Good if used in a set
I am an avid Fender Jazz Bass user (don't give me a P-bass, I will throw it out the door), and I think these pickups are awesome. I play mostly metal (any kind really), and it's perfect for blues even. The review above mentions a hum, and this is a problem if you don't use them as a set. The neck version is RW/RP for hum cancelling. If going for a P/J style bass, then get a stacked or side by side J-bass pup. If going for a J-bass set, then this is perfect for you.

I have this pickup in the bridge position, and a quarter pound P at the neck on one of my basses.  The P is dead quiet, but this pickup is noisy.  I primarily play studio sessions, so I can only use the P pickup when recording with this bass.  That's fine, because the quarter pound P sounds great!  However, if I want to have a touch of J-bass flavor in the tone, I have to use another bass.

I have played this bass live, and the hum isn't terrible in live applications.  You can hear it, though.  I'm going to change out this pickup soon, probably with a Hot for Jazz bridge pickup.  On the Basslines website, it is labelled as hum-cancelling.
