FDP Forum / Fender Guitars: Jaguars & Jazzmasters / Jaguar 65 or 62 pickups



Feb 5th, 2017 10:32 AM   Edit   Profile  

Hi, i own a CIJ Jaguar which i'm quite sure is a 62 reissue. I'd like to upgrade it with Fender US pickups but i don't know which are te best between the "65 pure vintage" sold in pair or the 62 sold as unit (neck or bridge). As they are more expensive i assume the 65 are better but if anyone as an opinion about that, it'll be welcome!

I seem to remember that the 62's claimed to use the same machines, methods and materials as the originals (when they were first released) and i think that 65 claimed to be more exact to the original specs (however that is done). I have a avri 62 and i wouldn't change a thing about the pickups- that being said, one vote for 62's

I have read that a lot of people are pleased with the AV65 pickups.

They would be a good place to start.
