    i have a new geddy lee jazz. i love the feel of it, but it leaves a little to be desired in the "ass" dept.

    will better/different pickups help in that? i think the ones that came with the GL are made for the higher tones.

    thanx.

    I've had good results with Dimarzio Model Js. The neck pickup gets especially deep-- to my ears it's very close to a P-bass sound. (I use a MIM Jazz, not a Geddy Lee, but you get the idea...)
