    Im curious about what different pickups could do to my 1975US Fender Jazz. Pickups aren't the kind of thing I could try out at the local music shop, in my bass, without major surgery. Any suggestions for a descent brand, type of pickups to upgrade to. Im definately a funk, blues style player, if that helps.

    I just put some Fralin split coils in my 76 Jazz. Love the sound. Clear, nice bottom, and that growl is just below the surface that comes out when I dig in a bit. My 2 cents.............

    First question I would ask is "what are the stock pickups not doing for you?" , and go from there. Just randomly suggesting pickups doesn't make much sense, unless we have some idea what kind of deficiency you're trying to correct.
