    I was just wondering if there is a big difference between the Dimarzio Model J and the Ultra Jazz pickups. From the information on their webpage it appears that the biggest differences are that the Ultra Jazzes have more output and more treble. Also, what do you think would be better for aggressive fingerstyle hard rock and metal?
     
  2. In my experience (and I have tried both) the Model J sounds louder and punchier than the Ultrajazz.

    Well, word on the street (and this is just what I hear, I don't have either) is that the Model J's are the more "vintage" sounding of the two, and the Ultra Jazzes are more "modern". That's what I've gathered from the threads I've read. But don't take my word for it, mosey on up to the "search" function and look around a bit, because I know there's at least ONE thread that is Ultra Jazz vs. Modern J.
