Provides full-bodied humbucker tones for jazz, rock and country guitarists.
The JM Two/Tone for the Jazzmaster is a variation of Joe Burden Pickups' HBTwo/Tone pickups that adds a new dimension to the Jazzmaster. Retained are all the beloved surfy single-coil tones, but now for the first time a range of full-bodied humbucker tones for jazz, rock, country as well as other muscial styles that benefit from the extended capabilities offered by the JM Two/Tone. All these sounds are at your fingertips using the noiseless mode switching inherent in the JM Two/Tone design.
The JM Two/Tone for the Jazzmaster has been physically modified to fit under a specially made slotted Jazzmaster cover for drop in replacement of your stock Jazzmaster pickups. A simple replacment of the existing œlead Volume and Tone pots on the lower control section of the guitar with Push/Pull pots offer easy mode switching without modification to this classic instrument.
The dual-mode JM Two/Tone allows Jazzmaster players to retain all the glory of single-coil surf tones plus the added drive for rock, jazz or country sounds, making the Jazzmaster a more versatile instrument for Jazzmaster players.

Comments about Joe Barden Pickups (Barden) JM Two/Tone Guitar Bridge and Neck Pickup Set for Jazzmaster:
I have a set of JBE pickups in a Telecaster, so I figured I'd give these a try in my Jazzmasyer build. I had a standard set of Jazzy pickups in the guitar originally and the tone was good, but the 60 cycle hum on those large single coils can be pretty annoying. The JBe pickups are dead quite. They have a "single coil" mode that's dead quite and pretty dang close to a real Jazzmaster pickup, but they also have a humbucker tone that can come in very handy. Just be aware in order to get the most out of these pickups to need 2 push-pull pots or the ability to add some switching. I have a custom build, so I didn't mind getting creative with the switching. My only other gripe is that the leads come pretty short on the pickups, I had JUST enough length wire up a switch from the bridge pickup to the upper horn cavity. Overall the tone was great and versatile.
