    Up for sale is basically a brand new set of Nordstrand NPJ4 Blade pickups. I bought these for a new bass purchase, installed, and then bought some other stuff that necessitates selling this bass. As such, I had the Nordies pulled and the originals put back in the bass. They literally have probably 30 minutes of playing time on them at home, so no scratches, dings, wear, etc. When ordering this set, you can choose from 2 J's, the Warm and Wooly and Clean and Clear. This set is the Warm and Wooly (which gives a bit more warmth and grunt to it, which I like for matching up with the P). That being said, this set has fantastic clarity as well.

    Details from Nordstrand website:

    This set of pickups is everything the title tells you it is: fat, slap-tastic fury from the P Blade, and an aggressive yet tamable tone from the Big J Blade. In the case of the Big J Blade, players may choose either a “warm and wooly” or “clean and clear” wind. In terms of what our builders can control upon the conception of their BJB, it is this choice in wind which serves as the player’s first and foremost front in customizing their BJB tone. The P Blade, however, is not quite so malleable. Its coalitions of magnetism and hardware belting through low and mid frequencies breeds the facilitation of doom for the sound spectrum, so we at Nordstrand suggest that if you’re looking for a raw, untamed, and aggressive sound accompanied by a disinhibiting yet friendly mediator, then the NPJ Blade set is right for you.
