    For the Fenders, I've never heard that they were anything other than the stock Fender pickups that came with the basses....

  3. That's what I always assumed too. Note that I did say assumed.

    I could swear I had seen a Fender custom shop bass on their old site that had the pickups listed as "Jaco Pickups"...
    Anyone remember seeing those? I just checked the new site and couldn't find anything like that...
