Seymour Duncan® JB™ humbucker
The 84 Alder is powered by a single zebra-coil Seymour Duncan® JB™ humbucker wound at the Santa Barbara, CA factory. For over 40 years, the JB™ has been Seymour Duncan’s ultimate hot-rodded humbucker and features Alnico 5-bar magnets for smooth distortion and maximum sustain. The JB™ is controlled by a single chrome knurled volume knob with a push/pull function for series parallel tap.
