    I recently want to change the pu of my american standard Jazz.
    Mine is ash body with maple fret board.
    The origional one i think its not solid enough,
    and i try my frds one with rosewood fret board with bart J pu, sound is so soild, so i consider to have a change on that.
    But on my friend's bass, the slap sound is not bright enough,
    since hiss bass is the rosewood one.

    do any one here using bart J with maple fret board?
    I want to know how the sound is before i change it~ thanks

    Generally, Bartolini J's has a darker sound, nice lows and mid lows (growl), the highs could be more open up.
    I like the Barts a lot! But get single coil, they have more bite and growl. (9CBJS)
    I think Barts and maple fretboard is very good combination.
