    I put Nordstrand NJ4's in a nice MIM Jazz, and it hugely changed the sound from stock pups. Thicker and deeper, also more clear. It didn't just change the sound, it changed the way I look at that instrument -- with more respect. And I found more uses for that bass. Didn't vote bcs I've never used the Fralins.

    I have the Custom Shops in my MIM Jazz and it has that rippin Geddy tone more than my Geddy Jazz does! When you roll off the tone I gets silky smooth as well.

    I just ordered Nordies to replace my Fralin SCs in my Cote. I'll let you know later.

    The stock geddy pickups are actually really nice, I though duncan antiquity IIs were an improvement, but not a huge one.

    I'd try the nordstrands, everybody seems to love those ... but which ones? Single coil, hum canceling ... lots of options. What kind of tone are you looking for?
