    Pros
    • + More powerful than stock Js
    Cons
    • - Doesnt do traditional Mwah, but it's own type is food
    If you are looking for a traditional J sound, don't look here. These pickups are thicker sounding, but no less expressive (to me a good thing). I've used the bridge pickup forever in a variety of P deluxe type basses, and as in the title, it works really well for that, particularly as it is more powerful than the traditional single coil (balances better). Only recently did I install a full set into a fretless J and was impressed with how heavy the neck pickup sounds by itself. Allows the full Jamerson grind if you lay into it, yet it can blend to add just a little bottom to the bridge p'up for a thickened type of mwah.

    Dimarzio Model Js are my favorite aftermarket J pickup. They have a flexible tone profile and offer good midrange response. They are definitely not a scooped-mid pickup. Good overall output is welcome, as is the affordable price. My only disappointment with these pickups is that they are not available for 5-string bass.

    Pros
    • + loud, humbucking
    Cons
    • - Unusual sound
    These Jazz Bass replacement pickups are humbuckers that feature two coils side by side, similar to a split P bass pickup. They are loud and powerful with a different tone than single coils. Not a bad sound, but not what you'd expect from a typical Jazz bass.
