    So I've been looking at buying new pups for my cheap jazz. The guy in my local store suggested these. I've read the other posts but most of them have just been complaining about price. The store has them on sale for 120 euro (usually about 220), which I think is a fair price for good pickups in Ireland. I just want to know does anyone have any experience with these, and how did you find the sound. https://bareknucklepickups.co.uk/main/pickups.php?cat=bass&sub=vintage&pickup=60_hf&series=j_bass

    They have a great reputation among guitarists. At that price, I would try them out. Give us a review!

    So I decided to buy the pickups and will give a description of the sound after I install them tomorrow, as it's clear they are rare enough around here.

    Bare Knuckles are still limited here because of their price. They are a good sounding pickups, just not any better than Fralins, Aeros, Nordys, or Delanos. Something to look at also might be Lollars or Reed James. Both are awesome vintage repros.
