Revel Vintage Jazzmaster Pickups
My Jazzmaster pickups are made to vintage specs.
Re-issue and recreation Jazzmaster pickups often have a much taller coil than vintage Jazzmaster pickups. Or the magnets are too long or too strong. Or both and they’re wound on a machine. You can easily hear the difference. The re-issues and the poorer recreations sound like a Strat pickup or like something, well, bad. But they don’t sound like a JM pickup. My pickups use the correct, 1/8″ tall, coil dimension. They’re a little tough to assemble, plainly tricky to wind, but all the effort pays off in vintage Jazzmaster tone.
Famous for surf, perfect for shoe gaze & indie rock, and anything from Kurt Cobain to Elvis Costello.
“The sparkle of a Strat and the grunt of an LP.”
