This is a high-output true single-coil pickup set for 5-string bass guitar. Recommended for blues, classic rock, garage, heavy rock and nu-metal, it delivers amazing output and super strong attack. The quarter-inch alnico pole piece magnets together with over-wound coil provide full response with great control. Includes logo cover. These pickups are a direct retrofit for Fender Jazz V and many other popular 5-string basses. The Basslines pickup will accommodate string spacings up to 3.10" (78.7mm) for bridge pickup and 3.00" (76.2mm) for neck pickup.

Comments about Basslines SJ5-3S Quarter-Pounder Pickup for 5-String Jazz Bass Set:
I own a 5 string Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass that was made in 2008. It sounded great right off the shelf, but seemed to always lack in volume. It had good tone, but seemed to always be missing that special something. I ordered this pickup set and had them installed. I brought my bass back home a few days later and was completely blown away when I turn my amp on and began playing. With my on-board preamp set flat, my sound was louder, clearer, had more attack, and the B string was incredible. As a matter of fact, these pickups really help eliminate the floppy, farty sound that 34" scale fivers tend to bring with their B strings. This alone is worth buying the pickups for. The balance between the strings was perfect. The highs were clear, but not harsh, the mids stood out, and the low end was solid, enunciated, and punchy. If your bass seems to be missing that special something, give these a try. You will love them. I have yet to meet a bass player that does not like these pickups. I can clearly see why these are one of the most popular pickups Guitar Center and Seymour Duncan sells.
