    1. DiMarzio (both Model J and UltraJazz)
    2. Bartolini 9J-1's... and probably others Barts, as well

    Note: These have the P-pickup feature of having 2 separate coils contained within a single case (one coil for the E and A strings, the second coil for the D and G strings, for a 4-string), but the aperture (width) of the pickup is still narrower than a P-pickup, so of course it will sound diferent.

    FWIW, I've got the UltraJazz in my early 70's Jazz bass and they sound fantastic. A friend has the Barts in his Jazz bass and they also sound very good.

    Like mgmadian said, the split-coil construction type is like a Precision, but none of these will sound anything at all like a Precision. You'll have two narrow, tall coils vs. a Precision's two wide, short coils. Plus each Precision coil is capable of accepting more windings than a split-coil J-type.
