    Hiya. I just bought a MiM Classic Player's jazzy, and while I love her to death, I think the pickups are a bit lacking, especially the neck. I was thinking of swapping them out for Jason Lollars when I have the money. Thoughts? Would it be worth it?

    Jason winds a beautiful pickup you really can't go wrong there. Might want to upgrade the rest of the signal chain while you're at it. RS "super" volume pot, CTS tone and a PIO cap will really bring out the best in any pickups.

    Thanks, man. I'll probably wind up doing that.

    I just installed a pair of Lollar Jazzmaster pickups in a clients guitar...They sound excellent.
