1979 Fender USA Lefty Jazz Bass bridge pickup – Rewind


NOT FOR SALE – Repair example

I had the rare chance to rewind the bridge pickup on this rare Lefty 1979 Fender USA Jazz Bass.  I did a great job on the pickup but a terrible job photographing the guitar itself so please forgive me.  Once again lacquer was the killer here and Fender stopped it for a reason.  Lacquer dries up hard and over time the pickup will flex and expand and contract and the lacquer doesn’t.  The lacquer cracks and takes the windings with it.  I rewound this pickup to 8.46k with period correct 42 AWG Plain enamel wire and nailed it!
