good pickups for the price

(Customer's Reviews)

cant be beat for the price, but with the last ones I bought the magnet holes where off center giving me slight trouble fitting them in the covers, had to widen the holes a tad+ countersink the from inside
worked out in the end, and would buy the again anyhow


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.
