Hum-Cancelling Steel-Pole Jazzmaster FEATURES:

Are you searching for P90 tone for your Jazzmaster, but hate hum? This pickup will provide you with the results you’re searching for. Lindy’s Hum-Cancelling Steel Pole Jazzmaster pickups are the perfect fit for those looking to beef up their Jazzmaster. We build these pickups to the same specifications as our Fralin Steel Pole Jazzmaster Pickups, but with a unique and innovative 2-coil design for hum cancellation in all positions.

The Hum-Cancelling Jazzmaster leans more towards the tone of a P-90 than a single-coil (exactly like our Hum Cancelling P90), but with added thickness. Using 43 Gauge wire, we squeeze as much output as we can out of this set while maintaining clarity and attack.

Features:

  • Strong and bold – lots of midrange and snarl
  • USA-Made Bonded Neodymium magnets for an aggressive attack
  • Compensated Bridge output for even volume across all pickups
  • Multiple winding options to provide you with your ideal tone
  • Dead-quiet and hum-free performance
  • Adjustable Steel Pole pieces for fine-tuning string balance
  • Hand-wound with our “Sectioning” technique for unique, dynamic tone
  • Hand-built for unrivaled quality control, and inspected three times during the manufacturing process
  • 10-Year Warranty on manufacturing defects

 

Sound

When playing clean, these pickups sound thick and powerful, especially in the midrange and top-end. Closer to the sound of a P90, our Hum-Cancelling Steel Pole Jazzmaster Pickups will provide you with an aggressive, thick tone that is perfect for balancing out a bright-sounding guitar or for those looking for more growl in their sound. Do you like distortion? You’ll undoubtedly get some push out of this set. Hum-Cancelling Steel Pole Jazzmasters provide you with that famous P90 “chainsaw” grind instead of a smoother AlNiCo distortion.

We also feature multiple winding options: a 5% underwind, or 5% overwind option. Underwinding a pickup cleans up the midrange and emphasizes the highs – think “clearer and cleaner”, while overwinding thickens and darkens the pickup’s tone. Our Stock Set is the perfect and ideal balance, to our ears.

It all starts here: our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. Hum-Cancelling Steel Pole Jazzmaster pickups consist of a precision injection mold and USA-Made Steel Screws. We use aggressive USA-Made Neodymium magnets to make this model scream, with a pronounced pick attack. Each bobbin is carefully inspected and cleaned before winding.

We wind each pickup by hand, one at a time, and wind each pickup 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.

Tech Specs

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

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.

    I’ve primarily been a Strat, Tele, Paul guy, so P90s weren’t in my wheelhouse. I played an SG junior that a friend of mine had, and I loved the Townshend vibe. I can’t stand single coil hum, so the idea of only being able to play with both pickups on didn’t appeal to me. I put Fralin’s P90 voiced Jazzmasters in a Squier Paranormal Tele. These are great! That vintage vibe is there, and they’re dead quiet. I like them so much, I upgraded the neck on the guitar, along with the bridge. This guitar is in my regular rotation now. Well done!!

    These things are amazing! Pushes ANYTHING into overdrive without so much as a peep of noise. Fat P90 tone and dead silent, I love them. One thing to note: I do find getting the right tone a bit finicky when plugging in DI but that’s normally the nature of DI playing. But where it matters in the amps they KICK and sound so good that the finicky EQ on DI can be completely ignored.

    I am thoroughly blown away by these pickups! These are even quieter than my hum-bucking guitars. As someone with absolutely no knowledge on inner wiring and electronics of a guitar, I found installing these relatively simple. I used Lindy’s Jazzmaster PDF wiring diagram, a newly purchased Weller soldering kit and a few of the tips and tricks PDFs I was emailed and knocked this out by myself with no issues. The wiring was a bit different than what came stock in the Jazzmaster, so that took a little figuring out, but once it made since, it was smooth sailing. The tone, silence and sustain of these pickups are giving my Jazzmaster new life and is now my go-to guitar. I use lots of overdrive and high gain and these are still dead silent. Great work, Lindy!

    Amazing pickups. No hum or annoying noise, but perfectly clear and bright. They sound fantastic in my Jazzmaster

  5. David Haer

    Very happy with these pickups! Great for clean tones and can go to the highest levels of fuzz without losing the mid range.

    Another Great set!

    Replaced the stock pickups in the classic vibe and it took the guitar to a whole other level! Crisp articulate smooth vibe and gets that grit when called upon

    Badass! Thanks Fralin. This Jazzmaster is now the guitar I wanted it to be.

  11. Patrick Corbett

    I got a set for my MJT Jazzmaster with CP guts – The tone of the pickups has transformed this guitar – the layers of complexity of the neck pickup alone is outstanding – I’m doing a lot of ambient ‘soundscape’ stuff…These are silent!

    Holy Lord of Tone

    Completely transformed my Squire Baritone into one of my favorite guitars. 5% overwind in the bridge – Doom city! Thanks to the team for awesome communication too

    Fralins are still the best! The best pickups, the best service, and support!

    Awesome!

    These Hum-Cancelling Steel-Poled Jazzmaster pickups are great. I purchased the 5% underwind. My Jazzmaster still sounds like a Jazzmaster but with the high-end tamed, more mids and a much fuller overall sound. I can’t say enough good things about them. Good people do deal with also.

    Exceeded my Expectations
    I got a pair for a custom Jazzmaster build. The neck was stock and the neck 5. Because the pickups have more height than standard Fender pickups, I did have to do a little bit of routing of the pickup cavities – about 1/8″ for the neck, 1/16″ for the bridge. (The Fralin folks do mention that this mod may be necessary on the product spec page… it’s not difficult. I used a B&D RTX with a router bit on a StewMac Precision Router base and just did it in a few passes). The pickups sound fantastic! Clear with a nice full tone but distinct highs. I am very happy with the purchase.

    I recently purchased these pickups for my jazzmaster, i can’t say enough good things about them, they sound great, very dynamic and super quiet when stacking gain pedals, especially fuzz pedals. I totally recommend these pickups.
