    NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

    One set of Nordstrand NJ4SE; This is Careys modern take on the jazz pickup. It is a great sounding pickup, is humcancelling, has a high output, and in my opinion is the best jazz pu ever. I have three sets and only 2 jazz basses to put them in, so one set's for sale!!!

    GONE!!!

    What's wrong with international sales? :bawl:

    I'd buy them if you didn't mind shipping to the UK.

  4. Are these pickups brand new in box? I've been looking at dropping a set of these in my MIA Jazz Dlx.

    Thanks Bryan

    They were installed for a few months, but have little to no wear.... in great condition.

    not familiar with the name, I'm guessing this is for a 4 string?

    I'm interested in these, but I do have a question. Right now I have a bass with EMG-HZ pickups in them, could I replace the EMGs with these pickups? I know there would be a space because the HZs are soapbar pickups but I'm not worried about that. I looked at the specs page on Carey's pickup site, but it is listed as "coming soon" along with the wiring page.

    I'm not clear on active pickup vs. passive pickup, but I know my EMG-HZs are passive pickups connected to an active (18V) preamp. Are the pickups you're selling passive or active?

    Thanks for any information you could provide. I'm definitely interested in these pickups.

    The Nordies are a passive pickup with a side by side humbucking design. No hum, great jazz bass sound. They fit the standard 4 string jazz bass route. You should have no issues attaching them to your 18v pre.

    The standard jazz route is 3-5/8" wide for the neck route; 3-3/4" wide for the bridge route.

    Hmmm, it seems my pickups are only 3-3/8" wide. I'll have to think about whether I want to route my bass as I haven't done anything like that before. These pickups would actually be my first ever bass mod.

    I'll have to lull this over. Let me get back to you in a day. Obviously if someone else wants them before I get back to you then it's my loss. I just really need to mull over routing the bass since I was abysmal in carpentry class back in tech. school. :)

    If I didn't have to route my bass I'd be all over these. Sorry man, I just can't bring myself to do it. :(

    I don't blame you.... I've done it before; and it is an ominous task the first time around...
