¿¿¿ 1980's Fender Jazz Bass MIJ ???

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by JazzMarius, Apr 9, 2009.

  1. hy all! i wanna buy a set of pickups from a '90 MIJ Jazz Bass 5 strings ( acording to seller )for my Squire Precision Special and this guy ( the seller ) says that it has 16 mm spacing ( acording to his measurements ) .

    is that correct? i mean, i never saw a bass that has 16 mm spacing. is he correct or just measured wrong?
  2. bump?¿
  3. come on guys. simple question for u gurus! help me on this one!
  4. is he measuring at the bridge or at the pickup?
  5. Is it 1980's or 1990's?

    I'm curious... you say you've never seen a bass with 16mm spacing. So, what spacing have you seen and what did you think it should be?
  7. well, the measurments of the pickups.not the bass.

    i own a 17,5 mm Bongo, a 19 mm Peavey and i had a 16,5 mm Kohler.

    i though fender jazzes had 19 mm .

    the pickups are from a 1980 MIJ jazz. that's what the sellers says.

    i believe that they are the same size, the two.
  8. anyone?
  9. Maybe he is measuring the width above the pickups not at the bridge?
  10. i believe u're right since the pickups are off the bass.

    for a 19 mm at bridge 16 mm at pickups should be ok, right?
