    The title says it all. Anyone have experience with both of these jazz pickups that could share some thoughts on how they compare?

    I have experience with the Aero but not the Nordstrand. Aero is fat with complex midrange. It's my favorite. Seems to work in any setting.

    Yeah, that fits my experience (on a Lakland DJ4) with the Aeros too. Big lows with some nice grind and a round top end with good treble extension. To me they seem to have an agressiveness that I think works best for rock.

    Has anyone tried the Nordstrands and compared the two?

    The Nord 70s have less low mids with a higher treble extension. I found them lacking character compared to the Aeros. Although they do a nice slap tone, just not my thing.

    Interesting.

    Obviously the 70's wind is under wound (a little compared to the normal NJ4's, probably even more compared to the Aeros) so they have less midrange complexity but are more clear I'd suppose.

    How were the lows on the Nords?
