Pickup Kit for Jazz Bass

(Customer's Reviews)

This is a great kit, it's easy to work with and the result is a quality pickup but the pole pieces could be shorter in order to have flush pole pieces over the bobbin


Just wound these up

(Customer's Reviews)

I just finished winding these pups. They are very good, the slugs fit well not overtight, plus you have all that you need. The only downside is that you need to install the brass eyelets yourself. Thank you Stewmac.


Great and wonderful kit!

(Customer's Reviews)

I use this kit on a Fender Jazz bass Japan made, and really made this bass shine! Vintage, but very dynamic with great tone!
