    Cleaning out the closet before we move. For sale are the following pickups. All have been previously installed but are in excellent condition and have plenty of wire on them.

    EMG PAX:

    I think this is EMG's most natural sounding P pickup. Comes in original box with pots, wiring harness, and instructions. Easy connector installation (no soldering). Asking $80 shipped.

    [DEL]Bartolini 8S:[/DEL] SOLD

    This is a very deep, dark, fat sounding P pickup. Comes pre-wired with pots to drop right into your precision bass. Asking $70 shipped.

    Dimarzio Area J 5 Set:

    I had these in a bass that I recently sold. They sound very close to vintage single coils but are hum canceling. Probably my favorite "split-coil" jazz pickups. Note that these don't drop into the routes on Fender 5 strings, but I hear you can fit them under the Fender covers if you want to install them in a Fender. Asking $80 shipped.

    The tone control in the Bartolini setup has a .1 uF cap.

    Two more simple questions - what brand are the pots, and what are the taper/values?

    Thanks again.
