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.


Due to the nature of Raw Nickel, Raw Nickel may contain slight cosemetic defects or abrasions.

Jaguar INFO:

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.

1 Questions about Jaguar

  1. Hello … I’m building a Jaguar guitar. I’m using a MJT body Warmoth neck , mastery bridge …. I play with a lot of fuzz. I play through a fender twin reverb. I’ve made a few tele partscasters and I prefer the lower output pickups. Not sure what I should get for the Jaguar. Any help would be greatly appreciated. – Rick Sell

    1. Hey Rick, I would recommend our Stock Output Jaguar pickups. They have plenty of thickness and will break up nicely with fuzz. That said, they are balanced and have a good amount of top-end as well.

    They’re in and sound great. I am having an issue, though, because the high E and B strings are not as loud as the others. This was the reason I put the new pickups in the first place. So, it isn’t the pickups causing this. Any thoughts on what might be causing this?

    • Tyler Delsack – Fralin Pickups (store manager)

      Hey Robert,

      Most of these issues can be caused by Pickup Height, which should be set properly. I would recommend measuring 1/16″ from the top of the pole piece to the string, when that string is pressed down at the highest fret.

      If that doesn’t solve it, this problem could be caused by a few things. I would start at your strings first, then the saddle, and the nut.

      1.) If you play light strings, like 9’s, I would recommend going up a gauge or two to add some mass.

      2.) Consider upgrading your guitar’s saddles to something with more mass to them. This can help make strings vibrate more efficiently.

      3.) Check your nut to make sure that the string slots are not cut too low.

      Lastly, I would also check your action – If your action is too low, it causes the strings to not vibrate fully – causing volume issues.

      I hope that helps!
