These new pickups are based on Seth Lover’s Wide Range humbuckers from the '70s and use high-output coils paired with adjustable magnetized poles.

Nashville, TN (March 4, 2019) -- Great for players looking for a humbucking option that preserves the “Fender sound” of their Jazzmaster, Jazzmaster Chromium pickups deliver the sound and “buck” the hum. Based on Seth Lover’s Wide Range Humbuckers from the '70s, Chromium pickups use high-output coils paired with adjustable magnetized poles. This gives the humbuckers more chime and clarity than your standard PAF. The coils can also be split, giving you the option of great sounding single coils.

43 AWG plain-enamel wire is scatterwound onto each bobbin bringing output to 12.7K ohms in the bridge and 10.9K ohms in the neck. FeCrCo 5 adjustable poles and AlNiCo 5 solid poles provide beautiful, sparkling highs and strong lows. Four-conductor lead wire for coil-splitting and wiring diagram included.

  • Hand-assembled in the USA
  • Aggressive vintage tone
  • Drop-in replacements for most Jazzmasters
  • Adjustable poles for string-to-string balance
  • Lifetime manufacturer’s warranty

Handmade in Schuyler’s Nashville workshop, Jazzmaster Chromium Pickups are $145 each.

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
