Jaguar® "surf" set (neck + bridge)

Jaguar® pickup set.  Warm neck and a 9,5 Kohm bridge to match the Jaguar® circuit. Alnico 5 magnets and heavy formvar wire.

More details

These pickups have single coil format and are made with the same materials and characteristics as those mounted on the CBS era Jaguars.  They have been wound by hand with 42 or 43 (bridge pickup) AWG Heavy Formvar wire and "calibrated" Alnico 5 magnets charged one by one by hand, as they did in the 50´s. This set is overwound, having more output than normal jaguar pickups. neck pickup have 6,21 and bridge have an amazing output of 9,5k. Then you will have a sweet neck pickup for clean tones and a beast sound on the bridge pickup to obtain great dirty tones. The neck pickup is RW/RP to get the "hum-cancelling" in the middle position.
 
The pickups are potted in the right mix of beeswax-paraffin, which prevents the microphonic problems without reducing richness of sound. The coils are made from "forbon" and they have vintage cloth-wire like the originals.
 
Pickups come boxed, and include the screws with spring tubing.
