    i'm in the process of putting together a new bass from parts ordered from Warmoth. it would be a precision/tele style bass with the usual p/j pickup configuration. i was thinking about the choice of the right brand and model of pickups. i love fender 62 jazz pickup and seymour duncan quarte pound p style
    i'm not so sure because i haven't tried a lot of pickups, but considering tha fact that i want a passive bass, fender and SD seem to be the right brand fo me. now i have to choose the right models. what about these configurations?
    p quarter pound spb3
    fender jazz '62 reissue

    p quarter pound spb 3
    j quarter pound SJB-3b( never tried this one)

    and what's the difference in sound between the SD SPB-3 and the single coil version called SCPB-3? which are the differences between the SD Hot and the quarter pound?
