P-Bass Pickup Height Foam

Just the right thickness plus density. Can be used with the pickup springs.

Great for P and J pickups - good, dense foam

I originally posted a 4-star review in which I stated that the foam was good, but had a little too much "memory", i.e. it didn't want to uncompress once compressed. I had StewMac remove that review so that I could post this amendment:

I later determined that the pickup in question (a J pickup) was binding and not sliding smoothly on the 4 screws that hold it against the foam. That's a lot of screws, and the chances of them being all perfectly parallel with each other may not be too good, depending on whether or not a drill press was used to create the pilot holes. What I did to remedy the situation was remove all the screws, then reinstall them, being careful to bring the pickup DOWN to the height I wanted, but no further.

BTW, I found it helpful to cut the J-style piece of foam in half across its shortest dimension, so that I could then center the two pieces between each pair of screws. I was worried about the pickup bowing up in the middle, between the D and A strings.

Perfect! Was trying to track this foam down and the StewMac foam worked great! I had an old 80's humbucker that the foam had disintegrated from. I cut the foam to size and the self adhesive on the back of the foam worked great. I bought some extra to have on hand.

The foam under the pickups of my '76 P-bass were dried out and crumbling. I used some napkins to hoist the pick ups but swapped out my quick fix for this height foam. It worked great and did the job I expected it to do.

I'm going to put P-90s in a guitar. This pickup height foam will save me the trouble of rounding up some foam and cutting it. They also are inexpensive.

A necessity if you replace many pickups

Removed several pickups from different instruments- most of the existing foam cushion was hardened or non-existent. This is perfect for custom installations as well.
