    I've been searching for a new set of pickups to put in my Lakland Joe Osborne (with Hanson pickups), it always sounded too "scooped" in the mix for my taste. While searching numerous threads and videos for different "vintage" jazz bass pickups, I stumbled across this video on a Master built Custom Shop Jazz Bass:

    The tone sounds significantly less scooped (more even) to my ears. Unfortunately, I can't use these exact set of Custom Shop pups because these were specifically hand wound for this bass. Any idea's what pickups I could drop in my JO to get in the ballpark of this tone?

    I have a set of the Fender custom shop 60's J pickups, I put them in an AV62 Jazz Bass. I liked the originals but there's something really great about the CS P-ups, to me they sound more like what a classic Jazz should sound like. They are a lot like the ones in the Master built in the Vid.
