These are Vintage ’72 Wide Range Humbuckers built to fit Jazzmaster guitars. These use the same vintage correct bobbins and threaded magnet/Alnico combination as the Vinage ’72s but mounted to a Jazzmaster sized base. The threaded pole pieces have 54mm spacing in the neck and bridge and are fully adjustable.
Read all about the Revel Vintage ’72 pickups here.
These mount the same as stock Jazzmaster pickups and require nothing special nor any modifications.
Like the stock Vintage ’72 both the neck and the bridge are wound with equal number of turns. If you want the neck under-wound for better balance between positions please let me know. The “underwound Neck” checkbox is for an 8.8k wind to go with stock JM pickups or to retain more Jazzmaster qualities.
Bridge & Neck: 10.7k
Underwound Neck: 8.8k

First of all, Jesse offers just about the best customer service I have ever received from any company. We exchanged several e-mails in which we discussed the sound I was looking for. He was extremely helpful. As for the pickup sound. The guitar I put them in is an American Ultra Jazzmaster, which I loved except for the pickups, I felt they were too sterile. Let’s just say this Is my favorite guitar now. This is exactly what I was looking for. Just perfect balance of top end and low end, while retaining THAT Jazzmaster sound. It almost feels like Single Coil meets Humbucker sound. Responds very well to playing. It’s very sensitive. Thanks Jesse! I will soon place another order for other guitars.

This pickup sounds so so good! Is the perfect amount of lows and highs, I use it on the neck position, sounds great clean, also with ODs, if you feel like your JM pickup sounds weak you should get this pickup! The build quality is outstanding, don’t think it too much! This is a great pickup and would take your offset guitar to another level!

You want great sounding pickups, this is the man. I ordered a set of these pickups, put them in my Jazzmaster, and ding! I heard the sound that was in my head come through my amp. I have guitar plans for the future and this is my go to man. ’72 reissue telecaster here I come. “YOU THE MAN” Jesse!
I put this in the neck of my jazzmaster. I wanted to thicken up the overall tone but still maintain clarity, which is exactly what this did. Easy swap, exact fit and color match. I highly recommend this fir anyone looking to thicken their jazzmaster sound!
I wanted to reduce the hum while having the bright sound of single coils compared to a regular humbucker, and this does exactly that. I replaced the neck classic player pickup (almost a P90!) in my guitar, and the sound is pretty amazing, almost like an old telecaster in the middle position, but with more punch. The color match is perfect with the stock pickup cover, and the size is identical to the stock Fender.
If you need more beef in your Jazzmaster but want your guitar to still sound like a Fender, give it a try!
