Help to identify this pickup

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by FeuerFrei, Apr 23, 2009.


  1. This is one of the pickups that came on the Copley, can anyone identify what kind it is, or at least ones with the same form factor? I'm wanting to look at alternatives. Copley said they would send me the full electronics kit, but couldn't break out a single pickup.

    This is a 5 string bass.

    Thanks again.

    What are the dimensions? It looks like the same form factor Fender is using in some of their basses like the American Precision Deluxe or the Roscoe Beck. What they are using is essentially two jazz pickups smashed together.
     
  8. Alright, the dimensions
    L : 4.5"
    W: 1.5"
    D: 7/8"
     
  9. Well, if no one knows what these are, how difficult is it to just change pickups and find ones that will fill the hole?

    Given those dimensions, it looks like the closest thing is going to be the EMG-45 shape. You can get EMGs if you don't mind active(although the 45s are listed as 6-string pickups):

    Bartolini makes pickups in that shape for a passive:

    The Bartolini would probably be a good bet. I don't think you are going to find anything in that size with the jazz style shoulders. I hope this helps.

    EDIT:
    I just noticed that EMG has a passive version of the 45 as well:
