Description

Glue eliminates the possibility of detaching the flatwork from the magnets, and the varnish adds additional structural strength and prevents electrical shorting wire on the magnets.

    I have bought a pair of Alexander’s JB-pickups to replace the pickups of a 1974 (japanese) Fujigen made Jazz bass. Fujigen basses deliver great craftsmanship (in this case even heavy craftsmanship, the bass weights 4,8 kilogramm) but the japanese pickups used to be below that high standart. With Alexander’s pickups my Fujigen sounds much better then before – I am very much satisfied.

    The shipment from Moscow to Germany took three weeks (mostly because of customs). I didn’t have to pay for taxes, the postman brought me a small parcel with the pickups. Installation was easy beside that the pickup covers were at their ends too square to fit for the Fujigen PU “holes”. Just a millimeter but… At the end I’ve used the pickup covers of other japanese pickups and they were rather fitting – problem solved.

    Alexander’s Jazz Bass- Pickups sound really nice. I particularly like their heigths, they sound very clear and defined and never sharp. Lows and Mids are also nicely defined. It’s very difficult for me to compare the sound of these pickups to other pickups in other Jazz Basses I own (two pre CBS Fenders and a 1984 Tokai) because the 74′ Fujigen is made out of different (ash instead of alder?) and much heavier wood. But I guess Alexander’s PUs sound less vintage than Fender Custom Shop 60s and definitely less vintage than the originals. On the other hand they don’t sound super modern or “boutique”. I lke them for my 74′ Fujigen – and I will order another pair for another 70s replacement…

    As I have announced in my previous review, I have used another pair of Alexander’s Jazz PUs for a replacement. This time on a Japanese 70s Jazz bass with maple neck, with alder (or ash?) body and again with the “famous” 70s PU spacing. I can only second myself: The PUs sound great! A significant improvement! They sound different to the ones I’ve bought previously from Alexander – because they are set up in a different bass. I think that’s a feature: Unlike Seymour Duncan Quarterpounders that always sound like Quarterpounders these PUs are much more supportive to the original sound of the bass. I hope “Out of stock” doesn’ t mean “Out of production” as these PUs definitely deserve a wide distribution. The price/value ratio is outstanding.
