Greetings from Sydney, Australia + pickup question

Postby fritzsbeard » Fri Dec 02, 2016 12:18 am

Hello all,

Just bought my first Jazzmaster after many years of being primarily a keyboard/acoustic guitar player. It's with a guitar tech at the moment having a set-up but before I took it down there I took a few pics hoping for some help with pickup identification.

The guy I bought it from told me that the pick-ups were sourced from The Creamery in the UK. I've had a look through their website and can't seem to find them there. I've emailed The Creamery but haven't heard back yet. If anyone could shed any light on what these pickups are I'd be most grateful.

Thanks,

Fritz

Yo!

I am pretty sure I saw that guitar for sale on one of those Facebook buy/sell/trade groups.

Hi, and welcome!

Could well be Creamery custom humbuckers made to special order - http://www.creamery-pickups.co.uk/custo ... om-designs - one of his 12 screw pole designs in a JM cover.

Jaime at the Creamery has a great reputation for the quality of his work and his helpfulness. I emailed him a couple of weeks back and he took a few days to respond (pre-Christmas pickup winding rush!), but was really helpful. I've ordered some filtertron types for a Cabronita build, if they go well, my JM may get an upgrade before too long....
