A brighter, attacking late '70s Post-Punk / New Wave inspired Pickup

Inspired by the New Wave/Post Punk era of the late '70s & early '80s, the Red '79 Jaguar Pickup has that brittle, bright attack associated with much of the music of that era - Think Gang of Four, Early Talking Heads etc. The lower in output, 42AWG coil wrapped around Custom Alnico 5 magnets gives you that cutting voice that sounds great with effects (a little phase, a little chorus ;-). As with the Telecaster & Strat Red '79s, I settled on the final designs (after many versions) to create a pickup that has that bright, brittle, fractured sound without the ice-pick shrillness of thin, lower wound pickups. To achieve this the coil is wound slightly shorter with a looser scatterwound pattern to achieve the balance I was looking for.

Its a lower output pickup really designed for that dry, chopped, attacking rhythm playing but works equally well with pedals & effects to really cut through the band mix.

NOTE: If Red really isn't your thing you can always order it in White or Black vintage String or standard Jaguar covers as well ;-)
