Recommended for pop, blues, classic rock and heavy rock, the Basslines AJJ-1 Active Replacement Pickup Set provides a modern, broad tonal response that's perfect for a Jazz Bass, but without the brittleness found in other active pickups. The design is based on the old Seymour Duncan Active EQ "Switch" pickups. Basslines took the most popular switch setting and "hard wired" it for convenience. Includes logo covers.

Comments about Basslines AJJ-1 Pro-active Replacement Pickups for Fender J Bass:
In the late 80's the origial pick ups in my 1971 Fender Jazz Bass were giving up the ghost and I chose to give my classic axe a modernized sound make-over and I'm so very glad that I did. The Seymour Duncan Active "Switch Pick-up" system gave me punch, clarity, mid-range growl and anything in between. Turning the Volume & Tone Controls to different levels also causes phasing effects and allows for infinite sounds. These things really are incredible. It defined my sound for many years; I can't say enough good about them other than the switches in time required frequent cleaning to prevent short circuiting and eventually failed altogether. I had tried to find this style of pick-ups for other instruments to no avail so imagine my joy upon learning of the AJJ-1 Replacement Set which is the same pick-up without switches, hard wired to the most common setting. Thanks Seymour Duncan and Guitar Center for helping get my sound back.
