Round out your bass tone with this pickup set.
The DiMarzio DP123 Replacement Neck & Bridge Pickup Set for Fender J-Bass keeps the crunchy, focused sound of the traditional Fender Jazz Bass tone while boosting gain and response. This additional presence means a bigger sound with improved attack and bite - great for highly articulated playing! The sensitivity and deep tone of these DiMarzio pickups are also the perfect complement to the warm character of fretless basses. Double-stop glissandos and delicate violin-style vibrato speak with a classic, woody voice simply by backing off slightly on the tone controls.
Unlike traditional pickups, these DiMarzio DP123 pickups are individually humbucking. They're not a stack: each coil picks up one pair of strings. By doing it this way they keep the resistance down and the tone clean and clear.

Comments about DiMarzio DP123 Model J Bass Pickup Set:
I put this pickup set in a jazz bass is was building. I was looking for increased output w/ a vintage vibe..the response was amazing! Increased lows, punchy mids, and great high end, too (and not too glassy). No additional EQ-ing is needed on my rig like w/ cheaper pickups. Little or no EQing has been needed for PAs as well (I had the oprotunity to plug this bass direct into a large PA system at a local 400-seat theatre, and the tone response was impressive to say the least). Pickups also sound great for direct recording... either in a pro-studio or at home with a 4-track. These pickups would be great for the intermediate player looking to replace their stock pickups, but would also be great for the seasoned player looking for that "old school" vibe without paying that old school $5000 price tag for a vintage bass (and if you DO have a vintage jazz bass BUT bad pickups...these will make the bass sing again). NOTE- These pickups are a bit deeper than most pickups I've worked with. Some additional routing may be needed depending the bass you're putting them in (some cheaper bodies aren't routed deep enough). Still, the work will be worth it!
