  1. Edit: Sold! EMG J-Set black 4-string active bass pickups (old style, require soldering). Condition is "Used". But still beautiful in a 'rewards of time' type of manner. This is a used set of EMG J-Set pickups from around the 1990s. They have been installed in my Jazz Bass for the past decade and, unsurprisingly, some dust and/or wear is evident as seen in photos. The set includes wiring, battery connector, 2 volume pots, a tone pot and an output jack (EMG type). The accompanying stock loom is fully wired and, to quote a phrase that our American cousins like to brandish, "ready to go". Mind you, with hindsight, that's also a title of a Republica song. In any case, the phrase is apt for these fine pickups. There are some people who reckon that the older EMGs have 'more mojo' and 'sound better'. In my humble opinion, EMGs are very consistent and these pickups sounded great in situ regardless of their age and/or vintage advantage. I'd happily have kept these pickups my Jazz Bass of choice but, in these very weird times, I had to sell this instrument quite recently and returned it to stock. As a result, this fine set is now superfluous to demands. They're great pickups and the fact that Robert Trujillo has just 'silvered them up' to create his signature set speaks volumes. From Motown to Metal, you'll be well covered with this set. The dust is included with the sale but, for reasons of postage ease, the battery is not. Delivery is Royal Mail Signed For 1st Class or Royal Mail Signed For 2nd Class.
  2. I have a set of vintage EMG J pickups (pre-solderless pots/jack) that I'd like to trade for a Dimarzio Model J Set (or its Schaller equivalent) or Ultra Js. I LOVE these EMGs. And they're great and dynamic. But I just fancy seeing how my bass sounds passive and happen to really like Dimarzio Model J and Ultra J pickups. I'll happily trade my whole EMG J Set (including all the pots and jack) with your Dimarzio equivalent. Go on. Reply. You know you want to.
  3. PS They're active pickups. And, should you wish to pair it with an EMG Jazz Bass pickup - the 'Original J' will be a fine companion for what you've got.
  4. They are EMG Original P pickups. It's only in the last decade or so that they've increased their model options. These are largely colour coded (Gold=Alnico/Silver=Ceramic) now. Original Recipe EMG pickups are lovely all the same.
  5. She's been chasing the Jamerson sound for years!
  6. Strewblack, I like the way you think. It's very clear that we share DNA. And Flake is absolutely gorgeous.
  7. Hello BT Profile Family, Here is mine. My dog approves.
  8. SOLD Nordstrand Power Blade Precision Bass Pickup The unfeasibly nice Andy Irvine referred to these pickups as being filled with fosters and vinegar. And he's right. They're in-your-face yet deliver a strong fundamental. If you want a prominent sound without a tinny clank-infused high-end - these will do nicely. I sadly do not have the mounting screws for this set but that's reflected in the price. Happy to send these to the happy buyer for the extra cost of P&P.
  9. Dimarzio Ultra Jazz Bridge Pickup DP149 Black To put it simply, this is a great Jazz Bass Pickup. It's features side-by-side magnets which make it humbucking yet its articulation levels deliver a Jaco-like burp and quack as a good Jazz Bass Pickup should. Basically, you get a dynamic single-coil attack without all the hum and mucky-muck. Ideal for a PJ bass! Sadowsky have been using variations on the Ultra Jazz pickups for years and it'll get you into Marcus territory with ease. I still have a Dimarzio Ultra Jazz set on another bass and had these set aside for a future PJ project that never got off the ground. A Jazz Bass Pickup on Steroids is what this be. And with a lot more midrange than our cousins at TalkBass hint at. I'll happily send these to the lucky buyer for the cost of P&P.
  10. SOLD EMG Geezer Butler Precision Pickup If you're reading this advert, you already know ALL about this pickup. You might even be aware of Jimmy on Talk Bass and his enthusiastic praise of this fine passive unit. DO believe the hype. It's a great pickup. I had this installed on a Reverse Double P Bass that I recently sold. I had originally hoped to use this fine piece of machinery in a new project. Sadly, this hasn't materialised. This is JUST for the sale of the pickup. No pots/knobs/bits/bobs. The pickup was hard-wired into its previous installation (which is when the photo below was taken) but, if you fancy making use a EMG's solderless pots, you can easily accommodate that with the purchase of one of their quick connection leads. As it happens, this is ready to be installed into any 'normal pot' and I can't recommend a 500k option highly enough. You'll just need the pickup screws, foam and you'll be playing Paranoid a la Mr Butler in no time. I'll happily post this for the extra cost of P&P.
  11. Scratchplate for Jazz Bass w/Reverse Precision Pickup Route (Mark Hoppus Signature) made by WD Custom Pickguards USA I had intended to transform a Jazz Bass of mine into a Mark Hoppus-adjacent instrument and ordered this. In effect, it's a Jazz Bass scratchplate designed to accommodate a reverse P-Pickup. It'll fit any V2 Fender Mark Hoppus Bass Perfectly but could also be used to modify an existing Jazz Bass. It's got a reflective Gold finish and has never been installed. A bit like Nigel Tufnel's Bass VI guitar, this has never been played. Go on. You want it. £25.00 is a small fraction of what it cost to order this. Get it. Now. Please.
  12. SOLD Good enough for 'arry. Good enough for you. This is a Seymour Duncan Steve Harris Signature Pickup. The SPB-4. Despite its Iron Maiden-pedigree, this is a surprisingly versatile pickup. With it's prominent midrange attack, it holds its own against the EMG Geezer Butler P but with a more prominent low-end. For those people who really care about DC values, this comes it at around the 13 mark BUT it doesn't sound hot. It's vintage-hot. Not as scooped as a Quarter Pounder but no slouch in the oomph stakes. And fit for an ancient mariner. I had this installed in a Precision Bass that recently got sold and I had hoped to add this bad boy to a new project. But, that's not going to happen anytime soon. And, yes, I DID use the phrase 'bad boy'. Not very Maiden of me. Apologies. The pickup resides in East London and I'll happily post it for the cost of postage and the elusive packing.
  13. He demonstrates the spirit of this pedal beautifully (alongside all his many other fine Tech 21 demos).
