original 62 precision pickup?

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by ampeg2, Jul 9, 2014.


  1. I purchased a used original "62"pickup without shield from a tb'r . I installed it,and not a lot going on. the poles are not beveled and protrude above the covers. Is this correct ?the pictures i see on line seem different etc..Hope I got what I paid for...Thanks....

    The 62 Original I sold recently had the same thing going on.

    I have only seen them them tapered poles. I've had a few of them, and have always removed the bridge plate, so I wouldn't be concerned to much by that. Is there a sticker on the bottom?
     
  5. I have '62's on 2 of my P's. Both have pole pieces which are very slightly beveled (chamfered) and project slightly above the black pick up cover.

    I have a set from a '62 Reissue. The poles are also flat and extend above the cover.
    Wire is black and white, waxed cloth. Maybe they are reissue?

    It depends of the year of production.
    My '97 P-bass has Original 62 Pickup with flat poles at cover level, newer ones are beveled and extend above the cover (had one in my 60th Ann P)

    I've got the beveled version in my '74 P and I LOVE these things. Great pickups, IMHO. These and my LaBella Jamerson strings do the trick like there's no tomorrow.
     
  9. I'm sorry, was out of town..they are presently installed ,there are no markings on bottom as I remember, the pickups, seem weak etc. The poles are very sharp edged and protrude. I wish ;with so many p pickups there was a way to id. them . Thanks for your interest ,I probably should have bought new ones.My 60's rw jazz bass has real nice pickups, was hoping for the same for my precision.....
