(Originally written by lemondedejef/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
Originally mounted on a Fernandes Monterey Elite (Les Paul-like) with mahogany body, set mahogany neck, maple top.

I added a pickup housing connected to the shield so I have no noise problems. No need for "wax potter" with modern pickups.

Sound: I had to do lots of tests to find the perfect height. I can't say it enough: height dramatically changes the response of a pickup!

The pickup produces a singing sound with superb overtones. With the housing and an average height it sounds fat and has a wide dynamic range.

Clean sounds are precise and crystal-clear but not sharp or aggressive.

With distortion it's very versatile and it sounds good from light crunch to heavy metal.

The SH-4 is quite unique because it has a strong character but also a great versatility!
