The 59J-LN1 is the Fender Jazz Bass (J Bass) replacement 'long neck' pickup for the neck position. NOTE: For J Bass instruments where both the neck and bridge pickup lengths are equal, the 'long neck' is especially designed for the neck position. It is highly respected by musicians and luthiers alike for its deep tone, strong lows, low mids tone. They feature a split coil design.
This is an "original series" bass pickup with a passive design. It is cast in epoxy to remove unwanted feedback and microphonics.
The lengths of the neck and bridge pickups in the original J-basses are not equal. The neck pickup is 3-5/8" long, which is slightly shorter than the bridge pickup, which is 3-3/4" 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.
