Overview

The Bartolini 57J1 5-String Vintage Jazz Bass Pickup Set is a great way to improve the electronics on your jazz bass. They feature dual Coil design, producing low noise, with a perceived brightness in the neck position and deep tone from the bridge position. The bridge pickup is slightly longer in this pair. Some modern 5 string basses are using Fender J-Bass* pairs of equal length (both pickup bodies Long / Treble) Please check for this possibility before ordering 5 string J-J pickups.

Comments about Bartolini 57J1 5-String Vintage Jazz Bass Pickup Set:

I purchased these as replacements for Fender Jazz 5-string MIM (Mexican). They cancel the 60Hz hum inherent with the stock single coil pickups and they are very quiet...I highly recommend these for recording.

Soldering and installation was very easy, although I do have a lot of soldering experience. The only difficulty was fitting them into the routed holes in the body and the pick guard. They are a bit snug, but not too large. I suggest getting precision files or rasps to gently modify the body and pickguard for a good fit.

The tonal improvement was dramatic...the bridge pup has increased low frequency response, and the neck pup has increased brightness. Bartolini pickups are great and you won't be dissatisfied at all!

Remember to measure your pickups with a tape measure first before purchasing. Check the specifications to find the dimensions. The 57J1 set fits perfectly, but the 59J1 are much smaller and do not work with the MIM 5-string.

Amazing sound improvement!

Comments about Bartolini 57J1 5-String Vintage Jazz Bass Pickup Set:

Just replaced the pickups in my 03 Fender MIM jazz passive 5string and I couldn't be happier! On stage my stock pickups hum all the time, so I did some shielding at the same time as the Bartolini 57 install and the hum is 99 percent gone! The Bartolini sound is amazingly clean, full, warm, and powerful. They are well worth the few extra dollars, I would get these again!
