Hah...not yet. One has been on there 5 months and the other 3 months....but they are hard to find.
Yeah, $400 is a steep asking price. $2XX is a fair and solid selling price. It's a unique pickup and the new ones are not like the old ones tonally.
That's what I found out bigtone23. It's tough to find an old one. Just got lucky with the eBay one. I thought for sure it would sell for more.
I found this body sticking out of a trash bin in my neighborhood last year. close to doing something with it
Surely it must be possible to get a custom pickup builder to reproduce one? At the very least the coils, if not the cover?
Nice find! Lots of pickup options with those routs.
I would assume the easy part would be the coils and cover. The CuNiFe magnet is the secret sauce with the original Wide Range Humbucker. I'm not a tone snob, but a proper sized, drop-in 4-wire humbucker wound to a similar strength/resistance/inductance/resonant peak and chrome cover with offset poles would be just fine.
I had a Squier VM version, but the pickup had already been replaced by a Model One, so I've never experienced the original tone as the Fender version is uncommon in the UK, and I never bothered to try an unmodified vintage modified (now there's a phrase).
You can find original used Gibson EBO-EB3 "mudbuckers" on Ebay.
Hello! I wanted to bump this up in case their is new information. I am currently looking for a wide range Neck humbucker pickup for a 70s style tele bass I’m building. I can only find 2 on eBay but they are both over 400. I’m not worried about looks as much as sound, but I’d prefer not to go over $250-300 or less if possible. Any suggestions appreciated!
Check with Curtis Novak.
I had a Squier TB with the original pickup replaced with a Model One. The spacing is narrower, but the sound was fine. But if I was doing it from scratch I'd aim for the correct spacing, and I would have preferred the wide range pickup.
I've seen clones for well under $200.
Unfortunately, no idea as it's not something I was that interested in after I sold that bass.
What pickup pairs well with the WRHB? i own a squier telecaster bass special that has a WRHB at the neck and a Jazz Duncan Designed at the bridge. I want to try a different configuration on my next bass project and i just bought two WRHBs. Any suggestions?
Nice! Where’d you get those two at and how much were they? Finishing the body up on mine now
From a seller on Reverb, he was selling a disassembled Fender Modern Player Telecaster Bass. That model has 2 WRHBs. He agreed to sell me the pickups separately $90 a piece.
Sentell Pickups bass guitar pickups
$140, but you'd need a cover.
did you finish this project? I'm considering a tele bass build with two WRHBs. though not sure where to source a body
You could contact Rosser Guitars, he has a eBay store and Facebook page. The guy
makes great quality guitar and bass bodies with custom pickup routing. Don't know if he routes WRHBs, but its worth a try. He recently did this ash body for me.
