Hum-Cancelling Steel-Pole Jazzmaster FEATURES:

Are you searching for P90 tone for your Jazzmaster, but hate hum? This pickup will provide you with the results you’re searching for. Lindy’s Hum-Cancelling Steel Pole Jazzmaster pickups are the perfect fit for those looking to beef up their Jazzmaster. We build these pickups to the same specifications as our Fralin Steel Pole Jazzmaster Pickups, but with a unique and innovative 2-coil design for hum cancellation in all positions.

The Hum-Cancelling Jazzmaster leans more towards the tone of a P-90 than a single-coil (exactly like our Hum Cancelling P90), but with added thickness. Using 43 Gauge wire, we squeeze as much output as we can out of this set while maintaining clarity and attack.

Features:

  • Strong and bold – lots of midrange and snarl
  • USA-Made Bonded Neodymium magnets for an aggressive attack
  • Compensated Bridge output for even volume across all pickups
  • Multiple winding options to provide you with your ideal tone
  • Dead-quiet and hum-free performance
  • Adjustable Steel Pole pieces for fine-tuning string balance
  • Hand-wound with our “Sectioning” technique for unique, dynamic tone
  • Hand-built for unrivaled quality control, and inspected three times during the manufacturing process
  • 10-Year Warranty on manufacturing defects

 

Sound

When playing clean, these pickups sound thick and powerful, especially in the midrange and top-end. Closer to the sound of a P90, our Hum-Cancelling Steel Pole Jazzmaster Pickups will provide you with an aggressive, thick tone that is perfect for balancing out a bright-sounding guitar or for those looking for more growl in their sound. Do you like distortion? You’ll undoubtedly get some push out of this set. Hum-Cancelling Steel Pole Jazzmasters provide you with that famous P90 “chainsaw” grind instead of a smoother AlNiCo distortion.

We also feature multiple winding options: a 5% underwind, or 5% overwind option. Underwinding a pickup cleans up the midrange and emphasizes the highs – think “clearer and cleaner”, while overwinding thickens and darkens the pickup’s tone. Our Stock Set is the perfect and ideal balance, to our ears.

It all starts here: our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. Hum-Cancelling Steel Pole Jazzmaster pickups consist of a precision injection mold and USA-Made Steel Screws. We use aggressive USA-Made Neodymium magnets to make this model scream, with a pronounced pick attack. Each bobbin is carefully inspected and cleaned before winding.

We wind each pickup by hand, one at a time, and wind each pickup 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.

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.

    I am thoroughly blown away by these pickups! These are even quieter than my hum-bucking guitars. As someone with absolutely no knowledge on inner wiring and electronics of a guitar, I found installing these relatively simple. I used Lindy’s Jazzmaster PDF wiring diagram, a newly purchased Weller soldering kit and a few of the tips and tricks PDFs I was emailed and knocked this out by myself with no issues. The wiring was a bit different than what came stock in the Jazzmaster, so that took a little figuring out, but once it made since, it was smooth sailing. The tone, silence and sustain of these pickups are giving my Jazzmaster new life and is now my go-to guitar. I use lots of overdrive and high gain and these are still dead silent. Great work, Lindy!

    Amazing pickups. No hum or annoying noise, but perfectly clear and bright. They sound fantastic in my Jazzmaster

  3. David Haer
    Verified Buyer

    Very happy with these pickups! Great for clean tones and can go to the highest levels of fuzz without losing the mid range.
