Well, I've been playing my Squier P/j (Dimarzio pickups) for quite some time. I love it, but I think its time to move on. I've figured the Cirrus 4 (USA) would make a big difference. It did. To big a difference. It felt like to much of a "spaceship" to me. The sound was incredible, but to modern for the music I play (Rock, blues, funk, jazz). I think I should go with passive electronics, bolt-on, and either P/J or J/J configuration. Budget is about 800 (what I've paid for the Cirrus)... What do you think?
