I am getting a MIM Jazz bass very soon and I have heard that a lot of people end up replacing the pickups first thing. Also, I have heard that the stock pickups are noisy and I can't stand noise, so I am planning on replacing them. I play 80's metal and hard rock mostly, and I want a pretty grungy tone with a lot of dirt in it. Also, I want a lot of bottom end and a snarly top. That's the best way I can describe it. I read the Article in BP about Jazz pickups, but with their descriptions I couldn't really picture what it would sound like. Anyone's suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks a lot!
