    Pros - Totally noiseless, great sound, consistent quality, even tone across all strings and frets.
    Cons - A bit pricey, customer service can suck
    Got a good deal on these pickups and tried them in my modulus, fantastic tone, super quiet. Won't be looking any further for my jazz tone.

    Pros - Noiseless, great tone, top notch build quality
    Cons - lead time on ordering if not in stock
    These pickups live up to the hype. Meaty, thick tone. Solo the neck and you don't get hum, but you get a very throaty P type of tone that makes me wonder why we don't see basses built with just a neck J style pickup. It's always a single J in the bridge to get your Jaco on. The soloed neck J pickup doesn't get the love it should.

    If not in stock, the lead time can take awhile for you to get your pickups, but you'll be happy you waited.
