Hey guys, I just got my Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass (shite, that's a mouthful) back from the tech, after being initially unimpressed with the tone. He re-potted it with military spec pots, copper shielded the inside, installed a bone nut & set it up. Unfortunately, I'm still quite unhappy with the tone. It has this extremely ugly excursion in the mids, which something that I've heard in every fender bass, ever, and I absolutely hate it. It also has virtually no low-end. A bassist friend of mine says both 'qualities' can be attributed to the single coil pickups. In this case they're Duncan Designed, so I imagine they suck, even by single coil standards. I need suggestions for some stacked humbuckers that provide punchy, clear, hi-fi low-end, and snarly, masculine grit. So far from the basses I've used, I've enjoyed the grit from EMG DC 40s... so I want something aggressive like that, but in passive form, as I'm not keen to start routing into the body of the bass and installing active electronics. This will be my last attempt before I sell the bass, and move back into a price range that has less hideous overall build quality. Thanks!
