    Fender Jazz bass pick up set. I feeling these are Mexican standard not 100% sure but I know they're not Squier. They had CTS pots attached to them, so that would indicate at least Made in Mexico quality.

    30 bucks shipped conus takes them!

    Will consider trades for Precision pick ups, vintage style BASS Bridges, Precision pickguards , etc.

    The bars on the bottom indicate they're from a Mexican standard.

    I thought that too at first, but I don't know that I've ever had pickups out of a Mexican standard, and do the Mexican standards have beveled edges on the polepieces ?

    Looks like they do have beveled polepieces on the later ones. I'm still not 100% of the origin, as I have not had any pick ups out of a Mexican standard that I am aware of, but I will assume them to be there and I'll adjust the price accordingly...thanks ! :)

    Just to lend a helping hand ... these would be a ceramic magnet set, used from '02 - current as MIM Standard Jazz pups, Fender part numbers 58294/5 ... another tell tale sign is the raised A & D pole pieces ... Fender switched to these at the time they began to offer MIM Standards with the conventional longer bridge/shorter neck pups (and yes the switch to CTS pots you mentioned)... prior to the mid '01 transition they were using the same length 36437 set imported from Cort in the MIM Standards ... ;)

    Edit to add: .. these are fairly hot pups, I installed a set into a bass build to compliment a very old set of Dean Markley flats, and they did a nice job!
