4 String Split Coil Vintage P Bass Pickup
on qualifying orders



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

Also available with Alnico III magnets

Alnico III magnets differ from Alnico V in that they are warmer with a softer character. Think of them like a 60’s J style sound taken even further down the warm and fat path. Alnico V by contrast is brighter, cleaner and punchier, and will have a more wiry, stringy character. As another example, we’d recommend Alnico III for fretless or a fat 60’s Jaco type thing and Alnico V is great for a modern slap type thing or an R & B sound.

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

It has the great drive the P Bass is noted for, but no boominess or high and low spots. Slightly accentuated in low mids with hollow grind.
