The backstory.. I quite playing bass for about 10 years and started up again in 2016. I bought a Squire Vintage Modified V and then an American Special jazz bass followed by an American Standard. But heres the thing....back in the day I would have never played this jazz basses or anything similar. Just not enough guts, and too ganky and clanky. I'll admit I bought them for the looks and the brand appeal. I've spent $1000's of dollars on pickups (Aguilar, Bartolini, Seymour Duncan, Fender Custom Shop) and amps (Mesa, Aguilar x2, GK) and at the end of the day its still a jazz bass. So where do I go next? Looking for suggestions and here are some criteria: 1) Absolutely no single coil pickups or any pickup designed to sound like single coils and must be hum cancelling. 2) Minimal "gank" or "clank" in the natural sound 3) Not too "metal" looking or sounding. 4) Flatter fretboard radius preferred. 5) If its active I'd rather have a 3 band eq. Bass center frequency should be usable (not 40hz). No boost only preamps. Prefer active passive switches. Thoughts. I'd appreciate any advice.
