    Please forgive this post if this a rehash, but I'm really nervous about this. I have my 75 jazz bass, which is my baby, that I need new pickups for. 20 years ago I put Dimarzios' in it. I have to get new ones now and I'm not sure which way to go. I put bassines in my P-bass and I'm happy with those, But I really don't want to take any chances.
     
  2. Well what sort of tone are you after? For pickups with a lot of punch and low end, but still retaining clarity, go with the SD Hot Jazz pickups. I have them. That's all I know.

    I have DiMarzio Ultra Jazz p/u's in my MIM Jazz and it greatly improved the tone! They're actually stacked humbuckers designed to emulate the vintage tone.
