Seymour Duncan SH-5 Custom Pickup

Postby rbc » Mon Mar 06, 2017 3:55 am

This is a cross post from Rusty Abrams on the Facebook page. I thought I'd run it past the board membership and see what you have to say about it:

According to Seymour Duncan their SH-5 Custom pickup has the same specs as the Dimarzio Super Distortion.
Do they actually sound the same?

IIRC, both pickups use ceramic magnet.
