We are very proud to offer our Vintage ’62 Jazzmaster pickups set for all you offset guitar aficionados! The Jazzmaster pickup is a unique design within pickup history utilising a short height bobbin but with a coil spread very wide under its cover. Taking its tonal footprint from such a wide area gives it a sound unlike any other pickup design with the our ’62s offering a deep and warm tone with gorgeous character in the neck position and the bridge giving you unrivalled bite and twang. Coupled together in the middle position this set offers stunning clarity which shimmers with every polite (or impolite!) wobble of the vibrato arm. Whether you’re enjoying some classic Surf guitar or more modern styles of playing, the range of sounds on offer is hard to beat. Our ’62 Set features Alnico V polepieces and period correct 42 gauge Heavy Formvar wire to nail those classic JM tones perfectly.

We are heavily into the Jazzmaster in the Radioshop workshop at the moment having had a recent bout of JM modding fever. In the video below, Radioshop’s Paul Best gives a review of a lovely Jazzmaster we’ve acquired for workshop use and takes you through some mods which we think have improved the instrument no end. Plus there are some sounds at the end of the video of our ’62 Set in action. Enjoy and keep your eyes on further Jazzmaster developments from us in the near future as we’re working on something special and very new which (R&D time allowing!) will hopefully be coming in 2024 …

Delivery By default all of our pickups are shipped with Royal Mail who we find to be excellent both within the UK and Internationally. Their rates enable us to offer prices that are very reasonable for our customers and the timeframe is great for the vast majority of countries. We find that, once despatched, Royal Mail tend to take 1 working day within the UK, 2/3 working days within the EU, 4/5 working days to North America and Worldwide. These are guidelines and of course some countries differ and the level of ‘officiousness’ in customs departments differs massively worldwide. If ordering from a country which is notorious for taking a while to process imported goods (we can think of a few!) please build this into your expectation on the timeframe after despatch. How long will it take to make? As a small pickup maker handmaking within an extremely busy workshop we expect to complete all pickups sets within 16-20 working days (Relic’ed orders 5 days longer). We sometimes work quicker than those timeframes and we’ll always endeavour to finish your pickups as quick as we are able to of course. We can sometimes process a rush order if you have an upcoming, important concert or perhaps if you are buying for a relative’s birthday etc - feel free to message and we’ll always see what we can do.
