What’s the difference between a Jaguar and a Jazzmaster?
In summary the main differences between the Jazzmaster and the Jaguar come down to the scale length and pickups used. The Jaguar has three pickup switches at the bottom of the guitar. The Jazzmaster will often opt for soapbar style pickups whereas the Jaguar will have exposed humbucking or single coil pickups.
Can you make a Jazzmaster sound like a Strat?
So my ideal Jazzmaster would be built onto a Strat style body and have not just two, but three pickups. There are other good reasons for owning a Jazzmaster ‘sound’. So, here’s a nifty little project which gives you 90%, or more, of the Jazzmaster sound on a comfortable Strat body, with a vibrato unit that works well.
What is the difference between a Jazzmaster and a Stratocaster?
Stratocasters sound brighter than Jazzmasters because they have three single coil pickups. Jazzmasters sound more warm and mellow by comparison, as they have wider pickups instead, and some even have humbuckers.

What’s the difference between 42 and 43 gauge pickups?
Note the actually outside diameter (OD) varies slightly even though it’s the same gauge. As the gauge number increases, the OD of the wire decreases (42 gauge wire is thicker than 43 gauge wire). Potting: dipping a pickup in wax to seal the windings to minimize vibration so the pickup feedbacks less (and is not “microphonic”).
When did the chamfering on Fender pickups stop?
This causes many 1965 and later Fender pickups to “warp”, where the flatwork will actually buckle and curve. Mid-1960’s magnets have a smoother edge, and eventually the chamfering of the pickups stopped entirely by the early 1970’s. Flat Work: this is the vulcanized fibre portion of Fender pickups.
When did Fender stop using magnets for pickups?
Hence the flatwork did not fit as tightly around the magnets. This causes many 1965 and later Fender pickups to “warp”, where the flatwork will actually buckle and curve. Mid-1960’s magnets have a smoother edge, and eventually the chamfering of the pickups stopped entirely by the early 1970’s.
