  • Interesting old Duncan?Godin FAQ.

    That's supposed to be Duncan/Godin.

    I was looking through my archives, and found this:

    Jazz II? Custom Custom Custom? A3 maybe? Never heard of a Jazz II.

    I am guessing that the bridge is a C5. I don't know what a Jazz II is, however.

      Could be. The date stamp on that pic is Jan 2011. I know the C5 was around long before that. So definitely possible. But they make it sound like something unique, rather than a production model.

        I found this on our forum, from Evan Skopp:

        The Jazz II was a advertising copy mistake in the Godin FAQs. I think they knew it was the SH-2 and somehow, Jazz and SH-2 got combined into Jazz II. But they're the same pickup.

        The "Custom Custom Custom" or "Custom Custom Plus" was the forerunner to the SH-14 Custom 5. Same pickup. Custom or Custom Custom with an Alnico 5 magnet.

          Cool. Nice info. Always leave it to Evan to clear things up. I miss him around here.

          On a side note, the C5/59 was the first Duncan pickups recommended to me in this forum over 20 years ago. But a 59 can lean towards a little muddy in the neck. The C5/Jazz could be a perfect solution to that classic pairing.
