White pickup covers Jazz Bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Theexploitbass, Jan 18, 2006.

  1. Show me you jazz basses with white pickup covers... Im toying with the idea of putting a white pickup cover on the neck pickup on me 5 string jazz bass... not sure if they are available for a 5er though! Show me pics (sorry if this has been done before)

    What color and pickguard combo do you have? I can make a mock-up of a bass that looks like yours with whitep pickups when I get home from work later tonight.
  3. That would be ace, its a five string jazz black body, white pickguard and rosewood fret board!! could u do a few pictures for me?? One with the white pickup just on the neck, then another with it just the bridge then one with both??

    Cheers man

    It's not a five string (that would be a lot of work ;)). But here's the three pictures: I like the black bridge/white neck pickup combo best.

    Interesting look. I've always wanted a black Jazz with black pickgaurd with white pickups. I think I saw an old U2 video in the 80s (New Years Day, perhaps?) and Clayton was playing a Jazz with block inlays on rosewood board (I'd prefer maple) with the black on black, white pickup covers thing going on. Quite cool I thought. However I must say, that white pickup over in the mid position with white pickgaurd and the black in the bridge is kinda cool.

    Here is my modified APB-5 with EMG pickups.
  8. That APB-5 look sweet!! I think i do prefer the black bridge/white neck combo... but the all white looks pretty cool too!! Anyone know where I can get white pickup covers for a 5 string??
