The mid-’60s Jaguar was an important part of the surf guitar sound for countless Southern California bands, and was heard on many TV and movie soundtracks. This vintage single-coil pickup recreates that classic sound. Our custom Antiquity aging process adds a sweetness to the Antiquity II Jaguar’s top end, while retaining its bright, chimey focus, even if you’re playing through a wash of reverb (as you should be). Pair with the RW/RP Antiquity II Jaguar neck pickup for hum-canceling operation when used together. When used on its own, the Antiquity II Jaguar neck model is surprisingly versatile, going way beyond surf into funk, alt-rock, and psychedelic realms. These pickups are drop-in replacements for any Fender American Standard-sized Jaguar pickup, and will fit into the existing cover and claw. Hand built in our Custom Shop, this pickup incorporates hand-ground Alnico 5 rod magnets, a custom coil wind with heavy formvar mag wire, vintage-correct bottom gray flatwork, and cloth push-back lead wire. All Antiquity II Jaguar vintage single-coil pickups are lacquered and wax potted like the originals.
The Antiquity II Jaguar vintage single-coil pickup uses calibrated Alnico 5 rod magnets and a custom coil wind for a focused ’60s surf tone that is bright and jangly.
