    I think you should. Way more pro's then con's. I think those are the best replacement pickups for a fender jazz, sound better then EMGs for that bass.

    A few years ago, Bass Player did a J pup shootout for 4 string pups. That might be a good place to look too.

    What don't you like about the pups that are in your Jazz now? Once you have an idea of the tone that you're looking for, selecting replacements should be a lot easier...and we'll know whether our selection might work for you if we have/had similar tonal goals.
