Squire pups or Fender pups

  1. Are the pickups in a Squire bass alot weaker and bad sounding than in a MIJ fender bass? I played a squire jazz and liked what I heard, so I'm hoping a fender will be that much better.

    I'm definitely not an expert here, but from what I've heard the Squier pickups are supposed to be made a whole lot cheaper than anything Fender b/c it's all made in Europe.
  3. I'll tell you, the pups in Squire PBass I have sound a hell of a lot better than the pups in the MIM Jazz I have.

    It is all subjective to the listener.

    What sounds bad to one, sounds good to another one.
