    I just got my 70's red sx jazz bass, very fine instrument. The pickups already i think are really nice but I cant help but think I should just upgrade them, take the bass up a notch.
    I have some Seymour Designed pickups laying around from my fretless squire, do you think that would be an improvement over the stock?
    I got some fender original pickups (the kind they have in the geddy apparently) but the reviews I've read said there not that good.
    Would Dimarzios be a good choice?
    I need something versatile, I play a lot of rock/blues/country-ish Grateful Dead type stuff, along with some reggae and a little bit of punk. I've been getting into slapping and funk metal lately too.
    Thanks for your thoughts

    WHat would give me a good slap sound that will cut through, something like Trevor Dunns tone on the Mr. Bungle (Self titled)?

    I put a set of Dimarzios on mine, only $100 at bestbassgear.

    Very Satisfied with the results
