  • SX replacement pick-ups...

    Has anyone replaced the pick-ups on their jazz? If so, what are you using, did they fit and if they didn't, how difficult was it to "make them fit"?

    the east is visible even in the west,
    so will be the coming of the Son of Man.

    I dropped a set of Fender Vintage '60s pups n my SX Jazz with no mods. Any standard J-pup should drop right in.

    Some SX J-basses have a weird neck pup route---it's larger than a normal J route. SX has offered a few basses with a P/J pup set up on a J body, so don't freak out when you pull the pickguard. The big route is normal.

      and it sucks, do you think if enough people wrote to Essex they would stop routing out such a big route.

        Thanks a bunch. Are all of their p/ups the same size? Meaning, do you think the "noiseless" p/ups would also drop right in the body

          How about pups for their 5-string J-basses? I've been contemplating upgrading, and I'd probably do it sooner if I knew there wouldn't be any routing or anything.

            The difference in most 'noiseless' Jazz pups is that a second humbucking coil is stacked beneath the top coil. The length and width are the same as a standard J pup, but the depth might be greater on a noiseless pup.

            I'd suggest comparing specs at the manufacturer's websites to make sure the dimensions will work for your bass.
