    Great Tone Humbucker Tone.

    The J-Mod Mod Humbucker has the sweet tone & clarity of our 1958 Twang-Tron & the aggressive nature of our 1961 Punchy P.A.F. Humbuckers. This set does not use pole screws like your typical humbucker, instead we employ two rows of slugs. We once read that Seth Lover said the original PAF proto-types were made this way. This design gives you a unique look & the tone is just as special. 

    They sound great clean or dirty. You can drive your tube amp into beautiful overdrive or get great tones from your favorite dirt pedal. @JayLeonardJ helped us design this set & he made sure they sounded great with all of his vintage & modern gear before giving his seal or approval.

    Pro Tested – On the Road & in the Studio

    Jay Leonard Juatco is a professional composer, front-man, session player, touring guitarist & all around great guy. Jay is no stranger to the road, the studio or great tone. He is one of the most influential tone-chasing guitarists on the scene these days. He's been using our pickups in for several years now in multiple guitars. It's an honor that such an amazing talent chooses our pickups to achieve his tone & it was a privilege to work on this design with him.  

    Jay had big ideas for this Humbucker set & we were honored that he felt we were up to the task. R&D on this set took several years & there were multiple revisions along the way. The J-Mod Humbucker set is a pro set made for and designed by a pro. 

    Do you feel like you've met Jay before? You may recognize Jay from demos on our site or product video's he's done for the likes of Roland, Fender, Keeley, H&K, Quilter Labs, Wampler, Yamaha and many others. He's a busy musician that's toured the world & logged many years of studio time. 

    Vintage Tone - Modern Innovation.

    Our painstaking design and testing process has yielded pickups that that sound great with tube amps, pedals, solid state amps, digital devices and even software. 

    Tonal Details:

    • Bridge is a P.A.F. inspired with great clarity & warmth.
    • Neck is wide open sounding & very well balanced.
    • The middle position sounds amazing, kind of like a big Tele.

    How to Buy/Pricing

    Our Humbucker Pickup Sets start at $598 - Due to overwhelming demand, the current wait is 6 to 10 weeks on most sets but this set will not be ready for shipment until January 2021. To order click the "Add to Cart" at the top of the page.

    Our building process takes a little longer than most pickup winders and we have rigorous testing that is performed on all pickups before they ship. This includes sound test. The goal is to make pickups that will not only inspire you when you get them but also 20 or 30 years down the road. We want these to be the last pickups you get. 

    Players with good ears seem to hear the difference right away. In fact, just about every pro we've dealt with has ordered multiple sets altering hearing how these pickups transform the feel & the tone of their instrument. We are sure you will appreciate the attention to detail when you hear your new pickups.
