When the Jazz bass was introduced, the music world was rocked yet again by fantastic new tone and options for a progressing bass community. These pickups are a faithful recreation of the Jazz Bass single coils of the early 60s. Our Vintage Jazz Bass pickups stay true to the originals by capturing that warm tone with just the right amount of midrange.
The neck model is full sounding, and brings in a nice, rich bottom end without being boomy. It is wound RWRP so that it will hum-cancel when used together with the bridge pickup. The bridge model is smooth and punchy and delivers a brightness that is a perfect balance for the warmer neck model. These pickups are drop-in replacements for any American Standard Jazz Bass.
Since 1978, we’ve been hand building all of our vintage Fender style single coil pickups with the right color and thickness of Forbon flatwork, along with the period correct hand ground alnico 5 rod magnets. Each pickup comes complete with waxed and tinned cloth pushback hook-up wires. We hand file the flatwork, assemble, and lacquer the bobbin just as it was done during Fender’s Golden Age. Both pickups come with black, non-logo covers.
