Jaguar Pickups by Lindy Fralin give you the sound of surf, in high definition. Fat, beefy, and warm, these pickups are hotter and thicker-sounding than most of our Strat replacements.
Want to learn more about our Jaguar? Here's all the information you'll need:
- Modified Fender specifications, with more output and thicker tone
- 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
- Hand-wound with our “Sectioning” technique for unique, dynamic tone
- Hand-built fiberboard Bobbins for unrivaled quality control
- 10-Year Warranty on manufacturing defects
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.
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.
Wound with 42 Gauge SPN wire, and built on USA-Made Fiberboard with USA -Made Alnico V magnets. Our Stock Neck reads about 6.3K, our Stock Bridge reads about 7K.
Jaguar Necks are wound Top to Winder, or Clockwise from Ground to Hot, and magnetized South to Strings. Jaguar Bridges are wound bottom to Winder and magnetized North to Strings.

I own a Johnny Marr Jag with the stock Barenuckle Pickups. There are a lot of things I like about the guitar, but it can often sound too "plinky." Great for a lot of music, but lacks the bite of a tele bridge or strat neck. I'm considering replacing the Barenuckles with LFs or even selling the guitar. Would you recommend LF 5% overwinds? 10%? I love the Jag chime, but it often pales next to a strat or tele. Please advise. Thanks!

Hey Doug, can you reply back with the ohm readings of your current pickups? That will help me advise on the output I recommend.
Hiya, what is the distance between the outermost pickup poles please?

Hey Alex, Sorry for the delayed response. 52mm.
I bought these pickups, and they have very good tones. But I wonder, should the highest magnetic column of the neck pickup be on the G string? Should the highest magnetic column of the bridge pickup be on the D string?

Do you Jaguar pickups come in hum canceling when both are engaged? Also... when both are engaged can a switch be installed that would allow for both series and parallel? If so, would they still be hum canceling in both positions?

Hey Dan, our Jaguar pickups are RW / RP and hum canceling in the middle position regardless of if you wire them in series or parallel. - Tyler
Thinking about using these in an American Pro which has 500k pots. What winding would you suggest for use with heavy fuzz/effects?

Hey Jeremiah, thanks for your question. I recommend the +5% overwind on the 500K pots and heavy fuzz and effects. - Tyler
