    Hey folks,

    Does anybody have any thoughts or opinions regarding wilkinson pickups. I have been offered a pair of j's for next to nothing, i believe they are the WJBE900F and WJBE900R.

    I have looked them up on the net and cant find much info but the jhs site seems to suggest they are pretty good for the money.

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Don't recall ever hearing of them but if you can rid of them for what you have in them or need some cheap pups to sell a bass, you have nothing to lose.

    Just because pups are inexpensive doesn't mean they won't have decent tone. I ran across a number of pups for under $20 used that I'd take over some pups costing $200 new. I have a set of PV pups I have about $5 dollars in that I've had from day 1 practically - sending Barts, Frailins, Nordstrand, and like packing since. It just depends on what you're looking for.
