    I'm looking to have a jazz pickup installed on my Precision Professional V to give it a little more clarity and grind.

    I was thinking of adding a V-Mod Jazz pickup, but what else would be good?

    Don't over think. I would also most definitely go with a matching V-Mod Jazz pickup. I love the V-Mod split pickups on my American Professional Precision.

    you likely want a hum-canceling J pickup or you'll get noise, and if so you definitely want a "split-coil" design rather than a stack so it doesn't sound so weak.

    the question then becomes finding one that lines up with that wide-spaced bass.

    i'm sure nordstrand can do one, maybe the new duncan apollo 5-string J?

    These are the dimensions of the wider 5 string Apollos:
