    I am pretty new to the bass world, only been playing for a little over a year and when I first started playing I purchased a fender jaguar. I love this bass with all my heart. It is everything I could want and more, but lately I have had a few things I feel the need to change but I need some opinions.

    Im just positing my first question right now because I don't have a lot of time:

    Although I like the pick ups that came stock in my jag I can't help but feel like there is something better out there. I usually try to go for a more vintage 70s sound. But I also like to be versatile on account of I play with many different bands.

    So if you guys could post links to pickups that would be worth a shot that would be very highly appreciated.

    Is yours the original ('06-'09) Fender Jaguar bass with all eight knobs and switches or the Modern Player one that has simpler setups?

    I guess its not everything. :)

    What do you call a 70s Jazz bass sound? Can you name a few songs? I only mention this since most of the recordings in the 70s were done with P basses. Because more people use Jazz basses these days, a lot of young players think that's what they are hearing on the recordings.

    It's an 09 so it had all the bells and whistles.

    Well if I had all the money in the world I would buy a 1970 fretless P bass. If I'm not mistaken that's what John Paul Jones used when they recorded Bron-y-aur stomp.
