More details

Bridge pickup of the" Jazzmaster® Original " model, hand wound by Jess Loureiro.

This pickups have single coil format and is made with the same materials and characteristics as those mounted on the pre-CBS era Jazzmasters®. The pickup is potted in a beeswax-paraffin mix, which prevents the microphonic problems without reducing richness of sound. The coils are made from black "forbon" and they have vintage cloth-wire like the originals. They are wound by hand with 42 AWG Heavy Formvar wire, that gives a sound richer in harmonics and with a lot of "quak". The Alnico 5 magnets have been "calibrated" and charged one by one by hand, as they did in the 50´s.
