so i'm eventually going to put new pickups in my mia jazz (natural/maple). i've been going back and forth on this, have searched, and checked the bp shootout. i play loud/chaotic rock and roll through a mesa 400+ and an svt 8x10 with a pick. i want a strong, balanced tone. i'm really leaning towards the dimarzio model j's. i'm also starting to think about these too: fender cs 60's basslines antiquity II dimarzio ultra jazz i don't want a super hifi/ultra modern tone, but not too muddy either. i don't want to deal with push/pull pots either. can you have them wired specifically one way or the other (series or parallel)? standard is parallel correct? this give alittle more clarity right (with the model j's)? anyway...one thing that worries me about the model j's, is that people say they're so great for fretless, but what about fretted with rock and roll?
