    I'm soon to aquire a very nice MIJ Jazz with maple f-board...and a screwed up neck pickup! Otherwise it's a fine ax. I'm gonna go ahead and replace both pups since I have the cash. The sort of sound I'm going for is the sound like the prog rock guys of the 70's got...Chris Squire, Greg Lake, Geddy Lee, Gary Thain etc. I want for my sound to be extremely clear and cutting. Able to cut through anything. I don't mind excessive treble and twanginess, in fact that's kinda what I'm looking for. Ix12 solid state amp suggestions also welcome. Which is better for me....EMG Jazz or Duncan Quarter Pound Jazz?
