I like this design, and I would love to see these pickups on a regular Sadowsky, especially a Metro.
I like that solution to the 60s/70s pickup quandry. (I tried achieving something similar with a Bartolini MusicMan-style quad-coil soapbar but the dimensions only allowed one of the coil pairs to be in the exact Jazz Bass location.) Gotta admit though, aesthetically I prefer the Sadowsky singlecut body on their rear-loaded Modern basses more than that Vintage model.
I like the idea behind the pickup but I'd need to hear it before ordering one. I just don't like spilt coil style jazz pickups as they don't sound like true single coils and are usually too mid scooped. I think it might be cool if both the coils were true single coils. You wouldn't be able to use it in dual coil mode because both would need to be the same polarity to hum cancel with the neck coil.
I dig it, but would prefer one with a fancy top and no pickguard. Don't care for the blue one in the video though.
The fancy top with no guard is the one over his shoulder in the video.
It's kind of cool. I dig it. I even like that bright blue.
No, I mean a fancy top with the vintage pickups.
Ah. Got it.
The Hammersmith I have coming was ordered with a similar thing going on. It has a Seymour Duncan NYC at the bridge and a single/series/parallel switch to put it to good use.
I hear ya, like the concept and a very cool bass but $5100 is above my budget. A Metro version would be affordable to many more players.
I did not know it is $5,100. NYC Sadowskys have really become expensive.
