Those are typically obtained by purchasing a used GK-3

Occasionally the divided pickup only is sold without the electronics , ive done that and got one for $50 five years ago

Then disassemble the pickup to obtain the single string coil pickup you need

Heres one for $129

I do not have (or stock) individual components of the GK3 pickup.

I manufacture after-market replacements for the 13-pin jack in the guitar and certain Roland/Boss synth units like the GR-55 and the GP-10.

The only way you can source the parts you are looking for is to buy second hand GK3 pickups and dismantle them yourself....as 'Elantric' has advised you now, a number of times.

Peter

The big deal about the official Roland Gk13 pin jack below is the large chrome area just behind the front face of the jack - this grips the large circular Ground connection on the DIN 13 plug and makes a good ground connection that is often lacking on other DIN 13 jacks

With all respect to the fine people at fullcompass.com, the "large chrome area just behind the front face of the jack" does NOT grip the outer shell of the inserted 13-pin jackplug....ALL it does is provide strengthening to the two plastic mounting 'ears' of the jack, and some iterations, provide a metal surface that presents itself to the locking pawl of the jackplug.

As such, yes, it DOES provide a path for the Ground circuit, but it does nothing to prevent radial movement occurring to the inserted jackplug when it is subjected to sideways stresses during operation....the 'official' Roland /Boss jack has the same width of the circular slot in the plastic moulding to accept the outer shell of the jackplug as most other 13-pin plastic jacks.

It is this movement during use that causes the plastic jack to malfunction in time due to the consequential wear that takes place, when the only resistance to all this movement is the fit between the 13 female contacts in the jack and the 13 male pins in the jackplug.

The metal-body design of Synth-Linx Jacks gives 5 points of constant contact between the inner face of the jack's body and the outer shell of the jackplug itself.

Not only does this maintain excellent reliability in the Ground circuit itself, this design holds the inserted 13-pin jackplug firmly in place during use, and markedly reduces wear in the female contacts in the jack and the male pins in the jackplug.

Almost 11 years on from releasing Synth-Linx products on this Forum, these jacks are still being produced and have had excellent reviews from many users around the World during that time. 

Not really trying to bang a drum here, just finally attempting to set the record straight on this after gritting my teeth for many years on the published inaccuracy.

Peace...with all things 13-pin.. ;)

Cheers,
Peter
