    Killing time in my local GC (my favorite local place just shut down. :( ) I happened to pick up a Fender Modern Player Jazz. And to my surprise I kinda fell in love with the tone I was getting. I really enjoyed those humbucking pickups.

    To cut to the chase, what is the difference between the H pickups in the Modern Player Jazz and the Blacktop Precision?

    I checked out the Fender website and they just label the pickups as "Modern Player Jazz" and "Blacktop Humbucking."

    What's the deal?

    I believe they're the same, but one is made in China and the other in Mexico.
