Lollar J-Bass Bridge & P-Bass, Analysis and Review Mar 14, 2017 1:31:56 GMT -5

The white covers are aftermarket, so the only thing Lollar in the pick are the pole pieces.
I have a few Fender Aerodyne bass guitars with this particular pickup set, the result being that I have several Jazz bridges for review, but not many neck pickups.
Lollar J-Bass Bridge 2014
- DC Resistance: 9.69K ohms
- Measured L: 4.881H
- Calculated C: 131pF (141 - 10)
- Gauss: 1100G
unloaded: dV: 15.6dB f: 6.07kHz (black)
loaded (200k & 470pF): dV: 4.3dB f: 2.76kHz (red)
The DC resistance and inductance I've measured are quite a bit higher than what Lollar shows on his site www.lollarguitars.com/technical-information. Lollar shows a DC resistance of 8.5 and an inductance of 4.0, I see a resistance of 9.7k and an L of 4.8H. Mine is a 2014 model, he might have changed it up since then.
It appears that this 2014 models I have somewhat "overwound" compared to the Fender '74 Jass Bass evaluated here guitarnuts2.proboards.com/thread/7895/fender-pure-vintage-analysis-review , the loaded peak of that Fender is 3.13kHz, while the loaded peak of the Lollar is 2.76kHz. The SD Quearter Pound Jazz bridge has a loaded peak of 2.13kHz, so it's closer to the vintage Fender than the hot Duncan.
I had hoped to extrapolate the neck values based on the published inductance, but since my values varied from those published, I'll not even venture there.
Lollar P-Bass 2014
- DC Resistance: 10.73K ohms
- Measured L: 5.799H
- Calculated C: 31pF (41 - 10)
- Gauss: 900G
unloaded: dV: 17.6dB f: 10.3kHz (black)
loaded (200k & 470pF): dV: 4.3dB f: 2.67kHz (red)
This pickup measures almost identical to the Fender '58 Precision Bass in every metric guitarnuts2.proboards.com/thread/7896/fender-vintage-precision-analysis-review
I see a higher flux density with these AlNiCo 5 pole pieces as compared to the Fender, but that's fairly trivial.
