I do have a question about pickups though. Has anyone tried the Dimarzio ultra jazz pickups with the passive/active Fender deluxe controls?. I would really like to hear from someone who has done this, or better yet, sound clips I went ahead and ordered a, brand new, loaded control plate for a US Fender Standard Deluxe. So money is spent, that is the controls that will be in my project/junk pile bass. I have the dimarzio pups in a box (somewhere), but it will really going to bug me to get everything set up, and not like the tone. I am arguing with myself over ordering new pups as well.
