    Trying to reduce the hum on my '89 MIJ Jazz. Read around this forum and found a lot of good vibes about the DP123, but nothing on the Fenders. Does anyone have any experience with them. The $40 difference does not scare me, I just want to make an informed choice. Also, as this will be my first time replacing pups (although I do know my way around a soldering iron), is one set harder to wire than the other.

    The dimarzios are probably a bit hotter/louder, but with a touch less sheen on the top end.
