    I have a fender that needs a pickup replacement and unfortunately both pickups are small (neck size - 3.6in). Further, the mounting screws are further apart than a typical neck pickup (1.5in, I believe, the same width as a typical bridge pickup).

    Does anyone know of any sets that have 2 short pickups? I heard nordstrand will make a set, but I was hoping to explore all potential options. Thanks in advance.

    Ah, yeah. Thanks for the suggestion. I had come across those as well. From what I've read they're a bit warmer than I was hoping for. I was hoping to find a set with a more traditional sound.

    They all do. You might have to order two neck pickups instead of a set, but they will all sell you a pair of neck pickups.

    Caveat: the difference between a J-neck and a J-bridge isn't just the length, they are RWRP. So unless you purchase a pair of pickups that are already internally humbucking, like the split coil pickups like a DiMarzio J or any of the others from various manufacturers, you may not get the humbucking effect with both pickups dimed.

    Nordstrand will make you a matching (neck and bridge) set of nj4 (single coil) both neck size.

    Thanks. That was pretty much what I gathered from what info I could find online. It sounds like the nj4s are the best bet at getting a traditional jazz bass sound from a s/s setup.
