The Hot Jazz Bass pickup (SJB-2) is a hot-rodded version of the classic Jazz Bass single-coil pickup with increased warmth and growl in the bridge and more punch in the neck position.
We used that classic jazz tone foundation and added some punch. These pickups are voiced a little lower than a traditional jazz, with a hotter output and fuller low end than the original, giving you boom without too much top end sizzle. The hand ground alnico 5 rod magnets, and custom coil wind deliver a warmer, fatter Jazz Bass tone with a lower midrange growl. The more aggressive attack from these pickups make them great for all things rock.
The neck pickup is wound RWRP so that it will hum-cancel when used together with the bridge pickup. These pickups are drop-in replacements for any American Standard Jazz Bass.
Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the Hot for Jazz Bass pickups use hand ground alnico 5 rod magnets, forbon flatwork, and are wax potted for squeal free operation. Both pickups come with black logo covers.
