    I am possibly going to replace the stock MIM precision pickups in my backup bass. I going for a stronger output and hopefully better sound . Does anyone have any input on how Quarter Pounders sound VS Geezers? Or is there something that is even better?

    I have geezers in my p/j, they are a major upgrade in terms of tone and clarity...output though is about the same maybe a little lower than the stock MIM pickups, but sounds 100x better in a mix.

    The Stock pickups were harsher, had worse string-to-string balance, and just generally didnt gel so well in a the mix.

    Wow, thanks. I just saw the Geezer mega thread, guess I'll be reading that tonight. I didn't mention it, but string balance is something to think about.
