    The Jazz shows slightly more treble and slightly less bass from (x) string gauge. These are matters of fine degrees. Also, the Jazz comes stock with 4-conductor wire for coil-splitting.

    Depends on the rest of the rig, but sure, they've got as much top end as any regular production humbuckers Duncan makes, they'll cut through. I'd add: much depends on the rest of the guts in your guitar- make sure you've got pots which test to spec (500k-range), good connections, etc. If the pots are weak, they'll make any pickup sound like mud.

    I like a "treble bypass" cap soldered between the in&out lugs of the volume pot(s), valued .001mf, in addition to the .02 junction cap between the vol & tone pots- keeps the highs intact when you turn down the volume.

    Funny you should post this, I am right now heating up my soldering iron to replace tha Jazz in the neck of my PRS CU22 with a '59. I have a JB in the bridge. The Jazz is ok but it's a little too smooth for me and I always liked the '59 so I am going to give it a try. Well, here I go... ;)
