I've recently purchased this pickup form Ebay USA (I'm in London UK). It was stated as a genuine early 70's Jazz bass pickup.
Well I received it a few days ago and it looks nothing as I expected. I already have a pair of 70s pups in my Jazz and they look different, more like most photos of 70s pickups that I've seen. But this one doesn't: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/attach...1&d=1388849485 http://www.talkbass.com/forum/attach...1&d=1388849485
As you can see there's a tape covering the coil, also on the second photo if you look closely you can see the colour of the wire that doesn't look typical for that Fender era (from what I know).
Any advice will be appreciated as I need to decide what to do... I've already informed the seller about my concern however I don't want to miss the legal 14 days return policy time...
