At last, Zero-Hum pickups for the neglected Fender Jaguar*. Our Jaguar pickups are based on our 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.
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.
NOTE: We have Off White, Ivory and Black covers to suit USA Jags but for Japanese & Squire Jags we have only Cream covers. Use your original covers for other colors. 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: We now include 2 of our special made replica mounting screws (3-Sep-2018).
Click the Tabs at the left for details of the following Models available:-
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.
Some people will call these noiseless Jaguar pickups but Kinman prefers to describe them correctly as Zero-Hum Jaguar pickups. That's because there are 2 types of noise, Hum which is cancelled in the pickup and Buzz which can only be minimized by shielding the wiring cavities (refer to >Technical >Perfect Guitar >Shielding for newer guitars
