    Up for sale is a set of Bartolini split coil passive jazz pickups for a 4-string bass!!!

    The back of pickups have model numbers - Neck: 9J-S4 & Bridge: 9J-L4 which denotes these are split coil construction for hum canceling and deep tone. They have MAD BOOTY!

    These are awesome jazz pickups that came straight out of my "like new" modulus vj4 from 2004. They are fantastic, fat, clear sounding pickups that I'm only selling because I have upgraded to some fancy boutique pups and I'd like to offset the cost of buying them.

    These are a great value at the asking price of
    $100 shipped, considering their condition! Plenty of wire left on them 0402152202. 0402152202a. 0402152203. 0402152203a. Don't miss your chance to snag these awesome, TOTALLY NOISELESS, Baller Barts! Paypal preferred. Thanks for looking!

    Hey I know you're trying to sell but are you interested in any kind of trades??? I'd love to have Barts in my Squier Jazz, but I'm broke at the moment. Sigh. lol

    Pm me with what you'd be trying to trade. I'm not really looking for much right now but you never know. I can be swayed from time to time.

    I am not sure, I can try to check when I get home. I do know they are standard for a fender 70s jazz configuration so if that helps...

    I have no idea what a 70s config would equate to! :whistle: So whenever you have a chance to measure 'em, let me know... Thanks!

    Considering them! The bass in question is a passive 32" fretless Warmoth (ash body, wenge neck, pau ferro board). Currently strung with GHS Precision flats. But I'm completely unfamiliar with the sound of Barts. I prefer a mid-range presence, not scooped highs & lows. What would you say the sounds of these pups leaned towards?

    Bart's descriptions are pretty vague (i found better descriptions on old threads here at TB). Also i couldn't find the exact models listed on Bart's product page. I'm guessing they're the "original" set, not the "classic" set?

    I know what you mean, it can be hard to derive much info from company descriptions. Here's my opinion on them:

    Firstly they are completely quiet when plugged in. The tone tends to lean towards the low mids. While the entire mid range is nice and even and clear, there is a bit more fatness in the lower register. The highs are very present yet controlled, not over the top.

    The best way I could sum up their sound is very clear and even, controlled sound across all the strings with a deep fatness to the sound that keeps it real smooth and thick. It's a meatier tone than your average fender jazz sound.

    As a matter of fact they came out of my modulus vj4 fretless, so I can attest to them being very rich for that fretless sound. They might be just what you're looking for judging from what you're saying.
