I wanted to put a humbucker/MM pickup on my next bass, in the neck or middle position, and a jazz in the bridge position. I have seen a few basses with this combo, but the hum is usually at the bridge and the jazz is in the middle. Which of these would allow me to cover maximum sonic ground (go from heavy rock thickness to bright, and everywhere in between)? What is the difference between a Musicman pickup and a humbucker? Finally, do noiseless jazz pickups sound like regular jazz p/us (I'm talking about Fender's Noiseless)? I want that bright sound, but without the hum, but I've read things that made me believe that Noiseless jazz p/us have more mid-range and are warmer (which I don't want; I want that razor sharp tone that regular jazzes give). So are they the same sound but without hum, or a different beast altogether?
