Jazzbass V replacement pickups ?

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by AllodoX, Aug 13, 2002.


  1. j0 :)

    Not that i plan to replace them anytime soon, but just out of curriosity.. what are good replacement pickups for a MIM deluxe jazzbass V ? All the " big " brands ( bartolini, seymour duncan, etc ) claim that their pickups are not suitable for the Fender Jazzbass V without modification.. and since i don't plan to modify the bodywork of my J..

    what other options, other than custom made pickups are there ? :)

  3. DiMarzio UltraJazz-5, a matched set.

    www.dimarzio.com :

    All positions. The neck model alone is the DP547. The bridge model is the DP548, and the pair is model DP549. Important Note: The cover dimensions of the Ultra Jazz 5 are not the same as 5-string Fender Jazz Bass®. The Ultra Jazz 5 can therefore NOT be installed as direct replacements on these basses without modification.

  5. Yes, you are absolutely correct. I should have read your first note closer... no modifications.

    That's the problem with 5-strings... very limited amount of aftermarket toys.
