Gibson Burstbucker Pro vs. Seymour Duncan SH-4


Recommended Posts

I think I hear a little more top end out of the BurstBuckers particularly on the rhythm chord parts. The SD has a bit more low end and fewer highs to my ear. Construction wise there is a world of difference in these two pickups. The JB has twice as mant windings as the Gibson.


I will say that all the subtle tone differences in pickups and guitar wiring in general start to fade away as you run through higher and higher gain. In other words, the more gain you use the less your pickups matter in regard to tone.
