Linear humbucking pickup set for traditional 5-string Jazz bass adds punch and articulation missing from standard Jazz bass pickups.
The Apollo 5-string Jazz Bass pickups have a traditional look, but the punchy and articulate tone they deliver is definitely unique to Seymour Duncan. These pickups use a linear humbucking design where two coils sit next to each other under the cover to cancel hum, while the voicing of the coils gives you fatter lows and crisper highs, right down to the low B string. This pickup set uses the cover size of traditional Fender 5-string Jazz basses. If you have one of the modern ‘Jazz V’ models, use the 67/70 model for the proper fit. Comes with black cover.
Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, Apollo Jazz Bass pickups use hand ground alnico 5 rod magnets and are vacuum wax potted for feedback-free performance.
