    I have an old pair of J pups that have hex head adjustable pole pieces. They have creme colored covers. Very punchy almost like a P pup. Anyone have an idea what these are. Could they be DiMarzios?

    Yep, instant steroids for any J-bass.

    Yo ... Nes ... :meh:

    They could be - but needn't ...

    A lot of companies copied DiMarzio Pickups in the 80s.
    Germans (Schaller) as well as Asian manufacturers (Ibanez, Tokai, Fernandes, Kawai +++) ...

    Which are the wire colours?
    Green/White + Black/Red?

    Again, most of these copies were OEM from the factory in less expensive basses (offshore) and not marketed as after market replacements.
