    Brand new Lace Alumitone Aluma P Bass Pickup. I bought this brand new about 4 years ago and NEVER got around to using it.

    One excellent feature of this pickup is that it saves about a 1/4 lbs of weight after replacing a stock P pickup.

    I'm sure youtube has some sound examples if one is curious about the Lace's sonics.

    Comes with a mini Cd to explain installation.

    New, costs $119.99 Selling for $90 shipped USA 48 PayPal.

    Here' Lace's pitch.....................

    A Modern Masterpiece in Bass Pickups

    Aluma P™ system is one of the new "current driven" designs incorporating patented and patent pending technology from Lace®. Using two separate pickups for the high and low strings without the need for a "bucking" traditional setup, the Aluma P™ generates high output clarity with huge bottom. This tone and output were only available with a pre amp before. The Aluma P™ not only eliminates the need for a pre amp, but also has zero noise.

    "These new Aluma P™ bass pickups are a system, in that they will not only work with a traditional 4 string bass, but by rearranging them they can work for 5 and 6 string bass applications as well" states Jeff Lace, Vice President and designer of the Aluma P™ Bass Pickup.

    Formally introduced for Earth Day, the revolutionary Aluma P™ and Alumitone® family of pickups use 95% less copper wire then standard pickup designs. By reducing the need for copper it saves valuable resources, reduces open pit mining and the very high energy need for converting copper ore to fine wire.

    The all passive Aluma P™ system technology also eliminates the need for a battery powered pre amp, another source of pollution for the Earth. Batteries are laden with highly toxic chemicals and most often find themselves in landfills.

    The main exoskeleton of the Alumitone family is recyclable aluminum offering light weight.. This Aluminum primary offers a faster attack and higher fidelity for tone then copper. The Aluma P™ system bass pickup weighs only 2.56 ounces. The light weight, in turn means less weight and cost in fuel to transport, not to mention reducing the weight of your bass.

    Aluma P Bass Pickups are available: Chrome, Black Anodized & Silver Anodized

    Lace Aluma P™
    Position: P-Bass

    Still available and I might trade for a Fender Custom Shop '59 P Bass pickup as used in the Mike Dirnt Bass and if I heard correctly, as used in the American Standard P Bass as of either 2012 or 2013. (has the redish brown insulation on the copper windings & cloth black and white push back leads) Must have the grounding plate and 4 mounting screws too.
