Upgrade Fender® Reissue Jazzmaster Pickups to Handwound Creamery Vintage Jazzmaster Pickups
The traditional tele neck sound – A clear bright tone with smooth mid frequencies and warm, rounded lows. The soft attack of the Alnico 2 poles is ideal for a clean tele sound. Nickel plated silver cover, vintage style cloth covered lead wire and wax potted – can be matched with a vintage tele bridge for a 50s tele sound and great for reverb.

There was just something about it. When tapped it had that ‘ring’, that sound that was far more than the usual dull thud you get with many woods. Maybe its the many blocks of birch laminated together under pressure. Maybe its the 40mm thickness. Maybe, maybe, maybe. One thing’s for sure – it sounds good.
Our take on the vintage tele bridge pickup of the early ’50s. Flat Alnico 2 polepieces pressed into handcut vulcanised flatwork. We scatterwind (hand feed) the 42AWG (46SWG) thin copper wire to build the coil to around 8.0k.
