i got a 1994 CIJ Fender Jazz bass in a trade recently. the previous owner upgraded it with a Badass II bridge, and a set of Fender Original Jazz Bass pickups. i've heard that this bridge improves sustain, but what about the pickups? how does this new set of pickups differ from the original in tone or sound?

btw i know the pickups are what he said they were, since he gave me the box and the original pickups.


edit: i suppose these are it. http://www.fender.com/products//search.php?partno=0992123000

they make it sound more vintage.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

They're especially good for vintage music, like classic rock and pop. They're good for a bottom-heavy, boomy tone while still keeping some high end if you need it.
