I need J Bass pick-ups that cut

    I am looking to replace the stock pick-ups on my 2002 MIM Jazz. I want something with a lot of growly mids to articulate the notes in the mix. I read the old Bass Player shoot-out that said the Dimarzio J pick-ups have a tone that cuts through. Basically, I want something pretty close to the sound of my Warwick Thumb BO 5, but in a lighter, 4-string package. Suggestions?

    A Warwick BO-4 is what you need. I like the Dimarzio Ultra-J pups. I picked up a set this weekend. Now all I need is a bass to put them in. :D
