Any big difference between Delano and SGD?

    Looking at Twin-J and P. Can't find many Youtube clips. Both are highly praised on TB. Anyone done an a/b and detect much of a difference in voice? Price seems to be the biggest difference at this point.

    I have pickups from both (not Twin Jazz though) and both are superb.

    I see it like this. If you need the pickups today, Delano is your only shot. If you can wait 1 or two months, SGD will not disappoint.

    That's no good.....that might put them out of the running. I wonder if anyone ever put a twin jazz in the neck position?

    I have TJ in my Warwick Dolphin, but they are MEC and active. I have a P/J, J/MM, and a J/TJ. I personally prefer the J/MM config, but they all have their uses. I use the P/J more like a P, with some color from the J. The J/MM is hot and aggressive, very flexible. My J/TJ is a bit too polite for what I normally play, but honestly I mostly use the TJ in the single coil mode so I use it more like a Jazz bass config.
    Sorry no sound clips.

    Sorry about that. I'm unusually behind with orders due to my move in May. I'm finishing yours up right now (along with newer orders).

    Can't go wrong with either one. I ultimately went with Delano JMVC 4 FE/M2 for my jazz bass.
    SGD to me sounds like a modern take on a vintage tone.
    Delano is a modern take on modern tone. Huge punch-you-in-the-face sound. Sounds just like the big ferrite pole pieces look. Big, round, attention grabbing.
    Works for me.
