I've been checking out DiMarzio (DP 149), EMG (JHZ) and Fenders (both straight replacements and vintage sets). I was wondering if anyone had any input, advice, opinions about a good brand to use? I don't really play out at ll, mostly just at home for my own enjoyment and on occasion I play with a guitarist friend of mine but nothing too serious. FWIW I prefer to use flats on my J bass, if that helps. Edit: and I'd like to keep things passive.
