Hello, I just picked up a set of J pickups (bridge and neck) with "Alnico V" magnets in them for $32 shipped brand new (he may have more of these, link here ---> PUPS ). I remember reading here that these magnets are used in a good bit of aftermarket pups and older, vintage U.S. spec J original pups and than a lot of people recommended them. I'm putting them in my cheap. low budget project bass (got a used, but literally like new maple quilted SX J bass off another TBer for $115 shipped). I also bought a nice heavy duty bridge (looks like a Badass II at less than half the price) and a killer pealoid pickguard for it. Anyway, these PUPs gotta sound better than the harsh POS ceramics that came with the SX I hope (ceramics also come in the MIM Fender's J''s I'm told vs Alnico's in MIA J's). I also read here on the forum that Mighty Mite (the ones that I got with the Alnico's) make replacement pups for Fender. Just thought I'd pass this deal along to other TBer's looking for a potentially cheap, but good PUP upgrade. Thoughts, opinions???
