steve here--new member. i concede ignorance in knowledge of my instument. i read that the standard pickups on the geedy lee model jazz, buzz unless turned all the way up, this in fact is true, however i truly love this bass--couldn't afford the original. my question is would it benefit me to replace these pickups with american made pickups. this bass was made in japan, as well as the hardware. will i get a better sound? the purest fender sound is what i desire. don't handle with kid gloves guys---if this is stupid, please tell me. thanks for the honesty.
