Will I see an improvement if I install a set of GFS Jazz pickups in my MIM Fender Standard Jass.
Sincerely? Not likely.
Might get a different sound, but in terms of quality, no, not an improvement.
Well, its very much impossible to make a blanket statement about whether a pickup sounds better than another pickup. Tone isn't like volume, it's quality can't be measured, it's all subjecive. What type of sound are you looking for?
Although I can't speak for their bass pickups, I have some of their vintage-style single coils in my Strat and I love the tone. No they aren't Seymour Duncans or something more boutique-y, but IMO they can be a good upgrade IF they are the sound you're looking for.
Well this bass is going to be used mostly for praise and worship music.
I'm not a praiser or a worshiper, but I'd imagine there are many bass tones in use in the genre. What do you wish your pickups were "more" of? I wish my pickups were more ________.
I put GFS Jazz pickups in a Jazz I built up. They sound, fine i guess, but not magic.
The pickups would probably improve the sound of the bass somewhat. It probably won't be stunningly huge, but it might be noticeable. At around $60 for the set, its not that huge an investment.
