    Does anyone here have a Xaviere Jazz Bass (from guitarfetish)? If so, can you please do me a HUGE favor and measure the bridge pickup covers and let me know the measurements, specifically the distance between the pickup mounting screws on the bridge pickup? I got one without any pickups, and I ordered some standard pickups, and the neck pickup drops in fine, however the "ears" on the bridge pickup are a little too narrow, and was wondering the size. Hopefully it is a standard pickup cover size and I can find new covers for them. I was surprised it didn't match the Fender specs because most everything else does

  2. It sounds like you have 2 neck size Jazz Bass Pickups, put them side by side and see if they are identical.
    You'll need a neck and a bridge pickup. To the naked eye they look the same but the bridge is wider and the tabs further apart. They must have shipped you the wrong thing.

    thanks for the reply, yes I am aware of the size difference, and neither cover fits in the bridge pickup routed area due to the "ears" on the mount to mount. I did some research and found out that the mount to mount spacing is 1.454" (36.9mm) and also found some pickup covers on reverb that matched those dimensions.
  4. Make sure that the magnets will line up with the magnet holes in the new covers.

    I am going without the holes for a sleeker look, and to avoid that issue - the holes are pointless anyway

    None of their parts: neck heels, neck routs in bodies, or pickup routing in bodies is Fender spec. My rule for them tends to be "if it fits, it's by accident"
