    Default Seymour Duncan JBL and JBJ hbs

    i recently bought a bunch of pups in a lot, and there were 2 SD HBs included; one has a sticker with JBJ on it stuck to the back, and the other has one with JBL on it. both had the SD logo stamped on the back. i couldn't find anything like it on the SD site and am interested to know what model they are, how old, and what they might be worth. thanks.

    Your JBJ is a JB wound by Maricela Juarez before she joined Seymour in the custom shop. How cool is that?

    Thanks to bruceberry for posting and Evan for replying on this topic. I was looking through some of my guitar parts for a humbucker to load into my Fernandes Strat copy. I knew I had some old SD's from some trades way back.

    If the info in the previous posts is true, I am one very happy dude. I have just foound a JBJ, JBL, 59NJ & 59NL.

    My old DD was wound by MJ...I thought that was real cool!

    Who is the L in JBL? I should have asked this when I was on the shop floor some years ago.
