    Hello,

    I have a couple CIJ Jaguar basses and while I am primarily a P player, these basses get a lot of action based upon the way they feel, their weight, the way they fit in my hands, their tone, and the way that they look. One thing I've noticed is that the A and D strings are never as loud as the E and G strings. I am looking for some pickups that will be an effortless replacement and work seamlessly with the stock active/ passive electronics. Aside from a Jazz Deluxe I had (briefly) nearly 20 years ago, I am fairly new to the J side of things. I know they will never sound like a P, and that's okay, but equal volume across the strings and tones suited for modern rock are my goal. Looking for an easy install and something around 200 bucks (even if just for the neck pup).

    Perhaps there are other CIJ Jag players who have done the same?
