    Hi there, I'm looking for humbucker (no stack) in SINGLE jazz pup to install it in bridge position. Wanna get kinda stingray sounds from my jazz, but don't wanna buy stingray or install full MM pickup to my old jazz.
    Does anybody makes this kind of pickup, where coils are parallel, (not a stack humbucker like DiMarzio Model J) ?
    Can I buy DiMarzio hotrail for strat and reassemble it to fit my jazz pup cover?
    This is what i mean

    Um, the Model J is not stacked. It's exactly what you want. Tonewise, of course, you will have to decide.

    The Dimarzio Model J is a split coil pickup, kinda like a P pickup where one coil picks up only one pair of strings. OP wants something that's like a standard humbucker coil configuration in jazz size.

    Sninja, you probably won't get too much in the way of Stingray type sounds with that setup, general consensus seems to be that a lot of that tone comes from the position of the pickup, and I'm pretty sure the big fat humbucker has something to do with it too. That said, a humbucker in the bridge position of your jazz will definitely give you a bit more beef to your sound

    Delano has the awesome-looking JMVC 4 FE/M2 - always wanted to try one!

    Those Delano's are split coils just like the DiMarzio's.

    Those SGD Jazzbuckers are what I would go with. They are outstanding. Order them from Best Bass Gear, and only if they have them in stock.
