FD3 4 Bridge

These pickups are a result of a conversation Carey had with Sheldon Dingwall shortly after the 2013 NAMM show. The idea was to offer the great unique pickups that Dingwall has been making in house for use on their stellar fan fret basses to the general public.

Dingwall was flirting with selling them direct at one point, but Sheldon decided he was better off focusing on the production and marketing of his basses than to really get involved in selling pickups.

This is where Nordstrand comes in.

That conversation mentioned above led to the establishment of a working relationship whereby Nordstrand Pickups makes the FD3 pickup to Sheldon’s exacting specifications and offers them to the boutique pickup market at a reasonable price.

If you’ve been looking for that elusive Dingwall tone in your favorite conventional bass now you can have it.

Intended for parallel fret basses, designed for 18mm to 19mm bridge spacing. Buy a set today!
