At last, Zero-Hum pickups for the neglected Fender Jaguar®. Kinman Jaguar pickups are based on the Strat models, however since Jags have a shorter scale length the sound will be deeper, more throaty with more guts providing a 250k volume pot is used, rather than the 1 Meg original pot in Fender Jaguars which makes the sound brighter and therefore thinner.
An implication of the short scale is the strings are not as stretched as normal, this lower tension causes the strings to produce more rattle and buzz as they crash into the frets. Kinman unique low strength Alnico-5 magnets do not to pull on the strings too hard like regular Alnico-5 does - these Jag pickups will clean up your sound.
Kinman pickups for Jaguar are direct replacements and no modification to the guitar is required except for changing the lower volume pot to 250k so the pickups sound their best. However the upper volume pot is 1Meg and that causes the neck pickup to sound brighter and thinner when the upper slide switch is in the 'UP' position. Same if the lower Volume pot remains the original 1Meg.
Covers: Black and Cream for MiA and MiJ -and- Off-White & Ivory for Squires (use your original covers for other colours)
We include a special non-magnetic replacement Claw attached to the pickup. The original Chromed steel Claw must not be fitted to the Kinman pickup.
News flash: 2 special made replica mounting screws are now incuded.
Surf Jag think Dick Dale's Miserlou and you'll be close.
Punk Jag distorts easily thanks to our unique high output technology which does not compromise the transparency of the sound (no mud)
Blues Jag has a rounded sound with softer attack.
