Split Coil Humcancelling Precision Bass Pickups for 4 String Basses

Please check the physical size of the pickups you want to replace to make sure the replacements fit properly.


  • This is a faithful reproduction of one of the most famous pickups in the world.
  • It will give a very big and full tone with the slightly hollow grind that the originals are known for.
  • Includes black covers (exposed pole pieces).


  • The NP4A is a unique P style pickup by any measure.
  • It takes the angled pole piece arrangement that Nordstrand is so well known for and applies it to one of the most traditional pickups ever and the result is familiar yet somehow unique.
  • This pickup has a broad and punchy character highlighted by a nice rich and focused midrange. It will fill the P role very well, but offers so much more in terms of versatility.
  • A simple passive tone knob used in conjunction with this pickup will reveal a wide range of very usable sounds with several sweet spots that are nothing short of inspiring.


  • This is a vintage correct version of a classic pickup.
  • It will give a slightly smoother tone than our standard NP4.

Please Note:Nordstrand supplies chrome screws with their pickups. If you require black or gold screws, we carry them on our pickup screws page.

nordstrand pick up for fender p deluxe

First time replacing pick ups in a bass. ...My pbass was very modern sounding, the Nordstrand melloed it out and made it sound deeper and thicker/richer.

Nordstrand NP4
By Daniel Le Bolloch from on 1/15/2014
This really is a great pickup. It absolutely nails the classic P-Bass tone. If you want something modern sounding maybe look elsewhere, but I was after that 60s P sound. I have it in a stndard P style bass with an alder body and maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, and it delivers in spades.
Highly recommended.
