I was thinking of changing my pickups, i have a Jaguar bass with the stock Vintage Jazz Bass pickups.

How do these rack up against other pickups around? I was thinking of Fender custom shop 60s. I like a vintage tone, somthing wit bite but the only sounds i seem to get is pretty lifeless.

It may be the amp head im using, which is a Ashdown ABM evo II 500w, but even with the mids up and the valve drive it still sounds pretty dull.
