  • Help: JB or Custom SH5/TB5

    Im playing music like Jason Becker, Marty Friedman, Van Halen, Greg Howe...etc. I'm looking for a bridge pickup and i've decided it has to be a JB or Custom, but i don't know which will work best for my needs, i need a pickup good enough to get "that crunch". But i don't want get a super screamin' pickup that messes all up. Please recomend me which one will be better according to my music playing.

    The best thing you could do is to try them out. Go to your local guitar center or Schecter dealer and try out some is a link to which schecters use which Duncans. Try them out...only you know what tone you are looking for.

    Hand-crafted electric guitar pickups, acoustic guitar pickups, bass pickups and pedals. Helping musicians find their signature sound since 1976.
    I would love to have a battle of wits with you....but you appear unarmed!!

      I've had both. I prefer the Custom. To me it has more nuts, but thats not to say the JB is bad! I just prefered the Custom. The SH5 is a little thinner sounding than the JB in my guitar( washburn NX6 paduak) but just has more of everything else. Just my experience. Hope it was some help.
