This is just to say a HUGE thanx to all who replied to my previous thread re having a softer d string on my MIJ fender Jazz bass. I tried everything u guys suggested & in the end it came down to getting new pups!! Got SD quarter pounders & man they sound great!!! So Thanx again to all who helped, I ended up learning a lot re setting up, elecs, nuts, bridges etc... Cheers everyone, Rod.
