Hey Everyone, Just wanted to write up a little mini review of the Fender Custom Shop 60s Jazz pickups! I have what was originally a Geddy Lee Jazz... which Isn't really a Geddy anymore. I changed out the neck for an American P neck and put on a black pickguard. I really liked the Geddy as a platform for my 'dream' J bass because of the pickup spacing and the BA bridge. I really enjoyed the tone of the pickups that came in the bass... and most people commented how well my bass sounded. But, they're pretty low output and I wasn't getting the volume I needed out of the bass... and I'm pretty fickle when it comes to tone, so I thought I'd try something else. I popped these CS pickups in yesterday and went to band practice to try them out. I'm am SOOOOOOOO impressed by the sound of these pickups. They are probably what I would refer to as 'tastefully hot.' The low end is so smooth and warm, without booming out. The high end is high and smooth. The mids are just amazing; punch, punch, punch... even out of my 15" combo. The volume is perfectly level across all of the strings. The weird part... it's like my bass is physically easier to play now. I'd probably attribute that to the fact that I have more output and I don't have to push it to make the sound I want. It's very comforting. This bass along with my 15" scout combo are all I'll ever need. ...for now. I'll probably record our next show... which I think is the 30th... and post a recording or two here so you guys can hear them.
