Vintage Jazz Bass Question

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by OldCityBass, Dec 20, 2003.


  1. I've never even held a vintage J bass (my oldest jazz is 3) and I'm posting this question for a guitar player friend who has apparently come accross one ...

    What is on the bottom of 1966 Jazz bass pickups?
    Is it like a regular 1966 Strat pickup and should it have a date on it, or what should I look for to be sure they are the stock pickups?

    Thanks!

    Yeah, they should be dated just like the strats are. 4 numbers: the first two digits are the week, and the last two digits are the year.
