    I'm customizing a jazz bass to have a J pickup in the neck position and a musicman humbucker in the bridge position. I already have a Seymour Duncan MM Alnico pickup in the bridge. I'm trying to decide on which Duncan to put in the neck. The "Hot for Jazz Bass"? The "Quarter Pound"? Any suggestions on which might work better and compliment the MM pickup? Not too overly trebley, some warmth, good punch. I play mostly rock and metal. I'm also going to be using an active onboard preamp.

    Also, how should the MM pickup be wired. Series, parallel or does it not matter?
