    This is a set of DiMarzio Area J 5 string pickups. They are the humcancelling upgrade pickups to have if you like the Fender sound, but hate the hum and want a beefy output.
    These are in great shape, very minor signs of use, a surface scratch here and there, but no string gouges and fully functional with plenty of wire lead left.

    Here's a few things to note when considering these pickups in general:
    - They are NOT Fender replacement size. If you have a typical Fender 5 string, these pickups do not fit in. That's a shame, I wish DiMarzio would make such a thing, but to no avail as of yet.
    - The poles are spaced for a 19mm bridge, which is also not a Fender thing.
    - Both pickups are the same size (3.73" width)
    - There will be screws included, I think I have any color you'd want.

    Ideally, this is a set of pickups made to build a bass around, which was my intent, but I never got around to using these.
    BUT... if you have a Squier Deluxe Active J 5 or one of the older P5 Squiers with the J pickups in it, these are the perfect upgrade.
    Or if you have a Sadowsky that is too modern and scoopy sounding and want the Fender vibe, these would also be a direct drop-in for that.
    (Kind of a weird gap there, right?!? Either Squier or Sadowsky!)

    I'm sure there are plenty of other basses that would work, we can certainly chat about that and I'd be happy to help, so feel free to PM with questions.
    New, they go for $140/set. These work and sound the same for a lot less.

    $75 obo shipped to the US, Paypal.
    Int'l, PM for shipped price.
    More interested in cash money, but could entertain trade ideas, feel free to PM about that.
