So, I have an old Squier P-bass with J-bass pickups and electronics, and I was surprised how much I dug how it sounded when I picked it up recently; for the amount of bass I play, I figure it's a good enough bass for me so I'm thinking of not replacing the Dingwall when I sell it. With that in mind, while the stock pickups are actually servicable enough, I want o throw something a little nicer in there. It doesn't desperately NEED better pickups, but why the fuck not, right?
So, what do you guys like for J-bass pickups? Passive, as the bass itself is passive and I don't want to add a battery. I was thinking maybe the Duncan Quarter Pounders, based on nothing more than they look kind of cool. Anything else I should look at?
Also, love how I can't post one of these without telling a story? I could just say "I need good passive J-bass replacement pickups - GO!" and leave it at that.
