Lindy Fralin Jaguar® Replacements 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.

Clear

Fralin Jaguar Tone – Crystal Clear. 

Our Jaguar Replacements are some of the highest-end, boutique Jaguar replacements 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.


SoundFeatures:

  • 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

SoundSound:

These pickups are loud! We designed these pickups to be pretty high output (6.3K Neck, 7K Bridge) so they’ll sound great with a factory-installed 1Meg volume pot. 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 make this pickup thicker and darker – and louder.

    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!
