    I bought these from Dex a couple of weeks ago.

    (see here: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=526334)

    I was going to put them into one of my Jazz basses.

    I've since changed my mind.

    They are new and virtually unused.

    I'll sell them for what I paid for them.

    $90.00 shipped PayPal.

    I'll put up pics later...

    when you say "perfect for slapping" what does that entail, really? I slap, but not that much. I'm primarily a fingerstyle player. Since you never used them personally, not sure if I can ask (or if anyone else knows) What is their tonal output? How do they agree with a passive system?
    I'm looking for a set of J V pups for either my fretted or fretless. I'd like them to be clear and articulate, not muddy. I have a set of SD 67/70's that I'm quite happy with, they satisfy the criteria. Lot's of midrange, they scream Jaco when the Bridge pup is solo'ed
    I also have a set of Affinity Jazz V pups. Though they have a pretty flat tone curve, they aren't clear enough (for me)
    How would these Marcus Pups compare?

    Marcus Miller said the tone is that of his 77 jazz bass.

    Having had a 4 string MM, I can tell you it's a great bass for finger style.

    My MM I played in passive mode almost all the time, because passive sounded better to me.

    Hopefully that helps...
