Noiseless J for a Jaguar

    Hey all. I have a Fender American Standard Jaguar bass. I'm a Precision guy so I'm totally happy with the P pickup in this bass. But I'm not into the J pickup at all. I usually play through at least a little dirt, and the hum from the J is just not working for me.

    So, with that in mind: What sort of noiseless J pickup would you put in this guy? I'd be cool if it was voiced like a P pickup, if that's even possible. This bass also has a series/parallel switch that affects the P and J pickups, so I'm not sure if that's a consideration. Also, looking to keep the price under $100. Thanks for your thoughts!

    Maybe DiMarzio Model J? Ive heard it can sounds like a P, though differences are more pronounced in bridge locations, so who knows... either way, I think you want a split coil J, it’s imo your best bet. As to what will sound good, who knows...
