    I'm thinking about putting a p/j set in my new fender aerodyne j-bass. I've heard alot of great things about Bartolini's. I like a nice warm full tone, plenty of mid-range punch, and very little noise. I'm curious what people who use them think?

    Barts are either standard or optional on most boutique basses so that says something (although often custom wound). Pick a set up second hand and try them. If you don't like them, sell them. You won't be out much in the process.

    The only way I know of for you to know, is to try them. From what I've gathered, most players like them - some don't.
