    Hey guys,

    In the market for a set of Nordstrand Dual Coils for 5 string ( Series ). Ideally I wanted to buy them used but they seem to be a needle in the haystack. Difficult to find on used market.

    Here is link to product.

    I have never purchased pickups new before always used but it looks like I will have to buy a new set.

    I am not sure where people get the best deals on new pickups? Everywhere I have looked the price of this set is identical at $315.

    Anyone know where I can purchase for less or if price being equal - a great place to shop? ( I like to support the "good guys").

    Thanks. One of the places I checked out. Still $315.

    Good customer service?

    BBG has been MOST helpful with my idiot questions and haven't steered me wrong yet.

    I'm waiting on my Nord NP5F Precision pups and Bartolini TC3 preamp. Based on my previous experience with recommendations from BBG, I'm really excited to hear this combination in my new AM STD Precision V.

    I believe Nordstrand has set pricing, so unless you buy used you probably won't find a lower price.

    And yes, BBG has wonderful customer service.

    You could call Chris at Bass San Diego. The dealers may be constrained on the price, though.
