I have a 1998 american deluxe jazz bass and was wondering why fender chose to install these particular pups' on the deluxe models. As far as I can tell they did this for two years. In the parts breakdown they describe both pickups as a rhythm(neck) and a lead(bridge) american deluxe weatherstrip pickup. I am about to change them for some nordstrands or ultra-jazzes. Can anybody tell me if these stock single pole pups are any good? They sound o.k. I guess.
