Best J's for slap

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by bryan bailey, Aug 1, 2003.


  1. Best pickups, and preamp for a sweet slap sound, and smooth fingerstyle. Any suggestions?

    I've always heard that the Aguilar OBP-3 is liked by slappers, but I don't have any experience with it.

    I'm not a slapper, but the DiMarzio Ultra Jazz pickups (which I have tried) are nice and bright and crisp with good punch. I think they'd be perfect, especially if preamped. A great value too. They can be found for $89 new.

    My '75 Jazz has Fender Custom Shop '60s pups and a J-Retro..perfect for anything.

    Custom Shop 60's do sound great. I have those in a bass too.
