YOU ARE NOT HELPING.

TS: What style of music do you play? It's always helpful to know...

If you're playing hard rock or something along those lines, all three will work fine but they all sound different.

What one really has to know before recommending a pickup is what kind of sound (NOT just what style you play) you're looking for, what do you not like about your current pickup, etc.

A customized custom

I digs the sh-4. but you're not going to be playing metal or blues, and you want this in a SSH strat, so i'd say go for the sh-11 (custom custom.) the sh-5 is a close second.
#18
The Custom Custom is an awesome pick-up for anything from harder rock to 80's metal.
Haven't tried the others though.
#19
JB's have a significant amount of mids and highs, I didn't like the one I put in my Strat.

I'll also throw in a Custom 5 to further confuse the noobs. Lol

Check out my thread here:

I had the same decision. I was deciding between all of these:

Duncan JB (TB-4)
Duncan Custom (TB-5)
Duncan Custom Custom (TB-11)
DiMarzio Super Distortion F-Spaced

I went with the Custom Custom a.k.a. Seymour Duncan TB-11. I didn't see what genre you're looking to play, but for me, I play mostly like hair metal and hard rock when I play with gain, think like Van Halen, Motley Crue, 80s Megadeth, I also play some 70s rock like Rush. It's a pretty good pickup.
my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps
