    I was wondering, do you guys know who make these pickups. My cousin put some in his P bass and they sound pretty good. They read 10.5K and Alnico 5 mag.

    Sounds like the Golden Age series. They're nice pups, wherever they come from.

    I once heard that they were made by the GFS folks, but haven't seen any proof of that.

    i was thinking about putting them in my Jazz bass? Wondering if anyone out there has done that?
  4. I use their guitar pickups and they sound great. I am Fred cousin, and know the cousin he is talking about and those pickups sound very good. I was thinking about buying ,one of Carvin kit Basses. The Golden Age pickups are suppose to be to Fender specs. I was thinking about putting those pickups in it, if I did not like their pickups. I know I do not like their guitar pickups, I own one of their strats.

    StewMac has them custom made for them to their specs. They are not made by GFS. I've heard good things about them.
  6. Seems to me I read somewhere, they were made by Wilkinson. I might be wrong, I know Wilkinson makes guitar pickups.
