    if you would get new "upgraded" jazz pu´s outside of the regular suspects (Fender, Fralin, Nordy, Lollar etc.) what would they be?


    Small manufacture ($ > can be more than Fralin, Nordy, Lollar...)
    In production as we speak or at least obtainable with some work
    Tone? Check https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rE5wDSjrZts
    - I like the Dame Sanctus, Fralin and Model J the best. So we are looking at something like a fusion of these only better :bag:

    The purpose of this thread is to bring to my knowledge the not so much spoken small manufactures that might be doing what I covet.

    Personal taste is exactly that and obviously it depends in the tone you are going for but some pickup makers you didn't mention are:

    Delano (a few different jazz pickups)
    Suhr (SC and humcancelling)
    Reed James (vintage vibe Neos)
    Wilde/Bill Lawrence (underrated JBs from a pioneer - RIP Bill)

    And there are a ton more for other people to mention.
