    My 2 cents.............
    There are a lot of good pickups out there. Personally, rather than go with Fender MIA pups, I'd try Fender Custom Shop or Lindy Fralins. Either one for a vintage tone. No experience with either, but they will be better than MIA for a bit more money.
    I put Barts in my SX and I love them. Vintage tone? Nope. Just very versatile, quiet, all around pups.
    If you want MIA pups, go get 'em.

    Knock yourself out. There are a zillion options and sources.

    The fender custom shop P/U's are nice! I had them in my old jazz bass and liked them a lot. The difference between the custom shop pickups and the ones that were on the stock bass was like night and day.

    There are a lot of really good pickups out there.
