    I will be doing a custom jazz bass build. I tend to run the volume of my bridge pickup wide open and not my neck pickup. Should I be attracted to a 70s body where the bridge pickup is closer to the bridge? Which do you prefer, and why?

    I prefer the 60s. I like the tone of where the pickup is on those.

    Depends on what you want. I have and use both, 70s spacing is a little more aggressive with more bite and the 60s placement is still snarly, but a bit warmer.
