I recently installed the Seymour Duncan Jazz Neck HB in my Warmoth Strat (alder body, rosewood fretboard). I was coming from the Duncan Alnico II Pro HB which, while warm and vintage toned, got too wooly on my guitar (I felt it would have been great on an LP with maple top or Ash Tele to give it some snap). I’ve had a chance to rehearse and gig the Duncan Jazz Neck HB now a few times and am very impressed. It is the first time I’ve really ever played the neck HB by itself clean because it is very articulate but still has warmth. It has nice highs and scooped (but not absent) mids. Bass is full but tight. In case you’re considering it - it’s a great option if you need more definition on your neck HB. I do a lot of clean R&B type playing across all pickup combinations and a fair amount of overdrive in our cover band.
