Higher Output, Darker, Warmer Jazzmaster Sound
Wound to hotter specs with a slightly taller coil height, The Creamery 'Dark Star' is a hotter, darker, warmer Jazzmaster pickup with a unique full, higher output tone while still retaining much of that vintage single coil clarity and spank. I've really designed it for those who want more warmth and a darker sound from their Jazzmaster without changing any of the electrics. Jazzmasters usually have 1meg pots which allow much more brightness through. These darker Jazzmaster pickups balance this.
Alnico 2 gives a warmer, darker sound whereas Alnico 5 and 8 give more punch & attack.
