    I haven't tried the Fender bass pickups but of all the Fender pickups I have tried, the Fenders were always 2nd best to a set of Duncans.

    Both the Classic 60s and the SJB-1s are fairly low output so that will be a hard and close comparison. "More" tone isn't something you can measure but I think you'll find the tone of the SD SJB-1s to be preferrable.

    My personal favorites are the SD Hot Stacks for Jazz Bass. Warmer and louder than stock with no hum. I have them in my Jazz Bass and I get regular compliments on its tone.

    T4D got a new gig!
