These pickups have single coil format and are made with the same materials and characteristics as those mounted on the pre-CBS era Jazzmasters ® . The pickups are potted in the right mix of beeswax-paraffin, which prevents the microphonic problems without reducing richness of sound. The coils are made from black "forbon" and they have vintage cloth-wire like the originals. They are wound by hand with 42 AWG Heavy Formvar wire, that gives a sound richer in harmonics and with a lot of "quak". The Alnico 5 magnets have been "calibrated" and charged one by one by hand, as they did in the 50´s. The neck pickup is RW/RP to get the "hum-cancelling" in the middle position. The set have a compensated output being 7,9k for the neck and 8,8 for the bridge.Potted in beeswax-paraffin mix Neck pickup RW/RP (hum-cancelling in the middle position) Output: 7.9 k (neck) / 8.8 k (bridge) Wire: 42 AWG Heavy Formvar Magnets: "calibrated" ... read more
