    Default What compares to a Jazzmaster Quarterpound?

    Hello forum, new as I am! Looks like there´s more interesting to read here than I ever will...

    Question that seems to haunt me:

    The guitar of my choice is a Fender Jazzmaster, but now I want more, or do I? I´ve aquired a strat and a tele, and of course I´ve changed the pups. Sometimes I wounder why they put pups in new guitar for starters, the stock ones never measure up to my standards at least.

    No matter how I twist and turn, I still want more. The by far best pup I own (or played) is my Seymour Duncan SJM-3 quarter-pound™ for jazzmaster.

    WHAT CAN POSSIBLY COMPARE TO THAT IN STANDARD HUMBUCKER SIZE?

    I have Quarterpound SC for Jaguar in my jag, but it´s not even close.

    A few facts: I play heavily distorted, I play neck pup.

    ANY HINTS APPRECIATED!

    Love from Sweden / Akhagen

    Welcome to the forum. Here's the thing: I don't know


    However, I was wondering what your experiences are with that pickup

    the QP in your jag sounds different because jags use 1 meg pots

    switch out the pots (for 250k), and you'll get a more similar sound.

    Other than that, I can't help you with QPs. I prefer low output in my Jags and JMs

    (I have avatars and sigs turned off. Do you?)

    Listening to the clips on the Duncan page the Jag sounds deeper and more defined. I like it more than the j-master clips.

    I think that the QP for Jazzmaster, and I by accident have a bridge pup in neck position, is fantastic. I holds a very wide range of tonality, great bass as well as shiny trebles at least.

    On my tele I now use a p94 in neck position, and it works, but not as transparent and nice as in my jazzmaster. Of course, there's a billion other differences, but still.

    So I'm looking for something in HB-size to replace the p94, and yet another to put in my homebuilt strat. I live by the simple rule that single coil is what I need, and that the bigger the coil...

    Is there any experience within this forum of single coils in HB-size?

    Love from Sweden
