    Default Fender Precision & Jazz Bridge Original pickups or Seymour Duncan SPB-1 & SJB-1B?

    A few months ago, I bought from a friend of mine a used Black 2000 Ibanez Gio Soundgear GSR 190 bass for $80.00. I couldn't pass on it. If no one is familiar with it, here's what it looks like.

    This is going to be my main bass for I'm retiring my 1984 Fender USA Precision Bass. I'm going to rip out the tone-dead pickups out of the Ibanez & replace them with better pickups. The bass has the P/J pickup combination.


    I just picked up the Fender Original Precision bass pickup. The question is for bridge pickup. Should I go with the Fender Original Jazz pickup, or the Seymour Duncan SJB-1B to go with the Fender Precision Pickup?


    OR....


    Should I go for the Seymour Duncan SPB-1 & SJB-1B set-up?


    I'm going for a vintage bass sound. No active pickups, extremely hot sounding pickups, or ceramic pickups.


    If anybody can lead me in the right direction or have any other suggestions, please let me know.


    As always opinions always welcome.

    Plug in, turn it up & stand back. Less is more & loud is good.

    Whatever sounds best to your ear. For me, I'd think the Precision Bass pickups would give the classic sound you describe.
