The 9S-S is the Fender Jazz Bass (J Bass) replacement pickup with a short neck. This pickup is highly respected by musicians and luthiers alike for its deepest tone out of the J Bass pickup family. It features a single coil design.
The “original series” bass pickups with passive designs. Are cast in epoxy to remove unwanted feedback and microphonics.
The length of the neck pickup in the original J-basses are not equal. The neck pickup is 3-5/8″ long. Some modern designs, however, use two ‘long’ bridge-length pickups. In this configuration it is important to use the “LN” (long neck) pickup that is specifically designed to work in this position (do not use a bridge pickup in the neck position). Some (very few) use two ‘short’ neck length pickups. Please check the physical size of the pickups you want to replace to make sure the replacements fit properly.
