    I've got my eye on a 2002 MIMJ. This thing plays great, very nice neck.
    I'm concerned about the "upgraded" pickups though. what's the scoop on them?
    My '96 MIMJ had some really noisy original pickups that I hated and don't want to have to replace the pickups right away because of some ungodly buzzing.

    Anyone have some insight?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    The "upgraded" pickups are the one's they use in the MIA One's, i belive. so nothing bad there. also they got the right pickup length at the bridge, so it's all clean and nice. I think there's always gonna be some noise when you solo a pickup, but i think thats on all jazz basses.
