Neck pickup of the" Jazzmaster® Surf" model, hand wound by Jess Loureiro.

The pickup have single coil format and is made with the same materials and characteristics as those mounted on the early CBS era Jazzmasters®. The pickup is potted in the right mix of beeswax-paraffin, which prevents the microphonic problems without reducing richness of sound. The coils are made from grey "forbon" and they have vintage cloth-wire like the originals. They are wound by hand with 42 AWG Plain Enamel wire, that gives more definition of the notes and a mid-focused sound. The Alnico 5 magnets have been "calibrated" and charged one by one by hand, as they did in the 50´s. The neck pickup is RW/RP to get the "hum-cancelling" in the middle position.
