    6 string Jazz pickups

    So my bass player got one of the SX 6 string basses from Rondo. Believe it or not, it's actually a pretty nice bass for the little he played. The electronics are the weakest link as one would expect so i'm trying to help him out and find some choices for pickups. Unless there are some brands that I am overlooking, it looks like his choices are $400 for Nordstrands, $250 for Aguilars, $200 for Bartolini, or $90 for Carvin pickups. I don't think he would be happy with the Carvins and I don't think he wants to put $400 pickups in a cheap bass. Are there any other 6 string jazz pickups out there that are good but perhaps not so pricey?

    Doesn't the whole bass cost $200 anyway?

    It might be the perfect opportunity to wind your own pickups. You know you want to.
