Jazzmaster Pickups

Modern, Vintage & Custom Replacement Jazzmaster Pickups - Made in Manchester

From the vintage, true short/wide coils to fatter, hotter, grittier outputs all my replacement Jazzmaster Pickups are handwound here at my workshop in Manchester, UK

I've tried to create Jazzmaster pickups & replacement sets that chime with certain tones & periods in music but often once you place an order, I'll discuss how we can make the pickup custom to you. Custom Handwound Replacement Jazzmaster style pickups from The Creamery.

Custom Handwound Vintage & Modern Replacement Jazzmaster Pickups

Vintage Jazzmaster pickups are unique, their sound synonymous with the 50s & 60s Surf sounds and the post-punk & alternative scenes from the late 70s onwards

With a wide yet short single coil, much of the wire travels further away from the pole magnets, giving the distinctive dark twang. Unlike many modern Jazzmaster pickups, I build my replacement pickups to the vintage correct shallow height to get the correct vintage Jazzmaster pickup sound. Often associated with surf guitars and modern day alt/indie bands such as Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jnr & My Bloody Valentine, even Ex-Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr plays a Jazzmaster.

If you'd like a custom set of Replacement Jazzmaster pickups - just get in touch with details of the kind of tone/voice/output you're after and I'll see what I can do.

All my replacement Jazzmaster pickups are andwound at my workshop here in Manchester.

NOTE: All my standard 6-Pole Replacement Jazzmaster Pickups are vintage correct 51mm Pole spacing but I can create a custom set with alternative pole spacing - Just get in touch.

A warmer mid-range than standard single coils and with a higher output they've more clarity and spank than a standard humbucker.

Handcrafted flatwork baseplate to keep the higher frequencies, handcrafted ferrous reflector plate, my custom full-size Wide Range Humbucker bobbins with medium speed scatterwound coils - The Creamery Wide Range / Thinline Humbucker for Jazzmaster is a great crunchy pickup.

    A true P90 pickup for Jazzmasters

    A direct replacement for standard Jazzmaster Pickups

    A lower vintage output, less attacking pickup but with a wide dynamic range. This is my brighter P90 similar to those old pickups of the early '50s. Fatter in tone than a single coil. Still with that fat P90 sound, great for warm clean tones part way between a single-coil and humbucker the Classic '53 P90 pickup won't drive an amp as much as my Classic '57 P90. The Alnico 2 being a slightly weaker magnet than the 4 or 5, gives a warmer, more vintage style tone. A great P90 pickup for those jazzier sounds. Alnico 4 is a little clearer than the Alnico 2 but ever so slightly warmer than the Alnico 5. The Alnico 5 magnets give a great bright P90 single-coil attack.

    The Classic '57 P90 is higher in output than my Classic '53 giving that large fat P90 full-bodied drive & tone yet still keeping the warmth with real attack, grunt and definition. A great lead P90 sound for a bridge position pickup, sweet warmth in the neck. Single conductor, braided shield lead wire. Available in black or cream P90 pickup covers, dog-ear or soapbar.

    For a set I'd reccommend an Alnico 2 in the Bridge & Alnico 4 or 5 in the Neck.

    Single conductor, braided shield lead.

  • Reviews of my Handwound Jazzmaster Pickups

     

    Hi J, Just fitted the new Jazzmaster pickups tonight. They sound great. Thanks.
    Alex Kapranos, Franz Ferdinand
    The (Jazzmaster) pickups are absolutely superb! - Better than anything I've fitted in the past.
    Jeff Ball
    I've come to the conclusion that I REALLY like these "Extra Width Jazzmaster" pickups. In the past I had a problem with the trebliness of my Antiquity II's. I like my tone quite dark and they always had a trebly edge that I didn't like, I resorted to fitting a 250K volume pot to try and tame them but I still wasn't satisfied. When I fitted the new pickups I put a 1meg pot back in, I roll the tone down to 4 and that is the sound i've always wanted - warm, full and with just enough treble. I also played my Coopersonic Dirtbox for the first proper time yesterday and the 2 seem to go together really well, i'm very happy. I also found myself using the neck pickup, which in the past I have very rarely done. I found the Antiquity II to be a bit too boomy, the new pickup is smooth and a lovely smooth sound. I highly recommend these pickups, i'm serioulsy considering a pair of Creamery Humbuckers for my B&B Jazzmaster now - i'm that impressed!
    Mark Harman
    Received the pickup today – installed it and it sounds wonderful. A lot fuller than the pickup it replaced. Very impressed – doesn’t sound like a brand new pickup (I mean that as praise). Enough bite without being to brittle. Sounds excellent in all configurations – never was a big fan of the sound of both the pickups together until now. Thanks very much.
    Neil McNaught
    I fitted your pickups last night into my J Mascis jazzmaster and all I can say is wow! I was kinda hoping for a modest improvement, but the guitar sounds significantly better. Really I'm gobsmacked. Thanks very much! Once again thanks a lot, money well spent.
    Murray McDowell
    Got the new pickup fitted.....it sounds amazing !! Loads off oooomph but still retaining that great "tele" sound...........i love it! Thanks for everything. I'm spreading the word …. First outside gig with new pup yesterday - it sang! Thanks again Jaime!
    Gavin Gray
    Gotta say that your pickups really are great and the guitar sounded superb. ust great and I would recommend to anyone.
    Terry Clark
    I had a pre CBS Jazzmaster at school, my last attempt using Seymour Duncan Pick-ups to recreate it, was a disaster. Your pick ups are miles better!
    David Chesterman
    Hi Jaime, received the Extra Width Jazzmaster Pickups on Thursday, fitted today and exceedingly happy - once again, a very satisfied customer. Many thanks.
