    Will these pickups work as drop in replacements for the Fender Deluxe series Jazz basses with the active electronics?

    assuming the current pickups are passive, I have no reason to believe otherwise, yes

    You'll love 'em once ya get them in!! I agree with davidmwilson that they should just drop in since I have mine mated to a Bart NTBT preamp in my Warwick. Just be sure to get everything properly grounded. Although there are 4 wires coming out of each pup, just follow the directions and you should be fine.

    Something else to be aware of....the DiMarzio Model J pickups are quite a bit deeper than the stock pickups. When I replaced mine I also had to replace the pickup foam to get them in the cavities far enough. I play with pretty low action though, so this may not be a n issue for you.
