so i've posted so many "this vs. that" threads that i've decided this time i'm going to just post what i'm after and take your thoughts on it. i'm looking for new pickups for my 2001 mia jazz (natural/maple). it's going into a mesa 400+/svt 8x10, and i play in 2 LOUD rock bands (see my signature). i'm looking for something with slightly more output, and a thick, balanced tone. here are some of the pickups i've thought of: dimarzio ultra jazz dimarzio model j (don't like the adjustable pole pieces) basslines quarter pounders basslines hot jazz fender cs 60's i'm not looking to spend a ton of money, and right now i'm not really interested in the series/parallel mod. i just don't like the idea of switches or push/pull pots on my bass. i'm very active when we play, and i like just having the 3 knobs wide open. let me know what you all think. thanks alot. i'm sure i'll have more questions later.
