    Before I can help....a few questions:

    What kind of sound are you looking for?

    What do you like or dislike about the current pickups?

    How old is your JO5?

    any idea she pickups or has now?
     
  3. well, it is 2012 and has hanson pickups.
    i am looking for a vintage sound, also i would love to have a punchy and warm sounding bass. i love the sound of marcus miller's bass.

    ive read that nordstrands, fralins and delanos are good sounding pickups...

    THANKS BASS PRAISER IN ADVANCE!!


    SPECS: ash body / maple on maple

    OK....makes sense...

    Have you thought about the Hanson vintage pickups?

    Email JP@lakland.com and he should be able to fill you in....

    I have the vintage P and vintage J in my latest and love the sound....

    Or as Munji says...fralins are a good choice.

    Good luck!
