    Pickups are in excellent condition with little usage on them. Wiring length is same as new set. Bought set new, but case came cracked.

    Ships to the 48 states. Price includes shipping to the 48 states. No trades.

    Seymour Duncan Apollo Jazz Bass Pickup Features:
    • An amazing after-market Alnico 5 J Bass pickup set
    • Linear dual-coil configuration blocks out noise and hum
    • Specially formulated for added punch and fat bass tone
    • Fits any standard Jazz Bass pickup routing
    • Traditional look goes well with any J Bass aesthetic
    The Apollo Jazz Bass pickups have a traditional look, but the punchy and articulate tone they deliver is definitely unique to Seymour Duncan. These pickups utilize a linear humbucking design with two coils that sit next to each other under the cover. The way the coils are wired delivers hum-free performance while creating a sonic fatness and oomph that can often be missing from traditional single coil Jazz bass pickups - just what you need to take your tone to the next level.

    The Apollo Jazz Bass Linear Humbuckers were designed to maintain the traditional tone and get rid of the problems of hum, noise and environmental sounds that are all to common today. The issue of string to string balance was addressed. On Jazz Basses the balance will be off, especially on the higher strings. As you play across the neck from the E and A strings and then cross to D and G the output typically drops, sometimes even on the A string. We did a little bit of fattening on the bridge pickup, staying really close to the traditional tonality but addressing some performance issues.
