I just bought another OEM HB for 20 bucks from a store on music-go-round. I was so happy with the results of the HB I tossed in my lefty, I bought another one Smile

now I have to figure out which bass it will go into.....

sorry that would help..

looks like this one I put in the lefty:


jackson branded j40 4stringer pup with a weird 9.13 on each coil. This one I just found has the typical worn out white lettering and a cracked trim
ring


and since I received the guitar IN July, it fits in this thread Wink

a little closer picture than the ebay ad:


I also had the pointy version for a while:

That looks like the same, exact pickup I used for my low/clean channel on my red Yamaha BB300! Wink

some company wound them all for Jackson, so I'll bet yours is the same, minus the Jackson cover unless you really mean you have a Jackson branded HB in your red one. Smile

It had the same cover on it with the Jackson logo exactly like yours, Mike. I'll try and dig up a picture of it to show you. This would have been on my bass that was stolen from me back in 1997.

did you ever see one of these before Eric?
one of my friends on TB just picked them up.
Both are mid-late 80's 'Masayoshi Yamashita' of 'Loudness' signature models. The black one has all EMGs & is fully active.

No, I haven't seen one of those before! Shocked

I totally love the look of the P's being angled like that. Twisted! Wink

no he did not get them yet, so I'll ask to hear a clip or something if he wants to post one somewhere.

those belong to Gary (Cetera) on TB. He is the one who want's my TBX to add to his collection, so If I ever find a lefty to keep forever, that thing will go.

hey ERIC, I'll bet you know exactly what this is attached to huh? Smile

Honestly Mike, I do recognize the design, but I cannot recall why.

I give up. What is it attached to?

I've seen just about every combo of pups there is but never a pp/j before...kinda cool and unique.

He said he paid a grand for both of them from a collector over in the UK where he lives.

They didn't. The stock bridges on both of my BB300's were the garden-variety Precision style. That one is cool, though! Wink

Could be. I only had BB300's, although I know that Yamaha made several different models that had all sorts of numbers.

I put a post in the Jackson basses thread on tb this week:

there is a red JPB on Ebay this week:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...STRK:MEBIDX:IT
good luck to whoever wins it because I'm broke and won't be bidding.

so like an idiot I put 125.00 as a top bid because I thought someone, someone, someone would outbid me by like 5 dollars cause it had a case, but NOOOOOO...

lol, so here's another Jackson I just won. early 90's MIJ JPB7-active 24fret ( we called it the turnip bass )
but hell for 125 WITH a case, that means I paid like 75.00 for the thing so I'm not gonna cry about it, I'm gonna eat chef-boy-ar-dee for lunch and dinner all week cause now for sure I am broke !!!

I just saw someone who paid 300 something for a green one a couple months ago, and never expected to have this one get no bids...oh well, another Jackson for the collection until I make the "customary/obligatory" youtube video and someone says hey you wanna sell it....

I'm gonna go buy a sheet of waterslide paper and use our color laser printer at work to make an alienware sticker on it to match the strange body.

they also made a couple fancier in the series, a SB version JPB8 and a naked oiled version JPB9.

and since we are talking about Jackson JPB's, here's what a JPB9 looks like and a brief description of he JPB series:







Jackson JPB basses were only made for about 3 months in 1993 and never appeared in a Jackson catalog. Only 1200 JPBs of all models were produced, of which only a few were the top of the line "9." Production was halted due to a lawsuit carried out by a small luthier whose copyrighted body shape had been illegally copied by Jackson for these instruments. These superb instruments were produced in Japan, and represent the finest bass ever made by the Jackson company. The body is rock maple with padauk caps front and back, and the neck is solid maple.

seems like a bass that i can use to have all the fans begging at my feet to play more on.

My guess would be that he means your infamous "or something like that" quote. Wink

BTW, that video you just did is a complete riot! Absolutely brilliant! Laughing

as bad as the TijuanaBall joke video? -- naw.....

and the "something like that" is so old I don't even think about it, just say it at the end because I am not the original artist, playing the original bass, playing the note-for-note tone-for-tone parts, so.....

it will ALWAYS BE: "Something like that"
