    Thinking about replacing the pups I have in my 1995 MIA Fender Jazz.

    Are the neck and bridge pups the same size? I thought I heard on hear somewhere that the bridge pup is smaller on some Fender jazzes.

    Thanks for your help.

    But I think you have it reversed. The neck pickup is just slightly shorter than the bridge pickup. Most replacement J pickups should fit fine, I have replaced mine with DiMarzio Model J's (perimeter wise was fine, depth was off a bit - had to take out some of the foam underneath) and Bartolini J's (fit fine perimiter and depthwise).

    Most of the pickup companies I think realized how many Fender Jazzes there are out there and opted to make the pickpus so they fit the existing pickup routes - making the swap as easy as possible.
