- Hand-Aged 1950's Jazzmaster Neck Pickup
- Calibrated Alnico 2 Rod Magnets
- Cloth Push-back Braided Wire
- Lacquered and Wax Potted
- Made in USA
The Seymour Duncan Antiquity Jazzmaster Neck pickup uses specially calibrated Alnico 2 rod magnets with a unique coil wind for that classic Ventures tone. The coil wind softens the treble attack for a sweeter, smokier overall tone. The treble response has snap and sparkle, but is not harsh, while the bass response is nice and tight.
This is a period-correct vintage replica of the original pickup for the late 50's Jazzmaster®. The Antiquity for Jazzmaster neck pickup is wound RWRP so that, when used together with the bridge model, they will be hum-cancelling.
The Antiquity Jazzmaster pickups have traditional pole spacing. The magnets are protruding from the top and bottom of the flatwork for a smooth, even response. Each pickup is recreated to fit in your old classic and comes with a detailed wiring diagram.
This pickup is a drop-in replacement for any Fender American Standard sized Jazzmaster pickup, and will fit nicely into the existing cover. Hand built in the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop, this pickup uses Alnico 2 rod magnets, a custom coil wind with heavy formvar mag wire, vintage-correct flatwork, cloth push-back lead wire, and they are all lacquered and wax potted like the originals.
