NOTE: This pickup was incorrectly packaged by DiMarzio as a DP148. The box has been opened (by us) to confirm the model number (DP123LBK), but is otherwise in brand new, original condition. The manufacturer's warranty is still valid for this item.
The DiMarzio DP123 Model J™ J-Bass Bridge Pickup reproduces the warmth and roundness of the traditional Fender® Jazz Bass® sound with increased power and hum-cancellation. The additional power translates into a bigger sound that emphasizes the resonant character of the instrument. The DiMarzio Model J™ pickup's sensitivity and deep tone are also the perfect complement to fretless basses. Double-stop glissandos and delicate violin-style vibrato speak with a classic, woody voice simply by backing off slightly on the tone control.
Unlike traditional Js, each Model J™ is individually humbucking. It's not a stack: each coil picks up one pair of strings. By doing it this way, the resistance is kept down, and the tone is clean and clear.
The DiMarzio Model J™ was designed to fit the original Fender Jazz Bass, which has neck and bridge pickup cavities of two different sizes. Some current basses use the same length pickup in both positions. The DP123L pickup was designed to fit in the bridge position of a Fender Jazz Bass but could also be used in the neck position if it fits your instrument. Please refer to the dimensions below for the correct choice for your bass.
Due to the packaging of this product, this pickup is considered B-stock and is not returnable (although the pickup itself is in new, original condition with full warranty).
