I dislike the SH8 a lot,it is very bassy and muddy in most guitars. The only guitar I have ever liked with it stock is the old Tom Delonge Strat and that is it.

The Sh-2 (Jazz) is popular as a neck pickup, it is very bright and relatively mud-free as humbuckers go. I have two sets (neck and bridge) of them in use in two entirely different kinds of guitars. In a dark sounding guitar they will liven it up, in a brighter guitar they sound bright and complex.

so even if it was made for jazz, it can work well for metal?
Thanks for that nice reply.

I can't really answer that, not being a metal player, but at least one guitar of that style uses it as standard. - An Esp mentioned in a recent thread in one of these electric fora.

I have a SH8 in a warlock. while it's really good really dirty, it's not something to tune below D with. Lower than D and like said before, it's really muddy and almost discernable the first 3 frets. That being said, with whatever the stock neck pickup is, in middle position there's harmonics going on like crazy. I really want to try an invader neck pickup to see if it's as intense. Just my $.02

Yeah, I'd recommend the jazz model as well. It sounds really nice clean, and it holds it own when distorted for metal. Be careful though, it is a lower output than the sh-8, so your bridge pickup will be louder than your neck pickup, unless you'd find a way to balance the output. I have the sh-6 paired with the jazz and that is a very nice combination.
