Golden Age Pickups for Jazz Bass, Set of 2

About This Item

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.

Installed in a 30+ year old Series 10 Jazz Bass. Gave this old girl a new lease on life. Impressed with how nice they sound. Also replaced pots and wiring. First time buy on the Golden Age series of pickups.

Nice pickups for short money

Added these to my Mexican 60's jazz bass and really like the sound. Specs are comparable to other vintage pickups but these are more affordable with no shortcomings (IMHO). I have the P version in my Squier Precision as well...Highly recommended!

Great upgrade!

I dropped this into a friend's cheap Squier J-Bass along with CTS pots, an Orange Drop Cap, and a Switchcraft jack...They changed the world for this bass! They are great by themselves, but they're not magic...you need to upgrade electronics as well, if you're dumping them into a cheap import.

The only thing holding this bass back now is the garbage piece of extremely-heavy mystery-wood from which they built the body. No pickup on Earth can fix that. I'd recommend these to anyone looking to achieve a meaty, honky, vintage J-Bass sound.

I'm building a nice J-Bass for myself here soon for which I'll be purchasing another set of these puppies!

Great value for an upgrade

I bought a pair of these for a MIM 62 Jazz Reissue and it really perked it up. More output, better clarity. At this point I like them as well or better than the SD quarter pounders in my P bass special.

Bonus- they dropped right in, so didn't have to break out the dremmel!
