    That will make Duff sound what?

    Seriously, He uses DiMarzio pickups, but there's not much callinng for a "Duff" sound. Any good Fender like sound will do.

    He used Jazz Bass Special's from the 80's, all passive. A modern Aerodyne should do the trick, or anything of the sort, as long as it's passive.

    yah i have a p/j with dimarzios in them and its uncanny how much the sound resembles his (which is what i was also going for). passives with lots of gain/tone turned all the way up. and if you want to go all the way throw on some rotosound strings cuz thats what he uses too.
