    I recently bought a new MIM Standard Jazz and I want to try out different pickups. I've been looking at SD Quarter Pounders and Hot Jazz and I'm wondering what everyone would recommend, or if you have other recommendations (for under $150 for the set) I'd love to hear them! I mostly play classic rock, with a little modern rock and pop.

    I use Fender Noiseless Jazz pups. I find they are voiced really close to the stock single coils so the bass keeps sounding like itself.

    For a MIM Jazz, I would probably go Dimarzio. DP249 Area J for vintage, DP123 Model J for a little fatter and aggressive Rock tone, or DP149 Ultra Jazz for a little more modern tone. And, they’re all hum-canceling.

    As in a hum canceling set or stacks?

    Each pickup is a side by side split coil, not stacked. I like the dimarzio as well. I’m sure there are many J extensive J pickups threads as everyone has their favourites.

    Each pickup is hum-canceling individually.
