I feel I have neglected you 'offset' fans .... sooooooo
I took the opportunity of being off with my hernia op to put the finishing touches to some ideas and pickups I have had waiting in the wings for a while. The first (above) is the Oil City ClassiCat ... a vintage output Jaguar pickup, hand scatter wound, and with the ferrous claw potted on to eliminate microphonic squeal. 7k  bridge, 5.9k neck ... alnico 5. with cloth hookup wire and aged white covers ... glassy and open with just a shade more output at the bridge.

Joining that shortly will be the HardCat ... a higher output, fatter version.

Both will be available with or without claws. 

I am going to be taking pics of the Jazzmaster offerings shortly ... these will include a classic output version, a high output variant, and a P90 style, twin magnet version.

    What were the specifications of these, please?

    Did you devise any other weird and/or wonderful replacement pickup designs for the Jaguar?
    Be seeing you.

    Demand was very low for Jaguar and Jazzmaster ... and in order to buy components and keep producing these things you need to sell them. There are other UK makers that do more in this specialised area and they tend to get all the interest ... so I'm happy not to tread on their toes.
