Product Details

The Signature Jazz Guitar Pickup! "S" series pickups are voiced to mirror the balance, warmth and richness of a fine acoustic archtop guitar.

Each pickup is a sealed humbucker with an Alnico 5 bar magnet, 2-conductor wire, and a mounting tab for attachment beneath a pickguard — no guitar top routing is needed!

#3562 S-6 model (for 6-string guitar) is 9.5K ohms, dimensions are 7/16" x 1-1/16" x 2-5/8", not including mounting tab. Wiring diagram included.

Handmade by Seymour Duncan, these are among the pickups installed in the highly regarded archtop guitars of renowned luthier Robert Benedetto. Benedetto pickups are the choice of jazz guitarists Jimmy Bruno, Howard Alden, Frank Vignola, Bucky Pizzarelli, Kenny Burrell, Andy Summers, and many others.

Second times a charm

I have installed several of these pickups and tons of regular Duncan pickups. I just installed another that had an unusually low output but Stewmac quickly sent out a replacement. Now the guitar sounds great. Big fan of any Duncan product.

What a difference

I replaced the Hofner Diamond pickup on a Hofner Jazzica with this Benedetto Jazz pickup. With the Benedetto Jazz pickup, this beautiful instrument finally produces the sound and tone color it should have produced from the start.

Great Jazz Pickup

I installed this on an Eastman 810 CE and found it to produce a much more even sound across all of the strings than the original pickup. The tone is outstanding.
