Porter Jazzmaster® pickups are custom built and wound for the Jazzmaster® diehards. They feature your choice of a vintage or modern flavor wind, with distinct magnets and coil wire for each type. Available as a individual or set purchase with choice of Black, White or Cream covers. Sets will be built with the bridge pickup reverse wound/reverse polarity for hum canceling in the middle position. Lightly wax potted. Combine Vintage and Modern together or get both of one style!

Vintage Wind Spec info: 42 AWG Plain Enamel wire. Typical resistance range is 7K to upper 7k from neck to bridge. AlNiCo 2 rod magnets. Softer response, less power than the modern. More focused on smoothness, sustain while not getting too muddy. Pairs well with 2 Vintage winds or put a modern wind in the bridge for more tonal range.

Modern Wind Spec info: 42 AWG Poly Wire. Typical resistance range is 7K to upper 7k from neck to bridge. AlNiCo 5 rod magnets. Great clarity and cut through, stronger tonally than the vintage wind. Good all around pickup for neck or bridge.

Our Jazzmasters use the vintage style cloth pushback wire. White is “Hot” Black is “Ground” they will work fine in any traditional Jazzmaster wiring scheme.
