    Hello guys,

    i just recently joined this forum, because i have a question regarding a certain tone i got in my head.
    here is the problem:

    since i got my lakland jo4 my squier vm 70s jazz is not played anymore due to some obvious reasons. anyway i want to change this, because i still like the feel of the instrument and therefore want to change its tonal abilities.

    im thinking of buying new pickups that provide me a typical jaco-growl, mid-frequency oriented sound.
    do you guys think that fender's CS 60s jazz pups would do the job or do you have other advice for me.

    thanks for your help! :bassist:

    I'd look into getting some Aero's.

    You can most definitely get the Jaco mids from those pickups, I do so on a daily basis. Solo the bridge pup, play over it, and boost 500hz.
  6. i just put a sd sjb-3 quarterpounder bridge pup in my jazz and it sounds just like what your saying. my bass already had a similar tone, but the sd made it alot clearer and deeper while still emphasizing that mid-growl. i posted a sound clip in this section. -joep

    not sure they are the tone you are looking for, but I really dig the stuff from www.delano.de

    They have a very wide frequency response and are very sensitive (pick up everything).

    Here are some youtubes of their jazz pickups

    Pete Biltoft at www.vintagevibeguitars.com can totally help you out. He's great at taking your descriptions of what you want, and translating that into a pickup wind.

    Custom winds, reasonably priced, and he's a great guy to deal with.
