  1. which pups?


    hi all. im currently rebuilding my squire MB5 bass. it has jazz style pups. i was wondering what you would recomend by way of pick ups that are good for slap, but passive. and put out thumb/palm muffled notes with a clean, defined low end and a hard, snapy, growly tone?

    I'll second the Ultra Jazz pickups!

    Here's a hint; get yourself two push pull volume pots. You can then email Dimarzio and get a diagram of how to wire those ultra jazzes to those pots. You'll get many more tone options that way. Works just fine in my 2000 MIM jazz bass.
