    A MIM or MIJ fretless jazz bass. For the money that you would spend on a quality set of pickups (or even a middle-of-the-road set), you would probably be better off saving a bit and investing in a MIM or MIJ fretless jazz.

    JPJ rocks. :smug:
  3. but those wouldn't have a JPJ configeration. thats what i am looking for and my bass sounds really good and plays really good. so i don't need a new one
