Jaguar FEATURES:

  • High output, but still has Fender sparkle
  • Compensated Bridge for even volume across all pickups
  • USA-made Alnico 5 Magnets for optimal tonal balance and output

  • 10-Year Warranty on manufacturing defects

Overview

Our Jaguar Pickups are some of the highest-end, boutique Jaguar Pickups around. Built and wound by hand from the ground up, we choose the highest-quality magnets and wire we can find. We made sure that these Jaguar replacements are hot and beefy enough to sound great with 1 Meg pots, like the standard factory Jaguars. Carve into your tone even further with 3 output choices as well.

It starts here: Our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. Our Jaguar Pickups consist of local fiberboard and USA-Made Alnico 5 Magnets. We wind each pickup by hand, one at a time. Each pickup is wound 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.

Sound

These pickups are loud! We designed our Jaguar pickups to be pretty high output (6.3K Neck, 7K Bridge) so they’ll sound great with a factory-installed 1Meg volume pot. Our Jaguars are louder and thicker-sounding than our Blues Specials for Strat. On clean, the neck pickup sounds bouncy and rich. Lots of warm low-mids and fat treble strings. The bridge pickup will be just hot enough to play nicely with the neck, while still bring bright and snappy. Both pickups will sound clear and articulate with a 1Meg volume pot, but you can always darken your tone for a jazzier vibe with a 500K pot.

With some overdrive or distortion, expect a lot of “cream” as these Jaguar replacements break up nicely and evenly. The Sound Sample below features our Stock Set. We also offer a +5% Set and a +10% Set. Adding more turns will make this pickup thicker and darker – and louder.

    Hey Jason, as it turns out, we don't have any Black Covers for Jaguar at this time. I apologize for the inconvenience - Tyler

  4. Would these work on a Mustang?

    Hey Peter, they would work, but not as a drop-in replacement. You'd have to carefully check our dimensions. They are larger than a Mustang Pickup and will require modifications to the pickguard and possibly body.

    I dropped a set of these with a 5% overwind into a Vintera 60s Jaguar and it turned it into the perfect guitar for indie rock. I can still dial in clean tones that have the jangle I associate with Jaguars, but the dirty tone is much fuller and more balanced than the stock pickups were. I love the clarity of these pickups: I can stack effects (boost + distortion + fuzz) without getting that metal-style compressed sound.

    This is probably my fifth set of Fralins for different guitars. Put the stock wind fralin pickups into an mij jag and it really came alive. There is a good amount of low end but still a fender clarity which shines when doing leads. If you want your jag to sound significant and wished your jag had more bass these pickups solve that problem.

  3. James

    I replaced the stock pickups with these in my 60’s Vintera Jaguar. 5% overwind, i think 10% would have also been fine. They have lots of clarity and handle fuzz pedals well. Somewhere between strat and tele tones.
    Compared to the stock pickups, they are better balanced to each other and have more low end.

  4. Igor

    I was looking for a replacement for Bare Knuckle pickups in my Johnny Marr Jaguar, which to my taste lacked a bit of meat and thickness especially with overdrive. Lindy Fralin pickups (+5%) turned out to be a fantastic replacement and a definitely a big improvement over Bare Knuckles. Together with the Mastery bridge they turned my Jag into a very powerful and versatile beast. The pickups do sound thicker and punchier than Bare Knuckles and take overdrive really nicely. When I need a thinner more classic Jag sound, I use the bright switch. Couldn’t be happier with the purchase! Thanks a lot.

    Great. Just like the Fralin: Melody Maker and Strat pickups I already use. I put these and the Mini-Humbucker on a Rosewood Strat from Warmoth.
