    Yes, but... It’s not a single coil like a Fender pup, but rather like a Gibson P90. The larger magnets give it a thicker (or rather un-thin) sound. I have one in my ‘64 Jetstar. Quite ballsy when pushed hard.

    Thanks, Chris!

    Another question just for you - does your JetStar have a single the pup in the middle? If so what do you think of that?

    Yes. Soundwise it’s great. Ergonomicswise, it’s a little tricky finding a good place to put my hand; I keep on pushing the strings onto the polepieces.
