McNelly Humbucker Jazzmaster Pickups
So if you want a little more fire in the bridge position, or perhaps lush warm Humbucker sounds for your Jazzmaster. Then we can make it happen! The full humbucker McNelly pickup range is now available in Jazzmaster sizing! They make for an easier swap that doesn't require a full pickguard replacement.
So, which Humbucker flavour will suit?
Cornucopia - The most popular humbucker choice as it's the set that seems to do everything well. They are clear and airy, with tight punch that holds together well even with overdrive. The flip side is that they still keep the organic and sweet feel of a great PAF. Take them from sweet blues and jazz to driving rock and they'll thank you for it.
Autumn - If warm and lush is the goal, this Low/Medium output set is superb. Roll back the tone and the neck lives for jazz with round woody tone. The bridge, with it's creamy mids, makes single note work full without being brash.
Bliss - A low output set with the stunning complexity and the warmth of Alnico 2. These are for you If you're looking for refined vintage tone, but want to have a little more presence.
Clarity - The Clarity set has a little more output than the other sets. The neck delivers punchy low end with an open sounding top end that is clear and articulate. The bridge is wound with two different coil specs for a more balanced frequency response.
*Humbucker pole pieces are taller than a vintage Jazzmaster pickup. You may need to make some space if they hit the bottom of the pickup cavity.
McNelly pickups are listed individually, so simply add the neck and/or bridge pickup in the cover option you wish, to the cart. Covers are are available in Cream, White & Black.
These great pickups are currently hand made to order in Canada. All made to order pickups have a estimated lead time to your door of around 4-5 weeks. We'll always do our best to shorten this estimate and keep you updated when they are leaving the McNelly workshop or if it is looking to be any longer.
