Seymour Duncan SH-1N4C BLK

Humbucker Original PAF Replica

There is not much left to say about the Seymour Duncan SH1. It is one of the most popular replacement pickups; especially when it is desired to replicate the well balanced sound of the the legendary PAF-Humbuckers of Seth Lover (the name is due to the bottom sticker "patent applied for"). For many guitarists this pickup is still the best, no screamer, it is way too classy to be that, ​​but it can sing like no other pickup. Particularly finicky musical gourmets attest SH1 even a touch more authenticity compared to several competitors - but clarification to that question could probably only be found by means of an AB comparison (which is very complex with pickups) and even then, certain judgements remain simply a matter of taste. In any case, a hot tip!

The SH 1 N4C is particularly suitable for the neck position and can be combined perfectly with output-stronger bridge pickups

This version is delivered with a 4-wire connection cable and thus additional circuits (single coil/parallel) are possible.

Very good pickup.
Cosmo F., 29.09.2015
I bought this pickup as I needed a neck pickup that retains its clarity when used in high gain (like I do) settings. I find it an excellent match for its bridge counterpart (a high output twin blade pickup). I'm still going through the initial discovery period and I have not had chance to put it through the paces yet but I'm sure the pickup will cope well. So far it's suited both for valve amps and solid state ones. The fact that it is a moderate output pickup makes it an ideal match for a more powerful bridge pickup. I can see me upgrading the neck pickups in my other guitars to a Seymour Duncan SH-1N4C pickup in the not too distant future.

Brilliant sound
Robert4411, 19.08.2014
Bought to fit in a Fat Tele setup with an STL-1b. Fat Tele switching allows the pickup to be split and used split or full with the bridge pickup or on its own. It works superbly.

The classic for a reason!
Glyn, 14.05.2013
I always wondered why I couldn't nail all those great tones you hear on record until I bought this pickup. Great for screaming leads, cleans and some really dirty rhythm work, fat mids and bass yet still has enough clarity so as not to sound like mush.
