Best Jazz Pickups

May 31, 2017

The Easy-To-Understand Best

“My Fretless Jazz bass is hardly a Fender anymore. It has a custom fretless neck (from Performance Guitars in Hollywood), a Leo Quann Badass Bridge, and Lindy Fralin pickups (the body is still Fender!). When I bought the bass (used, in 1983) it had Dimarzios in it, which sounded a little dark. I wanted more of a growly, midrangy, Jacoesque tone. I read a review of these in Bass Player which praised them up and down, so I ordered a set. I made the right decision. They're amazing pickups, responsive and clear without sounding thin or biting at all.”

The sound on them is HUGE - the best sounding passive pickups I've ever used by far. AND - no noise!! If you like that vintage sound, and don't wanna deal with annoying noise, I recommend these highly. ”
