Jazzmaster Wide Range Pickups
Jazzmasters are wonderful guitars to modify. The electrics and cavity space make them great for playing around with. One of the more popular modifications, and perhaps the one I get asked about the most is adding Wide Range Humbuckers to the Jazzmaster. Its a simple modification that gives a great versatile sound.

Jazzmaster Replacement Pickups - The Wide Range Humbucker Sound
It was the new wave / alternative / indie scene that perhaps breathed life back into the Jazzmaster guitar from the late '70s onwards. Available cheaply in second hand pawn shops, the Jazzmaster became a popular guitar to modify and wth bands such as Sonic Youth & My Bloody Valentine from the '80s onwards visibly using modified versions onstage, the popularity of the Jazzmaster increased.
Modifying the Jazzmaster with Wide Range Humbuckers
The reason I get so many emails & requests for the Wide Range humbucker in a Jazzmaster size is the sheer versatility of the Wide Range sound. Essentially two single coils together with individual adjustable threaded magnets over a ferrous reflector plate, it balances the warmth & midrange of a standard humbucker with the clarity & definition of a single coil that's great for effects and cutting through the mix. Played clean, there's a great 'doubled up' single coil sound.
