    Both sets of pickups are in excellent shape.

    Sadowsky Pickups sold!


    The Sadowsky pickups came out of my Standard JJ when I switched to the single coils. They are $100 shipped

    The Nordstrand Dual Coils are unique. They are a 4 conductor set that can be wired in series or parallel and can be split. I bought them for a project bass that I no longer have. $200 shipped

    Are the Nordstrands 19mm spacing? I thought the pickups shipped as 'series' pickups or 'parallel' pickups, but not both. I could be mistaken though...

    Yes, they are 19mm spacing. And yes, they are normally ordered as series or parallel. These have 4 leads so you can set them up either way. Directions for wiring them in series or parallel are here:

    Ahh, very cool. The Nordstrand site says they put different winds of coil around the pickups/magnets depending on whether they are series (less winds) or parallel (more winds) due to the tonal differences in wiring them each way. Do you happen to know if these pickups have the traditional series or traditional parallel wound-counts, or are they something different to accommodate the varied ways one can install the pickups?

    To be honest...I am not sure which way they are wound.
