balance IMHO
