Oddly phrased, I know. But I don't know what to call pickups in the stock jazz basses before the switch to the CS 60s. At any rate, I'm in the market for a new (or used?) jazz bass and the 2012 model with the CS 60s in it I tried was fairly dull-sounding. It was quite dead-sounding really. Either it was a setup issue (you know how GC is!), or the new CS 60s pup's are weak sauce compared to what Fender was formerly using. Has anyone here compared the newer CS 60s equipped jazz with the older style ones?
