For nearly four decades, the legendary JB Model has been the ultimate hot-rodded humbucker. A truly modern classic.
Designed in the early 70s, the JB Model humbucker is our most popular pickup of all time. It adds juice and versatility to the bridge position of any humbucker equipped guitar. With its hot coils, and alnico 5 bar magnet, this pickup delivers an unmistakable upper midrange attack, a tight, articulate low end, and harmonically rich highs that can really sing. The JB is the perfect bridge pickup for anything from blues & country to the meanest hard rock & metal. Pair with the Jazz neck model for the ultimate Hot Rodded humbucker set.Hand built in our Santa Barbara, CA factory, the JB Model uses an alnico 5 bar magnet, nickel silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
