Seymour Duncan SH-14 Custom 5 Humbucker, Black
The SH-14 Custom 5 pickup was developed by an eager group of contributors to our web user group who replaced the ceramic or Alnico 2 magnet in an SH-5 Custom or SH-11 Custom Custom with an Alnico 5. Tonally, the Custom 5 is a compromise between these two pickups. It offers the optimum balance of warmth, punch, power and clarity.
Compared to the SH-5 and SH-11, the tone is more vintage, with less distortion, but it's still very strong and powerful. It's fuller than an SH-5 with softer highs, more bass, and slightly less output. It's got a great rhythm sound and a beautiful, deep singing lead tone. Clean sounds are rich and full with enhanced presence. Think of the Custom 5 as a higher output SH-1 '59 with a deeper bottom end and expanded output.
I already have a LP with duncan 59's in so I wanted something with a little more edge than the 59 (which is awesome too) The custom5 fits the bill perfectly easily covering tones from reggae to metal, crisp, clear and articulate. Very happy with it. Paired the c5 with a jazz neck hb which has proven a good match.
