    Hi, i am looking to modify my jazz bass. I want to change my pickups. I am looking for a fat, dense, bright sounding and punchy sound, something like how a p-bass would sound? Anyone have any recommendations??

    Certainly you should read through the sticky thread above..... there's some great info in there....

    But if you're trying to bring your J closer to a P, I'd suggest the Dimarzio Model J's (read about 'em in the Showdown thread).... a series/parallel switch wouldn't hurt either....
