The Type 3 JB4 is a 4-String pickup set for Jazz Basses with a 'long' sized pickup in the bridge position and a 'short' in the neck position. These utilize Alnico V magnet's and are built by hand to provide the highest quality available for Jazz bass.
Tonally these are different than the Type 1, and Type 2's as they have a more warmer,darker pleasant distortion style sound. They also have the feeling of carrying the note longer, and a perfect choice for players that have a lighter touch.
Not recommend for players with an aggressive touch.
This pickup set can be distinguished from one another other than dimensions as the bridge pickup has pinkish wire, and the neck pickup has brown wire.
This pickup is intended for 18.80mm spacing measured over the neck pickup, and 19.80mm spacing measured over the bridge pickup.
Please check the physical size of the pickups you want to replace to make sure the replacements fit properly.
