    sorry if i'm duplicating a previous question, but my searches yielded either too little information or way too many threads.

    i've recently read with interest several threads re: replacement pickups for mia jazzes (notably smash's summer showdown - great work!). many of the common replacement pups are available only in four string versions, though. i believe this includes the sd antiquity II and the dimarzio model j, among others.

    the ultra-jazzes are available in a five string configuration, but the dimarzio website says that installation will require modification (carving the wells a bit deeper, i think).

    i'm looking for a set of replacement five string pups that won't require modification to my bass. can folks shout out some recommendations?

    thanks,

    Hi there!

    I am also owner of MIA Jazz V. This fall I replaced the stock pickups with Bartolini´s.

    Check out my thread about it right here!
