    Hi i've got two Matsumoku MIJ Washburns from the 70's that play amazing, the only problem is the pickups are lacking bottom end and are picking up a ton of horrible clanking. I wanted to swap all 3 pickup sets out, any recommendations? One has a Jazz bass type by the bridge and both have a P-Bass split pickup. Thank you so much!

    If you've got two to reset, I would do one with Dimarzios (Model P Ceramic and the J equivalent) for a more 70's in your face tone. I would do the second one with more vintage oriented pickups. Antiquity II P and J would be a nice direction also look at Aguilar they make amazing pickups.

    Best place to snag pickups as well perhaps? Thanks for the suggestion

    Talk Bass classified if you are patient otherwise a store with a return policy might be very desirable.

    Those look like DiMarzios in there already.
