I'd agree with it being good for jazz, I find it to be a very brittle sounding, in your face pickup - it's bassy but I wouldn't say it was warm.

It definitely performs better a little further away from the strings than you'd normally expect (at least 5mm) so the sound can breathe a bit and getting the balance between the treble and bass heights can be fiddly but even then personally i was never entirely happy with it which is why I was toying with the idea of 1 meg pots.

Not the nature of the guitar really.
I know that. I was asking him if his technique is good enough to do it, no amps or pickups to help get the sound across easier.
