  • Humbucker choice for Jaguar: help needed

    I am considering getting a custom Jaguar made, and would like a pick up recommendation. I want nice articulate cleans from the neck humbucker but it needs to be able to handle fuzz and a bit of high gain. For the bridge I need something that can handle high gain distortion well as well a little bit of overdrive (perhaps punchy cleans?). I am also considering coil tap options (if that would work alright on a Jaguar that is).

    It will have a standard jaguar bridge system, and would like generic humbuckers with humbucker covers not specifically made Jaguar pick ups.

    The body is made of Ash

    So no interest in Rose Picassos then which are Jaguar sized hum bucker.

    Something from BG Pickups or Rose would be my first choice. ROse has the advantage of a faster turn around time but they both make great pickups at a very reasonable price.
    The Rose New Dawn sounds like it might be a perfect fit.

      You could go the Cobain route and throw a Dimarzio Super Distortion in the bridge.
      Gear:

      - Some guitars
      - A bass
      - Amps to accompany said guitars and bass
      - A drum kit

        This is NOT an option lol. I dislike Cobain.

            I am not a fan of DiMarzio either.

                  I'd personally go for an Air Norton in the bridge and a 36th Anniversary in the neck but since you don't like Dimarzio, you are a bad person and will likely go to hell.



                  For Duncan, I'd probably go Custom 5 and a Stag Mag in the neck.

                  And I don't think the 57 Classics would be a bad choice... Or maybe the Plus version in the bridge.

                    I have an SH5 in the bridge of my Gibson SG standard, and I certainly like that pup. But I am worried it might be too bright in ash?

                    Also, I really like the Bare knuckle Cold sweat which is very similar, so I would probo go with that if I went in that direction... but again worried about it being 'too' bright.

                    I'm having a 57 classic put in the neck of my Epiphone LP standard, and I'm looking forward to hearing how that sounds.

                      I think SH5 sounds better in bolt-ons than set necks, and (you'd probably use the TB5 anyway but) remember the 24" scale will give it a slightly darker sound anyway.

                        This is a good point, have you tried this with a Jaguar?

                            My Jag has TV Jones Classic and Classic +. I *love* it! It's my main gigging guitar and covers everything from cleans to pretty gainy sounds wonderfully. It also has a Bigsby.

                              That particular one, only on a Strat.

                              I've tried a SH4 in a Mustang and I remember thinking I'd much rather prefer an SH5.
