Twin Sound' Sonic '60s in One Coil-Tapped Jaguar Pickup

Classic, bright sounding inner coil that becomes fatter, fuller with more-mid-range and a higher output with the added outer coil.

Scatterwound inner coil with a tightly wound outer coil pressed around the custom designed magnets and wax potted in a combination of paraffin & beeswax, the Sonic '60 'Twin Sound' pickups for Jaguar give the two distinct Sonic '60 voices in one replacement Jag pickup set. With simple push/pull pots (or my preferred push/push pots) you can have the bright Sonic'60 'Treble' sounds - then with simple switching you have a fatter, fuller, rounder, more mid-range sound with a higher output for a more versatile guitar to cover a wider range of styles.

The idea came when collaborating with a well-known Jaguar guitarist on a completely new, custom design - working on a new switching system to allow push/push pots to combine a classic bright Jag sound with the fatter, fuller, stronger alternative Jag sounds with more mid-range that he wanted for studio & live work. I took this idea to the Sonic '60 range for a new coil-tapped design.

Concentric Coils

Not everyone has two Jags so if you're looking for more versatility and a wider pallete of sounds, from bright to mid-range - then maybe the new 'Twin-Sound' range is for you. With two concentric coils, the inner is wound with standard 42awg coil wire to give you the bright, rich, single coil Sonic '60 'Treble' sound whereas the outer coil is wound with thinner 43awg to add more mid-range and change the overall sound to a fatter, fuller, warmer voice with a noticeably higher output to push more - So with the flick of a switch or push of the pot you can suddenly drive & push the sound more.

Available in Alnico 2 for a slightly warmer overall sound or Alnico 5 for a slightly clearer, more defined, attacking sound, I spent a long time getting these new 'Twin Sound' coil tap Sonic '60 pickups just right. Alnico 2 works well for the bridge but with the naturally darker neck position, I tend to prefer the stronger ALncio 5.

Please Note: These aren't hum-cancelling pickups, they have 2 coils in a concentric/coaxial design.

True Chrome Plated Jag Covers

Wanting these pickups to be something special I've had custom chrome plated Jag covers manufactured. These aren't plastic covers, they're very thin brass that I've had custom tooled and chrome plated. I've also designed them with the Tri-Sonic® style oversize holes and more rounded/rolled edge covers for a unique Jaguar look.

They do look good, especially with the classic aguar chrome control plates.

Push/Pull - Push/Push Pots

I've designed these to work well with 500k push/push or push/pull pots - 1 meg versions are available but due to the design and custom magnets I've had manufactured, and after extensive testing, I just preferred the 500k versions. Use one for the volume & one for the tone - that way the coil taps work seperately for bridge & neck giving you a wider range of sounds.
