"My Bartolini Jazz 59CJD-LN1 pickup in the neck position provides a perfect blend of midrange growl and bottom end, along with the clearly audible high, crisp tones. It helps me create the Machine like Rhythm alongside my counterparts Bass Drum. Since I’ve started using the Bartolini Pickup it has opened doors again in creativity. Love it!!!"
