This is a vintage single coil J style pickup made with 60's era correct Heavy Formar wire and Alnico V magnets. In winding these pickups we use a simulated hand wound pattern that lowers the resonant peak of the pickup resulting in a pleasing yet present high end. These pickups have a very even and full sound with that snap and grind associated with the classic basses of that time. Includes black covers (exposed pole pieces).
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 original's are known for.
Also available for 7.25" fingerboard radius
These are intended for basses with 7.25" fingerboard radius and have raised A & D poles to provide better sensing and balance.
Please Note:Nordstrand supplies chrome screws with their pickups. If you require black or gold screws, we carry them on our pickup screws page.
