Replacement Vintage & Modern Jaguar Pickups

Custom Handwound Replacement Jaguar Pickups with steel claw

Here are my modern Vintage, Modern & Custom Design Jaguar replacement pickups. From my Classic '62 & Classic '64 Jaguar Pickup sets to more custom, modern & hotter versions, all my replacement Jaguar pickups are handwound here in my workshop before being wax potted in a measured combination of paraffin & beeswax.

NOTE: Unlike other makers of replacement Jaguar Pickups, my pickup sets can be purchased complete with steel ferrous claws just like the originals. The Jaguar Pickup claw was designed to go someway to cancel out hum while increasing the magnetic field around the pickup - increasing output.

Jag-90, Jaguar Sized P90 Design

Fatter, Grittier Jaguar Pickups with steel claw - Based on the Classic P90 Design

With its six adjustable pole pieces and dual magnet design, the new Jaguar Sized P90 pickup is great if you're after that fat single coil P90 tone. Due to its design of dual bar magnets and pole screws, the sound is warmer & fatter than a standard Jaguar pickup. In the middle position you'll stil get the classic crunchier sound, just a fatter, more rounded version. Great for a more blusier style of playing. After much prototyping I decided on the thinner 43AWG coil wire for a warmer, grittier sound.

As the geometry of the Jag-90 pickup differs from a standard P90 in terms of width of coil, the sound will be a little brighter but still with the warmth and fatter single coil voice you'd expect from a P90 design. I've designed the P90 Jaguar pickup with custom magnets to let the strings vibrate a little more adding to the warmth in the tone. The adjustable poles allow you to match the your neck radius for better string balance.

I've custom designed the bobbins so the pickups will fit standard Jaguar pickup covers and the Neck Jaguar P90 Pickup can be RW/RP for hum cancelling in the middle position.

NOTE: Available with or without the steel claws. With the claw the sound is warmer, sweeter & more resonant but you do lose some output. Without the claws the sound is brighter, more aggressive & punchy with more promounced output.

A Higher Output, Custom Jaguar Pickup

Inspired by the alternative music scene of the mid-to-late '80s this is my overwound take on the vintage Jaguar pickup. The flat Alnico 2 polepieces are slightly warmer sounding than Alnico 5 but with the taller, stronger magnets, I've managed to keep much of the traditional bright tone and mix it with an aggressive, biting output, great for really driving an amp or running effects.

The Alt '88 range has been a real labour of love and these pickups and have gone through numerous changes to get them right. A great Jaguar rhythm or lead pickup if you want more bite and a modern aggressive attack. The Alt '88 Jaguar Neck can also be RW/RP if required.

Rich Jaguar Tones

With handwound coils pressed around the custom magnets and wax potted in a combination of paraffin & beeswax, my new Creamery Sonic '60 Jaguar replacement pickups give that richer, musical sound synonimous with the old classic Burns Tri-Sonic® design.

Geometry dictates they won't sound identical to the old 60s classics as the pickups are smaller (standard Jaguar size) and I use my custom made thinner magnets inside the pressed coil, but they do have the richer tone you'd expect.

Jaguar Sized - Designed to fit a standard Jag guitar with no modifications needed

Unlike the larger originals, my Sonic '60 pickups have been designed to fit a standard scratchplate & body cavity but with outputs of 7k & 6.3k respectively - created to balance the old vintage sounds with a modern spin they have a richer, warmer, more rounded, musical tone than a standard Jaguar pickup set.

With a choice of magnets, you can choose to have a warmer or brighter version. Alnico 2 'holds' the strings a little less, allowing them to vibrate a little more freely giving a perceived slightly warmer, more resonant tone.

Ceramic, being stronger, holds the strings a little more giving a slightly more attacking, slightly brighter tone.

Alnico 5 offers a slightly brighter tone than Alnico 2 but a little more rounded than the ceramic option.

Bridge, Middle & Neck Jaguar Bass VI Pickup Set


Designed specifically for the needs of the Jag Bass VI - both in the Low End and Higher Register

I designed these after many requests for Jag Bass VI pickups but held off pushing them live until they went through solid testing - a higher output, calibrated & balanced pickup set that gave great attack whilst still keeping clarity, definition and without losing the characteristics needed for bass playing, especially for those who play lead lines on the higher strings.

Tight Bass, Defined Lead - More Punch, More Attack

I tried a number of different methods before signing off the final designs, using my own Bass VI as a test guitar, finally deciding on using custom made taller & stronger Alnico 5 magnets with different geometry to the coil than a standard Jaguar pickup to balance great low-end with clear, defined lead line sounds for the higher strings

The replacement Jaguar Bass VI pickups are scatterwound here in my workshop before being wax potted for a specific time in a combination of paraffin & beeswax.

Custom Versions

Although I chose Alnico 5 magnets for my standard replacement Bass VI set I've discussed variations with a good few Bass VI players and do make purely custom versions. If you'd like to chat about a custom designed set with different magnet choices, just get in touch. Also, if you'd like to buy them as a single bridge, middle or neck, just drop me an email and we can work on the best design for you to balance well with your existing setup.

Available in black, white or aged white covers and with or without the ferrous chrome-plated metal claws attached and wax potted to stop microphonic feedback. The Jaguar Bass VI middle pickup can be reverse wound, reverse polarity RW/RP to create a hum canceling effect in th emiddle position. Comes with Vintage style cloth covered lead wires.

Creamery Jaguar Pickup Reviews

Its great when I get positive feedback from customers, and good reviews & word-of-mouth really help the custom shop maker so with this in mind, I've created this page of reviews.

All the comments below were either emailed to me or posted to my Twitter or Facebook pages.

Have a read through what others are saying about my replacement Jaguar(Jag) Pickups and get in touch if you'd like me to custom make some pickups for you. I don't have pickups all boxed up ready to send out, each order is custom made which means I can modify the specifications to suit you, your playing and your guitar.



Soooo good! Crystal clear and pack a punch. Perfect! N x

Nathan Connolly (Snow Patrol / Little Matador) - Alt '88 Jag Set


The pick ups. They sound great!!

The presence of the instrument is total in the room. And good punch. And so much less noise. In the 2nd position it's total silence. Can't wait to record with it this weekend.

Thank you so much!

UPDATE: Now I have lived and played and recorded a bit with the new pickups. I have recorded both in my own studio and in studios around Stockholm. And I left the bass at my friend Pär Wiksten's (of the Wannadies) studio because he just would not let it go :) They sound absolutely great. And as soon as the album Pär is currently working on is out I'll send you a link to the songs the pickups are featured on.

Well all in all I'm very happy with the pickups I got from you. Thank you very much.

David Silva - Jaguar Bass VI Set


The Jag-pickups are sounding amaaaaaazing!

Oliver Bees - ’64 Jaguar Set


G'day Jaime, Finally installed the pickups, and, my gosh, you've surpassed yourself!

These are everything I would have wanted the Bareknuckles in my J Marr to be. Unfortunately, I don't mess with signature guitars (for the resale value) otherwise I would have replaced them.

As it stands, I'll likely be selling off the J Marr Jag and keeping the Jag that now has your pickups (and a Mastery bridge.) These clearly have what I have come to view as the Creamery trademark sound: chiming, shimmering and, with gain turned up, attitude, with just enough harmonics to make things interesting. The fact that they look good with the chromed covers doesn't hurt things either.

Sonic ’60 Jaguar Set - Dominique Roussel


Hi, Just thought I'd drop you a line to say that I (finally) got round to fitting the Jag pickups I ordered from you, and they're excellent: turned my Jag into a really useable instrument that sounds great. Big improvement on the stock pickups.

Thanks,

Neil Clasper - ’62 Jag Set


The Alt ’88 has both enough twang and a hell of a lot punch and attack. I Love it! It really brought the guitar back to life. Again I love it.

Truly a new fan!

Micke Karlsson - Alt ’88 Jag


Hi, Finally got the pickups soldered in. Sound great, as per your usual.

Cheers,

Matt Hammond - ’64 Jaguar Set


Hi Jaime, love the Alt 88 pickups I got from you last year, they're great!

Leo Moreton - Alt ’88 Jaguar Pickups


Hi Jaime ,just to say I received my Alt 88 pickups on Friday and installed them in my jag today, They sound fantastic!better than I could have hoped for.

James Bishop - Alt ’88 Jaguar Set


Hiya Jaime, I just got my guitars back a couple of days ago with the new pickups. They're a MASSIVE improvement in every way! Both sets are fuller, louder and more responsive, just a great set of pickups!

Kieran McGee - Jag-90 Set


Hi Jaime, I forgot to send you and email when i received the pickups.

They are absolutely fantastic. I'm running the Jaguar through an Orange OR15 and it sounds great. Really alive!

Thanks!

James Buchanan - Classic ’62 Jaguar Set


I must say the pickups sound fantastic - noticeably more meaty while still retaining that classic jaguar sound (in all positions). I play an early 60s jag but never had the original pickups, so I've been through quite a few different combinations over the years...thanks to you I've finally found the sound I was looking for!

Stuart Mackenzie - Alt '88 Jaguar Pickups


Hi jaime just got my jag back after putting in the creamery's alt 88 in the neck and the creamery's extra width in the bridge with 2 volume controls and a tone capacitor on it and excuse my french but it sounds f@$cking awsome thanks again for your advice and great service now on to the next project.

Extra Width Jaguar Bridge & Alt '88 Jaguar Neck - James Bishop


Thanks Jaime. Every time I pickup my Jag is a rebirth for me since my Alt '88s

Alt '88 Jaguar Set - Thomas Mathos Gossay


Thank you!

These pick ups are fantastic everything i wanted and more. Well worth the money. Will recommend you to others.

Many thanks

Rob Winters - Classic '64 Jaguar Pickup Set


I got the wide rangers into my jazzmaster and the alt 88s into my jag..... WOW!

The jazzmaster sound is much more muscular,a solid resonant bottom and mids with a really creamy chime to the highs,absolutely no icepickiness.. I havent adjusted the pole pieces and cant see why i would. Open chords sound like im playing into a unison effect. Its the Malkmus Pavement sound. Love it!

The alt 88s make my jag sound like I would have expected a fender jaguar to sound, warm, twangy, wet, glassy, chimey. Before I swapped the pickups in my guitars there wasnt to much of a tonal difference between them other than their respective outputs. Now they both have very distinct tonal characteristics. Cant wait to get the broadcasters. Have a good one

Karl Brennan - Classic '71 Wide Range Humbucker Set & Alt '88 Jaguar Set


Hi Jaime,

I've been meaning to e-mail for a while, really just to say how pleased I am with the pickups for my Jaguar. The pickups really have saved this guitar from being left in the corner or worst, sold and never seen again! Currently running through a Fender Blues Deluxe with Fulltone OCD pedal, this guitar now sounds the business - really impressed with the warmth, depth and those subtle 'extra' tones that come through on a sweep. One of my friends has always been sceptical of Jaguars and in particular was never impressed with my one until now - the Creamery Pickups have definitely converted him!

I'm now looking at my stock Gibson SG standard now and the cogs are turning... no doubt I'll be in touch again soon!

Thanks again,

Leigh Nicholson - Extra Width Jag Set


Hi Jaime, The pickup has arrived and is installed !

Great sound , thank you. Very pleased to have dealt with you!

Regards,

Oli Focant - Extra Width Jag Neck


Hi Jaime, Just installed the Sonics in my Fender Hollowbody Jaguar and they are fantastic! Dynamic & Articulate with wide, sweet harmonics. I was on the verge of selling the guitar because no matter what pickups I put in it, it just never spoke to me. Now it sounds great!

Thank you very much!

Douglas Hodges - Sonic ’60 Jag Set


Hi Jaime, I've been using your alt. 88 Jag pickup now for almost two years, and they are awesome. Since the pickup swap I've been in love with the sonic sounds my Jap Jaguar produces, it's has that mellow growl I've been looking for in my guitar sound. So thanks again for this dream come true.
