Hey guys. I was thinking about routing my squier jazz to fit a music man style humbucker. But before I go perform surgery on my beloved bass, I want to see if you know if there are any jazz bass single coil sized humbuckers. I checked SD's website and found nothing but i heard once that dimarzio might make something like this. Thanks in advance.

I know dimarzio does that wierd double-blade pup. I've only seen it for P-basses though.

I think bartolini might make one.

You mean a split coil?

Anything that can be called a humbucker won't fit in your current setup, so I'm pretty sure you'll have to rout it any way you go.

Stacked humbuckers never did it for me. Route her out.

No, it has two rows of I'm presuming poles. So the set-up kinda looks like this:

You're exactly right, I've seen them before. Nice pickups, too. TS, I'd rout it out.

Be sure to rape the blue note (augmented 4th). Rape it hard and exploit it like the skank it is.

It depends if you want humbuckers for the tone or the noiselessness. If it's for the tone, the answer is obvious: either a) buy a bass with humbuckers or b) rout out some room on your current bass. If you just want noise cancellation then there are any number of noiseless "stacked humbuckers" that will be a direct drop in for jazz bass pickups.
