The SurfJag is one of the most alive and juicy Strat type pickup that Kinman make, it's so alive and juicy it outshines most non-noiseless single coils. Archetypel Non-Aged Fender® sound delivers exceptional dynamic range and explosive thwack attack, excellent transparent piano mid tones and harmonic ring, outstanding twang, sweet blooming highs.
This Zero-Hum Jaguar* pickup for Surf is like our non-aged-sound Impersonator E56 Strat® pickup but because Jags have a shorter scale length the sound will be deeper, more throaty. Think Dick Dale's dynamic surf classic Miserlou and you'll have a good idea of how this pickup sounds.
Position 2 produces absolutely authentic Knopfler-sque sounds.
Recommended particularly for low and medium gain applications where you need the archetype Fender* sound, tone & feel. Its also terrific for sounds with gain.
Choose a Punk-Jag bridge pickup if you want a compatible fatter bridge sound, however position 2 will be changed perceptibly.
IMPORTANT info for you: Jaguars short scale results in lower string tension which produces more string crash and pitch warble however Kinmans proprietary Alnico-K* low strength magnets reduce string crash and buzz as well as allow longer sustain and minimize pitch warble.
Now includes 2 specially made replica mounting screws.
* Alnico-K is a unique proprietary rod magnet developed by Kinman in 1985. It is Alnico-5 but has 40% less string pull than Alnico-5 so sustain is longer and there is much less clatter from string crash and no Strat-itis string warble.
