Less is more. As tried and true as that old adage is, we all know that sometimes more is more. For many bassists, the quest for more meant yanking the stock pickups out of their Fender® Jazz Bass® and replacing them with Basslines® Quarter-Pound™ Jazz pickups. The massive, 1/4" pole pieces gave them more punch, more clarity, and more volume. When the range of the 4-string bass wasn't enough, many players migrated to the 5-string, reveling in the extended low frequencies that were now at their disposal.

The folks at Basslines, Seymour Duncan's all-bass division, are urging those bassists to go even one step further as they proudly introduce the Quarter-Pound for 5-String Jazz Bass. These pickups feature the same great tone that has made their 4-string counterparts Basslines' best-selling bass model with all the extended range that goes with a 5-string bass.

One of the toughest things about amplifying a 5-string bass is that the low-B string gets lost. Not any more. The mean, punchy, articulate sound of these 5-String Quarter Pound pickups will transform what was an indistinct low B into one that speaks loud and clear. The result is more growl, more definition, and more character than was ever thought possible.

Bassists can use the Quarter-Pound for 5-String Jazz Bass pickups with passive volume and tone controls. Or, for maximum control, they can be matched with Basslines' STC-2p or STC-3p Tone Circuit, which offers either two or three bands of active EQ together with a proprietary slap contour switch.

The SJ5-3 Quarter-Pound for 5-String Jazz Bass pickups are hand built in Seymour Duncan's Santa Barbara, California workshop and include mounting hardware and instructions. They are a direct retrofit for Fender Jazz V™ basses.

SJ5-3 Specifications:

  • Cable: 2 Conductor, shielded
  • DC Res: Neck: 20.9 K Ohms / Bridge: 22.2 K Ohms
  • Res Peak: Neck: 5.56 K Hz / Bridge: 5.65 K Hz
  • Magnet: .25" Alnico 5
