    Hey guys,

    Fender or Maruszczyk?
    More customization options for an acceptable price with the Maruszczyk, but does it sound as good as a Fender Jazz?
    Thanks in advance! maruszczyk natural.jpg fender jazz professional.jpg

    I own a US Fender P and an Elwood 4a (also a bunch of warwicks, fwiw)
    I would hands down take a Maruszczyk. They are an incredible bargain for how much bass you get, and the parts, electronics and fretwork are all top notch.
    Mine has Delano pickups and Glockenklang electronics, action can go super low, and there are no dead spots.
    hope that helps, shoot me a message if you have any questions.

    I like going passive a little more I guess, what are the best pickups i can choose for a nice growl?

    Not too sure, I have SD basslines passives in my streamer jazzman, but I'm sure that if your flooked up threads for best passive pups there'll be a lot of info.
    I would personally get Aguilar's. Duncan's are great, so are EMG, and I like the Nordy's on my pbass, but not everyone's a fan.
