    Deciding on pickups is just not an easy decision to make. You just can't go down to the store and start listening to them. So I will call upon everyones opinion :)

    I am looking to replace my Fender MIA stock pups with either Lindy Fralins, Nordstrand NJ4s, SD Antiquity IIs, or Aero Type 1. I am looking for deep bass that will come through clear and articulate... not boomie or muddy. Music style will be primarily reggae. The stock pickups are OK... but I feel that something is missing... they are definitley lacking bottom even with my large gauge flatwounds.

    So with all that... Which would you chose? :help:

    Thanks :bassist:

    I haven't tried the Nord NJ'4,s but have tried Carey's other J pickups which have all been excellent.
    I'd probably choose the Aero Type I's, closely followed by the SD Antiquities.

    If you look in the pickups faq, there's a link to a thread of mine where I have clips of a bunch of J pickups including the Aeros and SD's.
