    Just wondered if anyone might know...

    Does the Quarter Pounder SDJB-3 have a higher output than the Hot for bass single coil SDJB-2? Or are they about the same?

    They are both advertised as 'hot output' on the site.

    I think the concept here is that they both has more output than a typical stock p'up - -

    I know that SD quarter pounders tha tI've used have *way* more output than stock Fender p'ups... and better tone!

    Thanks Big, im looking to replace the stocks and run them in series, but want to look into mixing different types if pups together for different and good sounding tones...

    I use the SJB-II's in my MIM jazz. They are significantly hotter but still sounds like a stock Jazz bass. The 1/4 pounders are even hotter but they sound like they have a more pronounced mid range bump. I prefered the SJB II's so I stayed with with them.

    for series you're gonna want lower output pickups, as the coils get essentially "added together". a pair or 12-13k hot or QP coils will give you a 25k mudbucker in series!
