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.

Jaguar FAQ's

General FAQs

Here are quick answers to common questions we get:

  • What Ohm Readings does your Jaguar have?

    Navigate to our Tech Specs Tab for complete Ohm Readings and more useful information.

  • Will this pickup fit my instrument?

    Check our "Sizing" tab for the size of the pickup. No Sizing tab? Check under the product image gallery for dimensions.

  • Is your Lead Time of 3-4 Weeks accurate?

    It really depends on the shop capacity at the moment, and the size of your order. Feel free to give us a call for an accurate lead time. We always try to underpromise and overdeliver.

  • What pickup height do you recommend setting your Jaguars to?

    Our recommended Pickup Height is 1/8" (3.175mm) on the Bass Side and 1/16"( 1.5875mm) on the Treble Side. Measure by holding the corresponding side down at its highest fret and measure from the bottom of the string to the top of the pole piece.

    I just bought the 65th Anniversary Jaguar and I just thought that the pickups were pretty average. Now after installing the Fralin Jaguar stock pickups the guitar has really just come alive. Now it sounds like how I thought a Jag should sound like. The difference is amazing and I am now loving the guitar. Very happy!!

  3. Corey

    Brought the jaguar with 10% overwound for both pickups. I wanted it to sound unique and beefy, and boy you didn’t disapoint. I built my jag partcaster, because i’m a lefty, and trying to find a jaguar is very expensive. These pickups are still bright and punchy, but add a special charm to boot. I love these pickups! A+

    I put a set of 10% overwind next and bridge on my thinline jaguar fsr.
    Great string separation, clarity, but also warm and deepness that make this set so musical and fun to play!
    Thanks to the Fralin team.
