Looks cool to me. I hate tetris-block P pups, but if I had to have one, that would be a contender. Love my Big Singles & Big Splits!

Just installed a set. Review pending....
any updates on these pickups?
I can tell you that the NP4 angled poles are wound with the same wire and magnet load as the NP4. The main difference is the wider aperture because of the angled poles which theoretically adds more harmonics. I cannot tell much of a difference personally, but it's there. The most audible difference in the NP4 family is the magnet size IMHO. The NP4v has a smaller magnet load and has a more motown, Jamerson sound.
Anyone try a NP4a with a Big Split in a PJ type configuration ? I'm thinking this might be interesting, especially with the NP4a in a reverse P config ...
I'll try to get my son to do some sound clips. Put this one together today.
wow, six knobs and two mini-toggles, all for one pickup!
what's going on under the hood there?
Forgot to mention - Audere 4 band Pro-Z preamp. So, there are 4 active tone controls and the other stack is volume/passive tone. One switch is for Z mode switching and the other is active/passive.
This is my first P bass. Having the extra tone controls really adds versatility.
OOT, is this an original NP4A and big singles pickup? im not really sure cuz its pickup covers (especially the P), bobbins and Nordstrand logo on it little bit odd for me
and one last question, is there any branded bass using this pickup configuration?
They look odd to me also. Send an email with the photos to Nordstrand. They'll be able to answer that question.
Those are CND (Carey Nordstrand Designed) pickups from an Ibanez 650 or 750. They're OEM winds of Nordstrand pickups. I recognize those red bobbins and black glue from my very own Ibanez 655. You want to avoid that. They're not standard sized and will only fit another Ibanez 650 or 750, so I don't know why anyone is selling them.
THAT SAID, they sound amazing. The neck pickup, in particular, is spectacular. It makes flatwounds sound so sweet, it will bring tears to your eyes.
