Lindy Fralin Steel-Poled Jazzmaster Replacements give you authentic P90 tone for your Jazzmaster. High output, thick mids and aggressive highs, this pickup is quick to get dirty.



Our Steel Pole Jazzmaster Pickups give you P90 tone for your Jazzmaster. These pickups offer P90 bite, with a thick midrange and fat highs. They’re wound with 43-gauge wire, and feature Alnico 4 Bar magnets. Being a similar design to a P90, they give you authentic P90 tone for your Jazzmaster.


  • P90 Tone in a Jazzmaster configuration
  • Adjustable Steel Pole Pieces for fine-tuning string response
  • Direct replacement for Fender Jazzmaster
  • Huge mid-range tone with top-end bite
  • Calibrated Neck and Bridge for even pickup balance
  • Features Alnico IV Magnets


Lindy Fralin designed the Steel Pole Jazzmasters to be a P90 copy. They feature a large flat coil, adjustable steel screws and USA-Made Alnico IV bar magnets. When playing clean, these pickups sound large and rich. Expect a large midrange and more aggressive highs. Expect more of a “chainsaw” grind when playing with distortion. Chords will be thick and crunchy, with top-end bite. Expect more power and output, as this model is quick to break up and get dirty.

Steel Poled Jazzmaster


With 43 Gauge SPN wire, and built on USA-Made Fiberboard with USA -Made Alnico IV Bar Magnets, and Steel Screws.

    I put this in a guitar with a twang master and the combo is quite beautiful to behold! On its own, the p90 also sounds great.

    These pickups rule! The first thing I do in every guitar I get is put Fralins in. They are the best sounding pickups made. Nuff said.

    Steel-Poled pickups are amazing!
    These pickups brought my Jazzmaster back to life! Thanks to the solid recommendation from Jon Brown, my guitar has a solid bite, equally balanced in the highs and lows of my guitar’s tone. Thanks so much!

    Kickass! I swapped my stock squier jazzmaster bridge pickup for the steel pole version. The increased output, clarity, and sensitivity is exactly what I wanted.

    Jazzmaster came to life! The pickups really add the little something extra I needed from my MIJ Jazzmaster. The stock pickups were really weak sounding and now they really have some grit without all the hum associated with single coils.

    I swapped out my stock Jazzmaster pickups from another boutique brand in a Collings 360 LT M and installed Fralin Steel-Poled Jazzmaster pickups. I have never looked back and wonder why Collings doesn’t offer this as a option for their guitars. Amazing pickups!

    I just installed these pickups in my G&L Doheny and they sound $&@%#* amazing! The tone is very full and thick, but not at all muddy, with really great bass response. Highs are still clear, but the brittleness and shrillness of typical JM pickups are gone (thank Jeebus). To my ears, these pickups are the perfect mix of humbucker fullness and bass response, with the midrange punch and bite only a single coil can have. I opted for a 5% overwind in the bridge and a stock neck, which fits my style and needs perfectly.
