    I was tinkering with what pickup to add to my jazz. As I want some different sounds every once and a while.

    On ebay I found some Mr Elliot Mosrite remakes. They look nice. I wondered if anyone have tried it?

    The one problem I can foresee you having is string spacing. Mosrites were known for having pretty tight string spacing, so you may want to get the polepiece spacing first just to make sure they'll work on a Jazz.

    EDIT: Looked it up. String spacing is off pretty badly. Wouldn't do it if it were me.
