    I say pickups, she says get 'em! Now I gotta decide what to get. These will replace the stock pickups in my Brice 5 string J copy. Both pickups are 3.73 "(near as I can tell.) I need them to be passive, have clean highs, and nice fat,clean low end. What do you recommend? Can I have it all in one pickup set?

    If price is no object, go for the Nordstrand 5 string jazz set.

    DiMarzio ultrajazz pickups would be a good choice too IMHO.
    You can wire those to push pull volume pots, and have a series/Parallel option. This will increase your tonal options considerably, for not too much money. The diagram is available from DiMarzio-send tem an email.
    The best deal on DiMarzio's and push pull pots is Brian at www.bestbassgear.com. He hooked me right up with my DiMarzio's.
