    I have no idea which pick-up to get. I will be using it in a Essex J. Please help me out, I would like know what they sound like and how reliable they are.

    I have a pair of Dimarzio ultra jazz in my MIM fender and I think they lack low end comparing to the bartolini 9s I had before. I changed because I wanted a humbucker, but I think I`ll go back to barts...

    I guess Duncans 1/4 pounders (based on what I have read on various reviews) will have more low end than Ultra Jazz.

    Well, low end isn't my main priority...I'm mostly into treble. I play emo-punk...so it's not like great low-end is a must.

    Aw, Chuck, say it ain't so--I just ordered four guitar PUs from Bill and Becky about 10 days ago!:bawl:

    Now that I think of it, the guitar PUs I got from them last year probably took about 6 weeks, from soup to nuts. But yeah, they were worth it.

    If you want a pickup that cuts through nicely in highs and high-mids to play with loud bands so Ultra Jazz is one of the best options you have!
