    I just killed the neck pickup in my DJ. Do I get a new Lakland/Hanson replacement, or replace both pickups with Aeros?

    Broke the winding. I could have it rewound, but a new Lakland pickup is only sightly more expensive.

    To me the lakland and aero sounds really close. If you want to hear by yourself:

    I prefer the aeros and that's what I left in the bass. I got the lakland in a drawer waiting to be played...PM me if you want them.

    Since this has the Laklands, JUSt replace the neck pickup.....if you liked the sound before why change?

    those are some awsome basses!!!

    I hear the maple/black blocked neck will be available on other lakies soon...even in 5 string!!! yahoo!!!

    Hi all,
    Don't mean to hijack this thread, but..
    What d'you guys think of installing an EMG JVX on DJ 4?
    The reasons why is, I tought it's gonna be an easy job to replace the stock pup with JVX, no soldering required.
    Or maybe you guys have another suggestions for the pup replacement. So far i've been using aguilar tone hammer to amp'd up my DJ4, and now i'm thinking to mod it with JVX after i saw Ed Friedland on youtube reviewing JVX. Really interesting...

    Cheers!

    The JVX pickups don't appeal to me at all.

    I'd also just replace the neck pickups with another Lakland as long as you liked the tone before. The Aero's aren't a radical departure from the Laklands anyway.
