Anyone know which pickups Geddy Lee uses in his Jazz basses?

    I've heard Mojotone and Fender Custom Shop 60s. Anyone know for sure?

    I think that Geddy Lee has his pickups made by Mojotone master winder Tom Brantley. I have a Tom Brantley pickup in a guitar. You can't beat Brantley's pickups.

    I don't know about Fender Custom Shop, but you just can't go wrong installing Tom Brantley-made pickups.

    Tom Brantley for some but not all. He's no longer with mojotone, but you can find home easily online with the google "Tom Brantley pickup rewind."

    He can get you a pair wired to "Geddy Spec" easily enough.

    I don't know about the basses Geddy recently added from the custom shop. The stories I've heard don't involve swapping out pickups.
