Dimarzio Ultra Jazz Question

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by BassBoyLeroy, Jun 29, 2003.

  1. I have an MIM Jazz Deluxe, with active pickups and onboard eq. Would I be able to swap out the bridge pickup (a la Timmy C.) for a Dimarzio Ultra jazz, without switching the neck pickup? I'm intrigued....

    Probably...why do you think that you couldn't?

    You'll want to mess around with phasing. When I replaced the P pup in my Am HR P with a DiMarzio Will Power Middle, I had to connect it out of phase (compared to DiMarzio's installation instructions) to have it in phase with the Am Hot Vintage J pup at the bridge.

    I recently saw a MIM J Deluxe 4 at Sam Ash that had the expected middle pickup but a noiseless at the bridge...do they make 'em that way (this was a new bass)?
