    DSCF0001.JPG DiMarzio Area J Jazz bass pickup set used and in very good condition. These are really great sounding pickups that have that vintage sound with more clarity and better lows. The magnets are Alnico 2 and don't have as much gain as Alnico 5 pickups but the tone is really good. The Area Series of pickups is all I use in my basses now. IMO they are really amazing. There is plenty of wire length to install them and they come with black mounting screws. $90 shipped Priority...PayPal and USPS Money Order only.

    Area J™ Pair
    DP249
    Been waiting for a bass pickup that sounds like a vintage J Bass® pickup and cancels hum? Your wait is over. Bass pickups are usually described with aggressive terms such as “amazing punch” and “thundering lows”, but that’s not the sound of vintage J Bass® pickups. They’re all about warmth, sustain, and a clean, singing tone. The Area J™ captures all of those qualities. It is not loud, but it has a very focused attack, so it has power where it counts – at the center of the tone. The lows are very clear and clean, and the highs are both smooth and open-sounding. We’ve reduced the magnet-pull, and included 4-conductor wiring to allow both series and parallel humbucking modes.

    These are amazing sounding pickups....I also have them in my Road Worn parts Jazz bass and they kill. $8o bucks shipped is as low as I'll go and these pups are a GREAT deal for that money. The lowest you will see them new is $130 bucks on Amazon...
