Just curious, but why the stock Yamahas? I know that they will sell them seperately, put they will charge you an arm and a leg for them. If you do have your heart set on getting the Yamaha p/us, I would suggest ebay or the wanted forum here on TB,
I don't know if this will help any....
Its $8.50 w/free shipping.
(this is not mine btw just trying to help locate things for OP)
Shoot, a near miss--I have a spare 5-string vintage BB pickup I could sell, but you need 4-string.
It would be easier to have custom pickup rings cut so that the outside dimensions & mounting screws were the same but the interior cutout would house a traditional p-pickup. There are several folks who can cut this for you but here's one I've used:
If the thing you need is P-pup with any ring then you can try this ring with a standard p-pup:
The Yamaha pickups are a proprietary size so good luck finding anyone selling them separately on the used market. I'm assuming you tried all the part numbers on the yamaha parts website (https://www.yamaha24x7.com/yamahaOMS)
Some options to consider:
You may find a cheap BB414 that you can gut but that seems like a lot of money for what amounts to an average sounding pickup.
A custom winder like Aero or Nordstrand could make you a p-pickup with a custom made yamaha-sized cover.
Fabricate a new ring made for a Fender sized pickup and your pickup choices expand infinitely.
