  • Anyone have any details on this JB?

    Hello all. Got a Jazz/JB combo in a Burny LPC I picked up a few weeks back. Buyer couldn't tell me anything beyond 'they're Duncans' but the JB has the following label underneath:



    Not metered it up but it's a two wire. Sounds great with gain but a bit high output for me so probably not a keeper. Any details would be appreciated anyway.

    Thanks.

        Stock SH-2 label and covered.



        Messaged the SD insta but not had any reply yet so thought I'd poke the hornet's nest here before asking again.

              Looks to be one the best possible JBs there are. Either Antiquity or Concept Set with Antiquity label. If it's Antiquity, it's rough A5. If it's Concept Set, it's A2.

                The thing that would concern me is that "prototype" is one word. I would assume that the Custom Shop can spell.

                  Prototype is one word, we build spell them and build them all the time, so yes, that is weird.

                  The other sticker on the pickup that seems to be scratched out with a pen is weird though, at least to me, but I don't have any experience with the custom shop.

                  *EDIT* Definitely looks like Seymour's sig based on the other posts, looks like a cool find whatever it is.

                      No serial number imprint which means post '81, but from the aging I'm thinking early 80s. Good aging though! No neck breaks or real damage but had a refret and new nut at some point so I'm not being precious about keeping it original. Pickups sound good, I'm just a low output kind of guy I think.

                        I'll put it "on the list". Bwahahahah

                        But interesting. The Concept set was an A2? Just a mag swap or something else?

                          Thank you! I've gone through the various JB articles on that poster's website and I gather it's an A2 version of the JB, possibly a limited edition model, or if it's custom shop then available as the TeleGib pickup. That's interesting - no idea where the previous owner would have got those as it's been in the UK for a good while and he didn't seem into pickups enough to be making custom orders. Will likely stay a mystery but fascinating read either way.

                            concept set was a2 bridge, a5 neck. the antiquity sticker is what makes me a little unsure of which it is.

                              Not sure the sticker is actually scratched out - I think that's Seymour's signature.



                              It is kinda odd that prototype is separated into two words though.

                              Personally I love JBs for their lead tone.But I've never been able to get them to clean up well enough to suit me.
