Well, the JB is a jazz/blues fusion pickup, designed by Duncan for Jeff Beck. If you put it in a strat, which Beck often uses, your guitar will sound like his, probably in his Blow by Blow and Wired phase. Of course, he does weird things with his thumb that alters his tone a lot.

For indie/pop stuff the JB is a good choice but you might wanna turn down the gain on your amp b/c they can get a little ruff with high gain.

anothet good pickups for that type stuff is the Dimarzio Tone Zone. it has great bass, trebble, mids and good harmonics. the output isn't really high per-se but it is kinda like a PAF Pro on steroids.

or a sreamin' deamon.

maybe even a PAF might be good too.

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

I'm installing a Jazz and JB set in my PRS SE sometime in the next couple of days, so I'll put some clips up if you want, they've got four conductors too, so I'll splitting the coils.

Hey, are PRS SEs better than a Epi Les Paul ??
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!

This may seem blunt, but why the hell have you a Dual for playing poprock!?

Its this whole Ashlee Simpson / McFly syndrome, damn cheaper prices in the US.

Phew, i need to calm down, now wheres my Maiden cd?

EVERYONE uses Duncan JB's. From Iron Maiden to Greenday and back. They're the highest selling replacement pickup in teh world.

If you see a stock guitar which has seymour duncan pickups, there's a 98.45% chance that the bridge pickup is a JB.

well, i like to consider my bands music poprock, not pop-punk (which we are, haha) and to tell you the truth, i love the recto sound. i want tons of gain and low end on my guitar. so, isnt that what the recto is for? besides, the recto can be for any kind of rock maybe even music.

The PRS SE's pickups are reasonably OK, nothing special, that's why I'm replacing them, then again neither are the Epi LP's, they've both got set necks, but I personally prefer the feel and shape of the neck on my SE, one area where the Epi probably beats the SE is the bridge, with the SE's you have a choice between a cheap looking trem and one of those non-adjustable wraparound bridges which could give you intonation problems if you were to change the string guage from the stock 10's, in spite of that, I still prefer the playability and general feel of the SE's.
