The Seymour Duncan SH-2N Jazz Model Pickup is suitable for musicians who need an accurate, clear tone for fast jazz runs. The brighter sound has slightly less output and is a good match with most pickups. A popular combination is The Jazz Model in the neck with either a JB (SH-4) or Duncan Custom (SH-5) in the bridge.

My biggest issue with most stock neck humbuckers is they tend to be muddy sounding. I've had the Jazz installed in the neck position of 2 guitars now and they are easily my favorite neck humbucker. They are voice with a lot of treble and very little mid and bass response. One would think they were going to be overly bright but in the neck it works great - you already have a lot of low and mid range harmonics because the strings move more in that area over the neck pickup. It balances them out and gives them clarity but they still sound full. Doesn't matter if you are playing clean or with high gain, this pickup retains definition between notes and produces a sweet lead tone for single note lines. In my SG Special, I can play distorted hard rock or metal rhythm parts on the neck without it turning to much or getting lost in the mix. If you're looking for a versatile neck pickup don't let the name fool you - while it definitely could be used for jazz; it can do so much more and pairs well with almost any bridge pickup.

The only reason I did not give a 10 is because nothing is perfect... But this pickup sings!

I replaced the neck pick-up on my mahogay body guitar with this one after lots of reading about it. Probably, the appropriate word is "suave". It's tone is smooth and sweet for lead/soloing.
