    Well Sadowsky guys what PJ sets does Roger use - DiMarzios, SD's ?????, all the clips I heard sound great, and I know he doesn't make PU's - just fabulous basses that I cannot afford right now.....

    Thoughts please.

    You can buy the pickups he uses on his site and they're not hella expensive. Look in the "store" section.

    While I don't know if its true, I have heard for years that Sadowsky PU's were manufactured by Dimarzio. I know they have recently been using a "custom wound" Nordstrand for some of their five-string P pickups.

    His PJ set, I believe, is made to his specs by DiMarzio. Lately has is starting to offer Nordstrand PJ sets in some of his builds. Id email Kevin Drexler and get the full skinny

    I heard his single-coil Jazz are SD. The humcancelling are DiMarzio Ultrajazz. Don't know about the PJ's. He's a member here and you can ask directly. And yes, he sells them directly.

    Cheers all - I'm gonna try to throw a PJ set and a Sad pre in to a build I'm doing right now, hopefully it'll stave off my Sadowsky gas til after X-mas!!!

    I'm pretty sure dimarzo makes the humcancelling Js, Duncan makes the single coil Js and the Ps ... but they're all made to Roger's specs, they're not copies of some other stock pickup.

    Don't know who actually manufacturers the Sadowsky P-pup, maybe it's even DiMarzio, but I can tell you that the Model P sounds significantly different from the Sadowsky P. Both are great IMO, but different.
