    Suggestions for a fat vintage type sound? Fenders 62 RI pickups perhaps?
     
  2. I heartily recommend the Duncan Basslines Classic Stack for Jazz Bass. These have been around since before Duncan began using "Basslines" to identify their line of bass pickups. I had a set on a '72 Jazz Bass that I used for more than 10 years and they sounded great. Sound techs loved that bass and it worked great in the studio. I'm sure the Fender Original 62's are good too; I have one of the '62 P-Bass pickups in my P-Bass clone and it has that great vintage P-Bass fatness.
