                  The PGn is a much better jazz pickup than the SH-2 Jazz. I want to fight whoever wrote that article. Pillow fight, at least.

                    Yep it is great. I have a guitar with JB/Jazz, another with Full Shred set and another one SSL-1s. The Full Shred neck pickup is like in the middle of the SC and HB sound, it is great all around neck pickup so it can do good cleans, mild overdrive rhythms and of course great lead sounds, it really has a single coil vibe. In an HSH guitar I would prefer Jazz in the neck and leave the clean rhythm to the SC just because the Jazz can give you a thicker sound, but in an HH one I would choose it the Full Shred neck easily.
                    Who took my guitar?

                          Jazz neck with a rough UA5 is great in a maple cap PRS. Still crisp but a little bit liquid.

                            Or... a Jazz with an A2 (making it an A2P).

                              Definitely an odd couple. I've tried JB's several times and they didn't work for me. I prefer pickup sets that aren't so night & day. When I joined this forum 15 years ago, there were debates raging about the JB back then (& for years prior). Many members have said that it can sound very different depending on the guitar it's in, usually doing best in Strat-type guitars. When it bombs out, it seems to happen in mahogany, although there are JB's that work well in mahogany guitars.

                              That's why the debate will continue. If you use it in Strats and play metal, there's a good chance you love it and think critics don't know what they're talking about. If you play other genres in Gibson-type guitars, you may have had a bad experience with a JB and suspect proponents may have a hearing disorder.

                                I have the Jazz in an all-mahogany LTD. At first I didn't like it, but I have grown to appreciate what it can do with the tone knob at about 5. It's not warm to me at all, but bright without being icepicky. Very articulate.
