    What model Bartolini JBass set would be best for a fretless 4 string? I want a warm sound. Decent output. Passive setup.

    1. 9J#1
    2. 9K#1
    3. 9CBJD

    Thanks___Fritz

    I have 9J's in mine. I dig em. They're probably the warmest of the three models, but probably the lowest output as well.

    I could sacrifice output for tone. Are they roughly the same output as stock Fender or Fralin's?

    That's the thing... you can't just ask the guys at Bartolini. It's a very small operation for the amount of work they do and they don't man the phones.

    My brief, 'nope' was in response to the output question. 9 J's aren't comparable in output to Fenders or Fralins.
