Anyhow, these are really different sounding pickups. The 60s are warm and articulate while the QPs will have more extended lows and highs with slightly reduced mid range.
It might be best for you to determine what sound your looking for? Then we can help you track down some candidates.
I'm looking for a warm sound that's articulate when playing with my fingers but can really "bite" when I open the tone pot up a bit (that "bite" is especially important when I'm playing with a pick). I'd also like for them to sound really good when solo'd on just the neck or bridge, which I don't think the stock Jaguar pups do.
I mostly play indie/alternative rock, classic rock, worship music, acoustic tunes, and some jazz. Hope this helped a little bit!
