Based on the Original 1970’s Bartolini HI-A design, the J44J L/S is the b-axis series Jazz Bass® ( J Bass® ) replacement pickup set with a ‘long’ for the bridge and a ‘short’ for the neck. This set is gaining the interest of highly respected musicians and luthiers alike for its huge punchy tone, precise articulation, rich harmonics and incredible versatility.
They feature a new fully encapsulated Alnico V exposed pole piece design. The b-axis series bass pickups with passive designs. They are cast in epoxy to remove unwanted feedback and microphonics.
The lengths of the neck and bridge pickups in the original J-basses are not equal. The neck pickup is 3-5/8″ long which is slightly shorter than the bridge pickup which is 3-3/4″ long.
Please check the physical size of the pickups you want to replace to make sure the replacements fit properly.
