Improve the tone of your Jazzmaster today with our Hum-Cancelling Jazzmaster pickups. Whether you are a professional recording artist or a local hero, you understand the importance of getting rid of that pesky hum. Hum Cancelling pickups from other manufacturers always fall short of that real Jazzmaster tone, but at Fralin Pickups, we have the perfect solution. Lindy’s unique hum-canceling design provides you with the purest single-coil tone you can get out of a hum-free pickup.
Our Hum Cancelling Jazzmasters features a clear, round bottom end, with smooth and sparkly highs. Expect a balanced and clear midrange with an excellent string definition. You’ll love the familiar Fender pick attack as single notes sound clear and round, and chords will sound warm and defined.
Do you play clean? If so, you’ll find this set’s tone incredibly beautiful as the USA-Made Alnico 5 Magnets supply plenty of Fender sparkle. Playing with distortion will yield creamy, silky tones with a smooth, late breakup. We can overwind this model by 5% to give you more output and a darker and beefier tone – ask for it in the “Notes” field.
Our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. Our Hum-Cancelling Jazzmaster Pickups consist of a precision injection mold and USA-Made wire. We use smooth-sounding USA-Made magnets to make this model clear and balanced. Each bobbin is carefully inspected and cleaned before winding.
We wind each pickup by hand, one at a time, using our proprietary “Sectioning” technique. This gives the pickup a sweet, clear tone. Finally, we wax-pot the pickup to preserve the pickup and prevent microphonics.
This pickup is hum cancelling and features reversible polarity if purchased with 2-Conductor With Shield Lead. You might need to rout out a bit of wood to make these pickups fit. Some customers were required to rout about 1/16" - 1/8" from their pickup cavities. On American Vintage Reissue Guitars (AVRI), you'll need to lift the Copper Plate, rout some of the wood (1/8" - 1/4"), and replace the copper plate.

If just replacing the neck pickup, will I have even volume once lead is attached for existing system?
Q If just replacing the neck pickup, will I have even volume once lead is attached for existing sys...... Read moreA Hey Mike, it depends on what you are pairing our pickup with. We normally recommend purchasing pickups in a set as they are compensated in terms of tone and output. That said, our Hum Cancelling Jazzmasters are not a "High Output" model - they are more vintage output. - Tyler

Hey Eric, it should be - we use 2-Conductor With Shield wire (Hot, Ground, Shield), which is more versatile than Cloth Wiring. I'd take a look under your pickguard, and if you see cloth wire, you'll have no issues wiring this up.
Will these pickups easily fit a squier j mascis jazzmaster?

Hey Stephen, yes, these pickups should fit just fine, but please take a look at our dimensions on the "Sizing" tab and double-check your measurements against ours. The only issue that could come up would be the pickup height, as our Hum Cancelling Jazzmasters are a bit taller than a standard Jazzmaster.
Do my existing pickup covers fit these pickups?

Hey Peter, as long as you have 52mm pole piece spacing, your covers will fit just fine.
I bought this pickup. Can you tell me the recommended string height for both sides, and the value of the tone capacitor?

Hey Art, if your pots are 1Meg, I would definitely recommend going to 500K or even 300K for a jazzier tone.
I have a Fender Ultra JM with the stock noiseless pickups. Is there much difference between these and the ones I currently have?

Hey Wes, yes. those pickups are a Stacked design - which Lindy avoids as he believes it doesn't sound as good as his design. Our design is a "Side by side" or "Sidewinder" design and gives a much clearer and more articulate tone.
This pickup may well be my favorite Fralin, tone wise, but I have a PRS SE cu24 (humbuckers), and so the jazzmaster pup will not fit my guitar. What (Humbucker) pup can you wind for me that will sound the closest to the Fralin h.c. Jazzmaster clip I heard on SoundCloud? ??? Guessing: H.C. P90 with slight under-wind? Alnico Noiseless P90 with slight over-wind? Over-wound P92?
- What’s the String Spacing?
Q What’s the String Spacing?A 52mm.
How do you orient the pickup?
Q How do you orient the pickup?A The D magnet will be the tallest magnet – so the leads come out of the “treble” side.
What’s the tonal difference between this and your Standard Jazzmaster?
Q What’s the tonal difference between this and your Standard Jazzmaster?A No Hum, of course! Other than that, not much. It’s very clean, clear, and articulate. The midrange might be a little bigger, and the highs might be slightly softer in the Hum-Cancelling version.
Is this noiseless set appropriate for a left- handed guitar?
Q Is this noiseless set appropriate for a left- handed guitar?A Yes – this set will work both Left and Right handed.
