    Here is a set of stock Carvin Bromberg humbucking pickups - the RAD-HB & RAD-HN - straight off my new Bromberg fretless 5. Two electrical leads for straightforward, uncomplicated wiring; plus 14-inch top radius, to follow the radius of the Bromberg fretboard/fingerboard for uniform action across all strings.

    These have never been used. They are in MINT condition.

    Description:
    The RAD-H side-by-side humbucker features Alnico V magnets for great clarity along with deep, smooth bass response with excellent mid-range punch. Designed for 4, 5 and 6 string basses with an effective string spacing width up to 3.3". 4.25" long x 1.25" wide x .75" high. Direct replacement for Carvin Soapbar pickups as found on the Icon and other bass models. Neck position is 9.2k ohms. Bridge position is 11.4k ohms. Available in black only.

    These have never been used. They are in MINT condition.Carvin sells these for $85.00 each, or $170.00 for a set. My price: [DEL]$120.00[/DEL] (price drop) $100.00 + shipping. Will ship anywhere in the USA via USPS Priority Mail.

    How do these compare to the standard soapbars?

    They sound pretty similar. Both models yield a very modern, wide-range, hi-fi kind of tone. Smooth, yet very articulate - especially in the upper mids.

    If you like that kind of tone, you'll love these...

    Given the fact that doing so would make it just about impossible to ever sell the leftover pickup?

    No.

    They're soapbars - not J-style pickups. Same dimensions as the Bartolini P2, I believe.

    NEW PRICE DROP!

    NEW PRICE: $50 + shipping!

    OK, OK! Enough pussyfooting around! I'm tired of looking at these. I need to move 'em, and I need to move 'em fast!

    First $50 + shipping (via USPS Priority Mail) takes 'em. That'll be $56 total, payable via PayPal - for delivery anywhere in the CONUS.

    Who's ready to make a deal for these fine pickups - at such a super-fine price? :meh:
