    Can those with knowledge please share?

    What are the general differences tone-wise and other of your most common style of pick ups?

    single coil Jazz type vs Precision type vs soapbar vs humbocker vs piezo etc, etc (those are the ones that come to mind, please feel free to add others)

    I am looking for any kind info, so feel free to be as spcific as you want.

    Take a look at the Pickups FAQ located at the top of this forum.

    There are countless J, P, MM etc. reviews there.

    You should get a pretty good idea how they differ from there.
