    This is my first attempt a selling on TB, so hopefully I get this right.

    I acquired this pickup/preamp in a parts bass that I picked up locally. I don't have a project for it (more of a Jazz guy) so I thought I would move it down the road.

    I had a bass tech look everything over and he assured me that it is in working order, he just had to solder in a new 9 volt battery clip (which had been snipped for some reason). He also mentioned that one pot might have a bit of issue (a little stiff in one spot while turning) but said any tech should be able to replace it if it's even needed. The pickup plugs into the preamp without soldering.

    If I am reading the Alembic price list on their website correctly this setup goes for $850. I also read the following on the website, PLEASE READ "Please note that some installations, Fender P basses in particular, require additional routing to make room for the 9V battery. You may not want to add Alembic Activators to valuable vintage instruments if routing is required for the installation.

    I am asking $225 OBO, shipped to Canada or the lower 48 States. I am not looking for any trades, Paypal is fine.
