J Bass Pickups, looking for clear sound?
Squier VM Jazz. Added black vintage stlye knobs, black control plate, a black Gotoh 201 Bridge, and I'll have some black Hipshot HB7s in soon, as well as some DR Black Beauties. I've got what I want aesthetically, but the sound isn't quite what I want. I'm looking for some J Bass pickups that will drop right in without any hassle, with a clear sound.

Nordys are awesome, but if you are into a more vintage type tone I would recommend David Allen Pickups. I'll put them up against anything. He only makes one set, but they are a great set.

The PUs that get most frequently recommended on average (if you distilled the last 100 PU posts) are (IMHO, AFAIK etc etc):
Seymour Duncan - Antiquity II
Fender Custom Shop '60s
There are over 200 manufacturers of PUs. Everyone has a different opinion. I'm currently looking at 3 UK suppliers that you won't have heard of!

An old tried and true standby - Di Marzio Model Js with adjustable black pole pieces.

No need to spend for boutique pickups if you want clear, basic J-bass tone. Try Duncan SJB-1 if you want single coils, or DiMarzio Area J to go noiseless. They're safe bets and easy to find.

I replaced my J basses with the Duncan STK-J2's and have been VERY happy with them. I tried alot of others and those were what I settled on....IT just comes down to your taste...You will hear a lot of opinions here for sure.
ANY quality brand pickups will do fine. Just check out their specs to see if they are what you want.
I wanted a clear clean and punchy sound without and hum and that's why I chose the Duncans STK's
