    I am thinking of buying new pickups for my Fender Jazz Bass, and I was wondering if Fender Custom Shop Pickups are better than DiMarzio pickups. :confused:

    I ripped out the Fenders on one of my JB's and replaced them with DP123's. I think they sound better than the Fender p/u's.

    However, this is MY tone preference. There are oodles of other people on this board that will disagree with me. Your ideal of what constitutes great tone should be your deciding factor.
