    First, yes I did do a search and yes I've read the sticky.

    Now that we have that out of the way, I'm looking for a pickup recommendation. I have a Vintage Icon Jazz Bass with Wilkinson pickups which I like, but they are low output compared to my other basses. I'd like to get a recommendation on a high output pickup with a vintage Fender Jazz tone.

    I'd check the wiring first, just to make sure there's nothing unusual going on.

    If you get new pickups, you might have to decide which you want more: true vintage tone or extra high output? Keep in mind, if the ones you have now are extra soft, a standard vintage-type set might seem hotter by comparison.
