    I want to replace my MM-J pickup.
    Now I consider Nordy or SD's MM-J.
    I play metal and hard rock song.
    Which is better?

    BTW, what's different between Nordy MM5.2 and MM5.3.
    If I go Nordy,which should I get?

    The 5.3 has a dummy coil underneath just like the 4.3 does for switching on some EBMM basses. I don't think it's available anymore from Nordstrand.
