Custom, Vintage & Modern Jaguar Pickups
Creamery Handwound Custom, Vintage & Modern Replacement Jaguar Pickups
The Fender® Jaguar®, introduced in 1962 as a high-end guitar with its intricate controls never really sold as well as expected, ultimately being taken out of production in 1975 - Yet its here where the popularity really bagan to take off. Whereas the Jag originally became popular with the '60s surf sound, it was late '70 post-punk, New Wave & alternative scenes that kept the design alive. Bought cheaply 2nd hand from pawn and thrift stores they quickly became part of the leftfield, especially as the offset design appealed to those looking away from classic rock & blues music - classic Strat & Les Paul designs.
Later through US alternative, UK shoegaze and effects laden styles of the '80s/90's onwards, through to modern day independent sounds - many bands and guitarists seem drawn to the offset Jaguar style.
I make a number of different replacement Jaguar pickups - From classic early & mid '60s surf through mid/late '70s Post Punk & New Wave through to modern day, they're all custom made here in my Manchester workshop.
If you're looking for something to the left of classic rock & blues, welcome to my custom, handwound, replacement Jaguar Pickups.
PLEASE NOTE: All my standard 6-Pole Replacement Jaguar Pickups are vintage correct to US standard 51.5mm Pole spacing but I can create a custom set with alternative pole spacing if you need - Just get in touch and let me know. If you have a Squier or CIJ Jaguar your covers may have a slightly wider 52mm pole spacing - But I do have replacement covers to fit - And of course, you can still use your existing steel claws.
I've developed a specific method of wax potting my Jag pickusp with the covers & claws on to relly cut down on the potential of microphonics & squealing at gain or with effects & pedals etc but of course, if you'd rather not have your replaceent Jag pickups wax potted with the covers on, just let me know.
All my replacement Jazzmaster pickups are handwound here at my workshop in Manchester. I don;t have them all boxed up ready to send out, each one is custom made to order.
