Who makes a good 6-string J pickup?

    I'm looking to replace the pickups in my Brownsville 6. Aguilar OBP-3 preamp and I tune F# to G. I need punch and lows...nothing too mellow; I've got my fretless for that.

    Any ideas?

    IIRC, Delano's JC-6 was regarded as a fairly good pickup. No personal experience, though.

    I have personal experience with the Benevente's... Amazing pickups...

    Single coil J bridge growl to MM/Alembic bottom end thump and transparency for slap to fat and punchy P type sound.... Brian Barrett is a genius!

    The Bill Lawrence J-45 is reputed to work for a six-string...depending on the string spacing of your instrument...
