    I recently tried a Fender Mike Dirnt Precision at my local GC. It was kind of heavy and I didn't really care for the lack of contour on the back of the body. However, I did like the "meaty" neck and the sound of the Custom Shop '59 pickup. Is it possible to by this pickup "ala cart" from Fender? They do sell a Custom Shop set of Jazz pickups. Inquiring minds wanna know. Thanks!

    They sell a 62' reissue pickup, but I don't believe they sell the 59' version.

    If you can't get a hold of that, you may want to check out a Nordstrand NP4.

    Just a suggestion :hyper:

    Or the Seymour Duncan Antiquity series. Series I is their '50s version, Series II is the '60s.
     
  5. Talk about resurrecting a dead thread!

    I'm looking at getting the Squire Dirnt and was thinking about trying to find the '59 pickup. Anything new happen in the last 6 years?
