hey guys, I'm a guitarist who is buying a bass in the near future, but before i drop a grand I figured that I better get some advice first. I'm planning on buying a Fender Highway Jazz Bass and replacing the pickups with Bartolinis. I have two fender guitars and the difference in craftsmanship is huge between my american and my MIM, however i dont want to spend the extra 400 to get a bonafide american jazz bass, especially since im replacing the pickups. Good idea or no? I was about to buy the bartolini's, and the site has two different choices, it says "The 9CBJD1 are hum cancelling Dual Coil Pickups - Deep Tone The 9CBJD3 are hum cancelling Dual Coil Pickups - Bright Tone." Which set do you guys recommend? My favorite players are Victor Wooten, Marcus Miller and John Myung. I don't want the tone too deep or too bright, so I'll just go with the ones you all recommend. Lastly, I'll have 300-400 dollars for an amp. That pretty much confines me to combo amps, so which is the absolute best? I love the ampegs that i've played through, but again, I am ignorant in the ways of the bass. Thanks for any advice... and Wooten rocks my face.
