    Hey Guys...there must be someone out there who has tried this, is the size and routing of J-45 bridge PU compatible with the SX SJB-62 5-String Fretless Bass? Do you get that famous Jaco sound from this PU? Thanks!

    I love Lawrence pickups. Thats why i own a Fender RB4 and RB5 (he designed those pickups). Im about to sell my pair of J45's if you should wish to buy em. They were in a Warwick and were much more clear. I would describe them as being hi-fi but with more of an edge. Sound great with passive mode as well as with a preamp (my Warwick had that pull switch). I cant answer the routing question, but i can tell you their size if u need it
