    So, last week I bought a new Fender Jazz Deluxe V. I love the look and feel of the bass, but felt the pickups and preamp didn't meet my expectations or tonal goals. Here I am 6 days later waiting on USPS to drop off a set of Seymour Duncan SJ5 67/70's and an Audere Pro-JZ6D Preamp. I'm pretty excited to get them in and feel it'll provide me with what I'm lacking.

    My question: How much do I sell the Fender N3 pickups and Fender Preamp (likely the whole jack plate assembly) for?? I see the pickups go for like $160. I don't see any price on the preamps. Anyone have any ideas? I was going to post them here in the classifieds as I researched and found many people like the N3's.

    Fender preamps are not very popular. You might get lucky and someone wants to replace theirs that went bad ($35-$50).
    The pickups might bring $75-$100. Can't say I have seen much demand for either

    I can understand why the preamps aren't popular. I read "18 volt preamp..." And expected a decent preamp. Meh. My stingray preamp slays it.
    LoveThatBass and Geri O like this.
