To give you that classic 60s instrumental tone, the Antiquity
II for Jazzmaster uses calibrated alnico 5 rod magnets with a period
correct coil wind.
We use hand ground
alnico 5 rod magnets, with our special coil wind to deliver bright, 60s
Jazzmaster tone that is glassy and crisp, with just the right balance of
bridge position snap. Chords have a sharp, clear quality, and solos
really jump out with that bright, 60s Surf tone. Use with the RWRP
Antiquity II Jazzmaster neck pickup so that, when used together, they
will be hum-canceling. 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 our Custom Shop, this pickup uses
hand ground alnico 5 rod magnets, a custom coil wind with heavy formvar
mag wire, vintage-correct gray flatwork, cloth push-back lead wire, and
they are all lacquered and wax potted like the originals.
