I'm looking for a humcancelling pup to use in my Jazz project. I've pretty much narrowed my pup search to four models: the Bill Lawrence J45, the Seymour Duncan Classic Stack and the two humbucking Nordstrands- the NJ4SV and SE. I scratched the Dimarzio Model Js because for all the hype, they sound more like humcancelling pups than single coils by a loooong shot. Great, but not for this bass. I've made a concerted effort to finish this project (unlike so many other basses that I started to mod and never did), so I made all the expensive or vanity purchases first, leaving the pickups for last because I knew I wouldn't scrimp on those. Everything is here but the pups, pots and pickguard. What I want is a quiet pup with a modern, growly, single-coil(ish) tone to use with passive electronics. The bass will be used for straightahead jazz, but with no intention of imitating an upright or "vintage" sound. Rounds, a lot of bridge pup, and a bit of neck. Which should I choose? I'm also open to hearing about Aero, Suhr, and any other pup you all think might fit the job.
