    I have seen very few thread mentioning these pickups. I was thinking about putting them in an SX fretless bass. For the price how do they sound? Would it sound good for jazz-ish stuff?

    I had them in a bass, I had custom built but didn't have the money at the time to do my usual EMG J/Preamp thing, but wanted to get the bass finished so I bought a set and had the builder install them...they were good...better than stock Mexi fender I thought...Not as nice as Nordstrands or Dimarzio's I have tried, and they certainlly didn't get that really "vintagey" jazz bass tone, but they were focused and had decent output, clarity and and some guts...and again keep in mind I am a die hard active pickup fan, unless its my 66 jazz...its the only one I own that isn't hotrodded with actives...so I would tend to be very critical of a passive pickup in general...but for $30 how can you lose?? way better than the stock SX pickups...(which other than not having much output I didn't think sounded to bad either)
