I got a Neck position SJB3 and a Bridge position SJB3 to upgrade the pickups in my made in Mexico Jazz Bass. They have a slightly fatter, more classic and punchy jazz pickup tone than the stock ones did, These do run a little bit hot on the action, though, and I adjust my pair of SJB3s very gradually with the knobs. As for installation, these are very easy to install if you are familiar with soldering the electronics. If not, it's worth paying a professional repairman/luthier to install these properly and they will sound just as good either way. If you are looking for a good set of pickups to replace the stock ones in a cheap Squier/Made in Mexico bass, these will work. However, in my opinion as a gigging bassist on a budget, they aren't that strikingly different than the cheaper stock pickups. I couldn't justify spending $60 a piece on them, disconnected and returned them both.
Pros +Improved tone over cheaper stock Fender and Squier pickups +Easy to install...
Love it. Replaced stock pickups on my squire '72 reissue
