This single coil pickup for bass was only manufactured from 1951 to 1957, and I make a replica based on those same specs. Vintage-spec 42 gauge plain-enamel wire, .195″ diameter Alnico V magnets, riased A and D string poles, cotton string wrap, light beeswax potting, and cloth-covered lead wires. Bright, clear tone.
This pickup is the same size as the ’51 P-Bass pickup but is hum-canceling. Tone is comparable to regular split-coil P-Bass pickups. 10K output.
Aggressive, thick, funky, fat, low noise… my P-Bass pickup is made just like the original and the best; 10,000 winds per coil of scatterwound single-build, plain-enamel wire, Alnico V magnets, and cloth covered leads. It’s hard to improve on perfection.
’70s Jazz Bass tone inspired by the originals. Excellent clarity and even tonal response.
