    Hey what do you guys think would make a good set of jazz pickups?? Perhaps around $250?

    $250 will cover just about anything out here...what sound do you seek?

    I want kinda a hard/punk sound...like blink182 or godsmack
  4. Dimarzio DP123, my favorites. A lot of folks like the DP149's for a more trebly sound, though.
