    I have a jazz bass with overly oxidizing pickups. However, the bass has two neck pickups of the same size (92mm i think). Is it possible to buy neck pickups seperately?

    Yes, I did the exact same thing recently with a cheapie J bass knockoff. Got two Dimarzio Ultra Jazz pickups, both neck sized. They are packaged and sold separately.

    Yes.
     
  4. Sounds like you might have an older Mexican made Fender jazz bass. If so, make double sure they are indeed neck pups, which should be 91mm. They might be bridge pickups, which are 95mm for Bartolinis, though Seymour Duncan quotes smaller specs...if you check out suppliers sites, you'll get the details..... I'd recommend the DiMarzios too.
