Improve the tone of your Jazzmaster today with our Hum-Cancelling Jazzmaster pickups. Whether you are a professional recording artist or a local hero, you understand the importance of getting rid of that pesky hum. Hum Cancelling pickups from other manufacturers always fall short of that real Jazzmaster tone, but at Fralin Pickups, we have the perfect solution. Lindy’s unique hum-canceling design provides you with the purest single-coil tone you can get out of a hum-free pickup.

Our Hum Cancelling Jazzmasters features a clear, round bottom end, with smooth and sparkly highs. Expect a balanced and clear midrange with an excellent string definition. You’ll love the familiar Fender pick attack as single notes sound clear and round, and chords will sound warm and defined. 

Do you play clean? If so, you’ll find this set’s tone incredibly beautiful as the USA-Made Alnico 5 Magnets supply plenty of Fender sparkle. Playing with distortion will yield creamy, silky tones with a smooth, late breakup. We can overwind this model by 5% to give you more output and a darker and beefier tone – ask for it in the “Notes” field. 

Our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. Our Hum-Cancelling Jazzmaster Pickups consist of a precision injection mold and USA-Made wire. We use smooth-sounding USA-Made magnets to make this model clear and balanced. Each bobbin is carefully inspected and cleaned before winding.

We wind each pickup by hand, one at a time, using our proprietary “Sectioning” technique. This gives the pickup a sweet, clear tone. Finally, we wax-pot the pickup to preserve the pickup and prevent microphonics.

For a Hum-Cancelling P90 version, we offer this pickup as a Hum-Cancelling Steel Pole Jazzmaster. Check it out.

Tech Specs

See below for the estimated DCR and Polarity Information for our Hum-Cancelling Jazzmaster.

This pickup is hum cancelling and features reversible polarity if purchased with 2-Conductor With Shield Lead. You might need to rout out a bit of wood to make these pickups fit. Some customers were required to rout about 1/16" - 1/8" from their pickup cavities. On American Vintage Reissue Guitars (AVRI), you'll need to lift the Copper Plate, rout some of the wood (1/8" - 1/4"), and replace the copper plate.

    Hello, if I use my stock 1 megohm pots instead of 500k, how will that affect the tone? Thanks
  1. Q Hello, if I use my stock 1 megohm pots instead of 500k, how will that affect the tone? Thanks

    You'll have an additional top end when compared to the 500K. Definitely will sound great either way. I would try it on 1Meg first, then decide if it's too "crispy" on the top end or not. If so, change the volume pot to 500K.

  2. Are these voiced like Jazzmaster pick-ups, or P90?
  3. Q Are these voiced like Jazzmaster pick-ups, or P90?

    Hey Mark, these are voiced like a Jazzmaster. Our Hum Cancelling Steel Pole Jazzmaster sounds like a P90.

    Hey Brad, we recommend going with 500K pots and use a Blues Output Split Blade Tele Bridge. - Tyler

  8. I've installed Pure Vintage '65 American Professional Jazzmaster and converted it to 'original' Jazzmaster wiring with 1meg pots and rhythm circuit on a push-pull. I love how it sounds but hate the noise. . . Will these pickups play nice with the classic JM wiring scheme or would changes be needed to get back to that 'correct' Jazzmaster sound?

    Hey Abram, it's best to consider the Hum Cancelling pickups equal to the stock pickups - they will play great with your current wiring scheme.  - Tyler

    This is my second set of Hum-cancelling Jazzmaster pickups. I loved my first set so much that it was a no-brainer to grab another set for my second JM. ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM!

  2. Brian Duarte
    Verified Buyer

    Quality pickup. Excellent customer service. I’ll definitely be a return customer. However, these particular pickups just weren’t my cup of tea. I was using Duncan Hot Jazzmaster before these and i think i preferred that sound, i just hated the hum. Also, the way the pickups are soldered left no room for the neck pickup to be adjusted on the treble side. Im not sure because its an original 60s JM or not. Im still going to leave them in to cover a few more gigs and see if they’ll grow on me.

    I had these put into a Squire J Mascis Jazzmaster. No more hum, and the sound of these pickups is even better than I’d hoped for. A light year upgrade from the factory pickups. They’re clear and clean as need be. They also pick up fine details in subtle overdrive pedal grit. It has given me a huge new found love for my bridge pickup. Every sound you get out of those is crazy good. Seriously, these pickups are no joke amazing. Great customer service to boot. Lindy got on the phone with me when I had questions on options. Quick shipping. They were installed by the good guys at Guitar 48 in Ventura, CA. Thank you Fralin!

    I have a JMJM that I like the feel of, but wasn’t happy with electronically. I had swapped in pickups from another well known manufacturer but it still wasn’t quite what I was after. I had an experience with another guitar that I put Lindy’s noiseless P-90s into, and they were everything I had hoped for. I thought I’d give them a try here too & am so glad I did. They hit the mark for me and there is no noise. Product is fantastic, communication and service are excellent as well!

    Love ’em! Replaced the stock pickups in an Elliott Tonemaster and am very happy with the results. They keep all the good stuff (bite, attack, sustain, clarity, output, etc.), but have a bit more fullness and none of the NOISE!

  6. Rick Deliz
    Verified Buyer

    I added the Lindy Fralin Jazzmaster pickups to my Fender Squire Jazzmaster and what a tone! And great customer service received them right before my gig and had everything I expected from an amazing company and muxh more! Kudos to you and Thank you!

  7. Frank DeVincenzo

    I had these hum cancelling Jazzmaster pickups installed by the boys at RaritanBay Guitar in NJ, into my 2017 MIM sunburst and rosewood fretboard Jazzmaster. They also changed the pots from the stock 1k to 500m. Switchcraft toggle, and Jack. Silent operating noise, with creamy full chime and grind. You can’t ask for more than that! I would do this mod on any Jazzmaster, import or American. Fralin got this right.

  8. Matt Weinstock
    Verified Buyer

    I had high expectations for these pickups based on Lindy’s reputation, but after I dropped them in my MIJ Jazzmaster, I was really blown away. They sound amazing clean and with dirt, and were dead silent. HIGHLY recommend!
