I build these pickups to order with an approximate 3 week build time, please contact prior to purchase for an accurate ETA.
Introducing the “Dirty Slappers” P-Bass pickup set, wound with period correct ’60s wire. I wind these pickups on a grey bottom late ’60s style bobbin with alnico 5 magnets. The wind is classic mid to late ’60s 42 AWG Plain enamel wire slightly overwound to 11.5k. These pickups have punchy yet crystal cleans with a nice bass low end growl and clear high ends. This set does not come with the brass grounding plate but includes the foam rubber mounts.
My “Dirty Slappers” have been described by one Brisbane guitar tech as the best vintage reproduction pickups he has heard!
