I've got a 2001 Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass with the 9v stock preamp and the vintage noiseless pickups. I'm not crazy about the tone I get - I mainly use a pick and I find the sound to be very "clicky" and snappy. What would you all suggest? 1) Change pickups, but leave the preamp 2) Change the preamp, but keep the pickups 3) Change both 4) Other (please specify) I probably should elaborate on the tone I like. I have a MIM passive Jazz with SD 1/4 pounders in it and I LOVE the tone on that bass. I like it big and ballsy. I know, why not just put QP's into the Deluxe too, but I don't want two identical sounding basses - know what I mean?
