High-powered pickups (SJB-3) with quarter-inch diameter Alnico 5 rod magnets to deliver all the attitude and punch you could ever want from a Jazz Bass.
The Quarter Pound Jazz Bass pickups have it all: hot output, great attack and massive attitude. The 1/4” diameter poles and hot coil winding delivers a full, even response with great sustain and sonic complexity for a powerful tone suited to any genre. You get the higher output of an overwound coil, with the articulation and detailed high end of a vintage pickup.
The neck position model is wound RWRP (reverse wound/reverse polarity) for hum-cancellation when used together with the bridge pickup.These pickups are drop-in replacements for any American Standard Jazz Bass (Mexican Standard Jazz Basses use two neck-sized pickups).
Hand-built in Santa Barbara, CA, the Quarter Pound for Jazz Bass pickups use Alnico 5 rod magnets and Forbon flatwork and are wax potted for squeal free operation. Each comes with a black cover, and are available in 4 and 5-string configurations.
