    Anyone ever use the passive gezzer pj pickups? Do the sound mid scoop?

    Ordered a set for mine! Thanks for the recommendation. I am shielding the cavities as well.

    Yeah. The Dimarzios really cleared up the noise right away. They also gave the bass a more even solid sound.

    Iplayed my lakland and mustang back to back and the stock pickups in the fender are pretty unimpressive!

    Plays fantastic I am going to Keep it despite it's flaws.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I contacted their customer service department (who were great to deal with) and saved a couple dollars.

    LOL, don't look. I love the way the bass plays. I'm not going to risk getting another and have it not be as nice.

    Worth every bit of that price to me.

    not from this thread and not from adorama, but my mustang is pristine with no finish issues at all.

    I was thinking of a 61 fender stacked vol(tone) knob for each pickup but not sure how that would work

    Output seems better, balance when both pickups blended and the overall sound is way tighter and articulate. Seems to have a better growl and dead quiet. Good p sound as well as jazz nasal but deeper tone. The bridge is a side by side that's maybe why

    LOL, probably just louder. That's what everyone likes when they replace pickups.

    The originals sound under wound and muddy. These are pretty clear and better magnets!

    "Better magnets", whether intentional or not, that's hilarious.

    View attachment 2960687 So, I caved and bought one too. I barely had time to unbox it tonight before dad duties took over (volleyball practice). My excitement quickly turned to disappointment when I saw that the fender box (the box inside the box) looked like it tumbled down a mountain. Yep...I've got knicks & chipped paint.

    I'll call/email them ASAP.
