    Hi folks

    Got me one of those fender jazz with the S1 switch. Does the presence of the S1 switch make it difficult fitting new pickups and a j-retro i.e. can this be done or are there any important factors to bear in mind when fitting pickups and the jretro?

    Can anyone also recommend some slamming J pickups through personal experience at all?

    No personal experience with either but have read numerous posts mentioning the S1 switch and Retro's. A search should yield plenty of info tho it may not be exactly what you're looking for. Smash has experience with Fenders and Retro's so he would probably know, you might PM him if a search produces nothing.

    Pups is a personal prefernce thing in combination with a myriad of variables from acoustic's of the bass to rigging. There's been tons of feedback on J's - again a search. Dimarzio Model J's/Ultra Jazz, Nord NJ4's, SD Antiquity II's - all in current vogue.
