    Hi guys,
    currently I've got two Pure Vintage '74 inside my Fender Jazz 1975 bass, as the original pickups were missing.
    Since I've found two original 1974 Fender Jazz pickups in a near shop, I'm wondering if they can suit my bass to restore its "authenticity" at best.

    So my question is: do you know if 1974 pickups were also used inside 1975 jazz basses (3 bolt neck) ? Or would it be a wrong way to restore it and I should wait for a couple of pickups from 1975?
  2. Yes, those would be period correct replacements. I’ve also heard great 70’s winds from other pickup builders like Seymour Duncan and Nordstrand. If you want 1975 pickups, they are quite pricey.
