    Hey guys,
    I have a 5-string MIM Fender Jazz Bass, but I really want to upgrade the pickups to make it sound (a lot) better. I'm really looking for a Geddy Lee type sound.

    Anybody know which pickups would be best to get this kind of sound? I'll be playing through an Ampeg BA115.

    Thanks!

    Step-up jazz 5 str Singles active Or Bartolini Mk II system... You can make them sound like just about anything. Call Geddy and see how he does it. I'm guessing an effects chain from hell.

    Thanks for the input. I was looking at Seymour Duncan SJ5s 67/70 Passive pickups, but do you think they'll give me the sound I'm looking for?
