SJ5S Five String Configuration

This pickup captures the tone, feel and articulation of a great '62 Jazz Bass. We adjusted the coil geometry and winding configuration to compensate for the different nature of extended range instruments. It's now possible to capture the subtle characteristics of traditional "J-tone" all the way down to the low "B." Includes logo cover.

The 70/74 fits many popular 5-string basses.

Neck Pickup is 70mm as measured over the pickup, and bridge pickup is 74mm as measured over the pickup.

Please Note: Not a direct retrofit for Fender ® V Jazz Basses

SJ5-3 Quarter Pounder for Five String Configuration

High Output true single-coil. Recommended for blues, classic rock, garage, heavy rock and nu-metal.

Delivers amazing output and super strong attack. The quarter-inch alnico pole piece magnets together with over-wound coil provide full response with great control. Includes logo cover.

This pickup is a direct retrofit for Fender™ Jazz V and many other popular 5 string basses. Will accommodate string spacings up to 3.10" (78.7mm) for bridge pickup and 3.00" (76.2mm) for neck pickup.


    Neck Pickup

  • Length = 3.973"(101mm) Width = 0.73"(18.54mm)
  • Bridge Pickup

  • Length = 4.100"(104.1mm) Width = 0.73"(18.54mm)

A truly impressive pickup
By Ed Tapper
I have used SD Jazz pickups before, albeit in a passive bass (namely the 67-70mm pickups). I have to admit that I was skeptical of the Quarter Pounder, mostly due to their advertized high output and overwound coils; worried that they'd be louder than the MM-style pickup that was also in the bass. I was pleasantly surprised that the output is the same and the pickup has a great aggressive tone. Lots of growl in the low end with clean highs. I would recommend this pickup to anyone.
