    Here's a little video I just recorded where I decided to really push the Seymour Duncan Jerry Donahue Lead a little. Played through a fairly loud setting on a Blues Junior with just a little push over the bend from a Boss SD-1. The pickup works really well in this kind of situation don't you think. Even though it's designed as a country twanger.

    It's an OUTSTANDING pickup. I have one in a partscaster and there ain't much it can't do !

    I've had a JD in my Tele bridge for 2 years now, It is a very good pickup, one that can cover a lot of territory and it blends great with my Harmonic Design Mini Strat in the neck position .
    The JD has that great Tele bridge punch with a slight refined edge.. I think it can be an excellent choice in many cases.
    Adding the JD was the last pickup change I made and it raised my partscaster to a whole different level..

    Yeah I really love it. It sounds good and chimey with the vol rolled off a bit. But like this vid above, in full bast, it really barks. Super pickup!

    For the money I don't think you can beat a S/D J/D. Get one used for $50. Covers most bases, I love the varied tones mine can deliver.
