Golden Age Pickups for Jazz Bass, Set of 2

Authentic specs, great price! Vintage specifications make these Golden Age pickups a great way to take your Jazz Bass® back to its roots.

They're a solid choice for building a custom 4-string bass with distinctive classic midrange.

The set of two pickups enables a versatile tone pallette, with two Alnico 5 polepieces per string providing the signature enhanced clarity. Authentic sound at a great price!

Set of two pickups with black cover, compressible foam pad for height adjustment, mounting screws, and push-back cloth-insulated lead wires are included with each pickup.

Bridge Pickup:
Dimensions (minus mounting tabs): 3-11/16" x 11/16" x 3/4" tall (93.66mm x 17.46mm x 19.05mm). Mounting screw spacing 1-9/16" x 15/16" (39.69mm x 23.81mm).
Polepieces: Alnico 5, with 2-5/16" (58.74mm) string spread.
Coil wire: AWG42, wound to 8.5K ohms and wax potted for feedback suppression.
Flatwork: Bottom thickness .094" (2.39mm), top .062" (1.57mm).

Neck Pickup:
Dimensions: 3-9/16" x 11/16" x 3/4" tall (90.49mm x 17.46mm x 19.05mm). Mounting screw spacing 1-1/2" x 15/16" (39.10mm x 23.81mm).
Polepieces: Alnico 5, with 2-3/16" (55.56mm) string spread.
Coil wire: AWG42, wound to 8.0K ohms and wax potted for feedback suppression.
Flatwork: Bottom thickness .094" (2.39mm), top .062" (1.57mm).

The reverse-wound, reverse-polarity coils are hum-cancelling when both pickups are at full volume (bridge pickup north polarity; neck pickup south polarity).

Note: Jazz Bass pickup dimensions have varied slightly over the years. Please measure your pickup cavities before replacing older pickups.

Wonderful Tone

I bought these to replace the very cheap stock pups in my '91 MIM Jazz bass. Because of the odd setup on the stock bass (two neck pickups, same polarity, and even they are slightly smaller than the standard neck pups) I had to do a bit of routing to slightly widen the bridge cavity. But other than that, these dropped right in. The sound is really quite nice. Very warm and clear. A huge step up from the stock MIM pickups.
