    First up is the Raised-A Precision pickup. The origin is a mystery. I pulled this off my '78 P but it's most likely from a '57 reissue from the '80s or '90s.

    For some mysterious reason, the response from the A string is much hotter. But I was able to get relatively even sting response by raising the E side and lowering the A as much as I could.

    Frankly, I find the Lindy Fralins I put in to be thicker and more pleasing for tone. But this one still sounds OK. Can't have been too bad - the bass has been my main "keeper" and go-to axe for recording for some years.

    There is some varnish on the pole piece - no idea what that's about. The black lead has been spliced, about 2 inches away from the coil. That's how it came to me & it's never been a problem.

    That's about all I know on this. Covers are included. Mounting screws & foam are NOT included. How about $40, shipped to the lower 48?

    And now the DiMarzio DP149 Ultra-Jazz set (DP147+DP148 or bridge + neck)

    These come from a relatively recent Nash J-bass. They've seen a few dozen gigs & they have a bit of cosmetic wear. They sound quite delicious if I do say so - very sharp, deep and "modern". They look old-school but they have ceramic magnets underneath. Awesome if you're in to the "scoop" sound and dislike hum. (Alas I prefer the more raw, aggressive nature of single-coils.)

    Beware: DiMarzios are somewhat physically deeper than conventional Jazz Bass pickups. Thinner foam may suffice, but it might be necessary to deepen the pickup routs slightly in some basses.

    How about $60, shipped lower 48?

    Reasonable trades and offers considered on either set.

    ... and $50 shipped ConUS for the Ultra-Jazz?
