These Jazz Bass pickups, like the Ironstone Stratocaster & Telecaster range, are based on Alnico V magnet Pole Pieces for warm vintage tone. They feature resistances of 7.3K (bridge) and 7.1K Ohm for a balance of full authoritative bass, but with crispness in the tone to stand out in the mix. Their classic construction includes traditional fibre flat work bobbins and flat pattern Alnico pole pieces, spaced at  63mm (neck) and 65mm (bridge). To complete the vintage appeal, a generous length of waxed cloth (‘push-back’) connection cable is fitted.

The pickups are configured as RWRP configuration, i.e. noise cancelling when selected / blended together.
Standardly supplied with a fully comprehensive mounting kit of screws, springs, 2 lengths of self adhesive foam to attach under the pickups to support the mounting and a length of latex tubing. Simply cut this tubing into appropriate lengths for your instrument (approx 1cm), and use an alternative to the conventional springs, providing a firm yet adjustable mount.
Please note some Jazz Bass pickups come in differing physical sizes. These are 95mm (Bridge) and 91mm (Neck) long.
The wiring colour code is;
Bridge pickup:    Yellow = signal , black = ground
Neck pickup:       White = signal , black = ground

    I decided to try this pickups first of all for their really super competitive price, i have a fretless jazz bass with humbuckers , and i was searching search a true vintage style alnico V single coil.These pickups are great, a really vintage sound jazz bass with a very nice dynamics to the fingers touch, they sound fantastic with my fretless.
    They are very well made , with lot of attention to the details, they came with all the accessories for mountig and also something more ( plastic covers , neoprene cushion foam , screws and also a rubber tube and also with springs!! ) all into a very nice plastic box, for their cost they are near to be a miracle!!
    I highly recommend this jazz bass Ironstone pickups, they sound very nice, are very well made and have a really outstanding value.

    • Many thanks for the comments Marco. I try to provide a complete kit as you have found!

    Bought these pups to uprate an old Squier jazz bass I picked up and the end result is very good indeed..Plenty of punch and good note clarity even with the flat wound strings that I use for blues/country rock.Well constructed and with a comprehensive fitting kit,choice of springs,foam,or rubber tubing and screws these pups are very good value.
