GIVE YOUR JAZZMASTER A LEG-Up.
You know the tone of the famous Jazzmaster. It’s unique pickup design gives the guitar a completely unique sound. Unlike a Tele or a Strat, the Jazzmaster is famous for having a large, flat coil, and shorter magnets. These unique attributes change the tonal characteristics of this pickup. To give our pickups a balance of clarity, midrange and output, we hand-build and scatter wind them.
- AlNiCo V Magnets
- Scatterwound, hand-wound coil pattern
- Black or White cover options
- Thick, meaty tone that’s not sharp or tinny
- USA-Made magnets and wire, hand-wound, one at a time.
- What Output should I choose? For a thinner, clearer sound with pronounced top-end and a clear bottom end, opt for the -5% underwind. For a thicker, beefier tone with darker highs and stronger lows, opt for the +5% overwind. This will increase the output of the pickup by 5%, decrease the highs by 5%, and boost the mids by 5%.
- What’s the difference between Single Coil Jazzmaster and Hum-Cancelling Jazzmaster pickups? The Hum-Cancelling Jazzmasters tend to have a slightly thicker and darker midrange. They also have a bit more output. Both sound clean and clear.
- How far away do the strings does the pickup need to be? Push your Low E String down at the highest fret. Measure from the top of the pole piece to the bottom of the string. Ideal starting location should be 1/8? on the bass string, and 1/16? on the treble string, when the High E string is pushed down at highest fret.
- Wiring Diagrams? We don’t have any Jazzmaster wiring diagrams at the moment. You can find a bunch of them on the internet. Our White lead is Hot, and our Black lead is Ground.
