Squier VM Jazz Bass Fretless - Fender or Duncan Pickups

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Jazzbrew, Oct 29, 2013.

  1. Greetings all!

    I have my eye on purchasing a Squier VM Fretless Jazz Bass (online from Sweetwater or American Musical Supply). I see two different flavors out there - one with the Fender pickups and another with Duncans. I'm curious if anyone can describe the differences or if one is potentially better than the other.

    I've got a Squier Jazz bass (purchased from Sweetwater) that I love and have modified with Bart pickups and an Aguliar pre-amp. I'll probably mod this eventually but would like to avoid getting a bad bass. I've heard stories about warped necks... :(

    Thanks for your help!

    Painfully warped neck aside, I liked the stock Duncan Designed pickups in mine. I don't really play it anymore, but never felt the need to swap them out either.
