U Retro

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Theexploitbass, Mar 16, 2006.


  1. Hey all

    I have the chance of buying a U retro second hand for quite a decent price. Now i want to put it in my MIM jazz bass V, i understand that they have the J retro which pretty much just slots in. Will the U retro fit in my Jazz???

    you will most likely need to do a little creative routing to get it to fit unless you have a rear routed bass

    all the best,

    (As the designer) Really not recommended, can't see how it would fit without extensive rear routing. Better off trying to find a J-Retro at a good price where you wouldn't have to touch the bass at all.
