  • I want to see if a JB will work in my Strat - what guitars can I try?

    Can anyone tell me what guitars currently come stock with a JB? I want to play a bunch of them and get a feel for how one will work in my US Strat Ultra (alder body, maple caps, maple neck, ebony board). I am drawn to the JB in large part because it will apparently give me the best Strat tones when split.

    Thanks!!!

    Boss Metal Zone
    Boss Super Chorus
    Dunlop Crybaby
    Ibanez Tube Screamer

    Look at some ESP's and Schecters, alot of them have the JB/Jazz or JB/'59 combo.

      Also, some fender guitars have the JB... some of the showmaster series if I'm not mistaken. And I believe the Jackson USA king V has one too...
      EBMM JPX BFR (Crunch Lab/Liquifire)
      Schecter C-1 Classic (Custom8/Jazz)
      Mayones Duvell 7 Standard (Instrumental SFTY-3/Decomp)
      G&L Tribute Comanche
      Godin Stadium 59 (Custom Cajun/'59)
      Horizon Precision Drive --> Fulltone FB3/FD 2 --> Crybaby From Hell (Fasel) --> Boss BF-2 --> CH-1 --> TC Flashback X4
      Mesa/Boogie Mark IV-B (SED =C= 6L6) + EarCandy BuzzBomb 2x12 (V30/C90)

        Most of the Jacksons with real Duncans use the JB at the bridge. A lot of the U.S. Hamers do also, but they won't be too close to a Strat.

          Schecter, Jacksons, USA Washburns, Brian Moore. Should be good for your strat. Just give it a try. You can always return it.

            Just about any '80s USA Kramers (Pacers, Berettas, etc.).

              The Godin LG Signature has a JB at the bridge and a Jazz at the neck -- bolt-on neck (mahogany/RW), mahogany body with maple cap.

                Schecter just released a whole line of "Blackjack" guitars that have SD's in them- I think all have JBs bridges, but some have '59s in neck and some have Jazz's. I think they even have coil tapping built into their 5-way switches, which is a nice touch.
                Carvin SC90 (Jazz neck, CC bridge)
                Fender Aerodyne Telecaster (stock pups: tele bridge and p-90 neck)
                Ampeg Reverberocket combo
