P-Bass Pole Adjustable Pickups?

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Aussiephoenix, Jun 7, 2005.


  1. Hi guys,

    I'm trying to identify the pickups that I have in my Oakland,
    and I dont really know how to do it...

    I've found these:

    which look exactly the same.

    same color, same adjustable pole pieces...

    Now, I dont remember seeing many adjustable pole piece PBass pups, do you guys know if there are a lot more?

    Is there a more reliable way to identify them?

    thanks.

    Schaller also offers adjustable pole pieces on their P pickups. Those were usually black - I'm not sure if they came in cream or not. Chances are good that you've got DiMarzio's.

    I have a pair of black Schaller P-Bass pups. I got them off Ebay and the guy thought they were Dimarzios. I looked underneath and it says "Made in Germany". I called Dimarzio and they told me they only make theirs in the USA. So, you might check that.

    Also, Schallers always user Yellow/Brown and Green/White. Yellow/Brown on one of the Split Ps and Green/White on the other split Ps.

    So, if it doesn't say "Made in Germany" and the colors used are those of Dimarzios (Red/Black and Green/White), you probably have Dimarzios.

    it sounds more like dimarzios, but the dimarzios by what ive been told have a green instead of that orange.
