Can anyone comment on the output level of the Dimarzio Area Jazz compared to a straight up single coil that is hot-ish? I have a Vintage Modified Jazz which has stock pickups that are quite similar to Duncan SJB-1's. The tone is great, but I want to be able to solo the pickups without noise. From what I read, the Area J is a decent poor man's version of a Fralin or Nordstrand split coil. My only concern is loss of output because I also have an EB style sidewinder that I added at the far neck position on this bass. The singles balance reasonably well with the mudbucker but its going to be too muddy if I lose output with the split singles. The Ultra Jazz probably has the right output level, but I''d prefer to keep a flatter frequency output range if possible. By the way, I never know what the right protocol is - start a new thread vs adding to a relatively old one. I'd welcome any coaching on that too.
