Often this is true! But sometimes it isn’t. You really need to check this on a bass by bass basis. Generally you want to measure from the bridge saddles to the pickup to check the relative position.
With some you get a P that you can turn down the J on and have it be about like a P-bass. Others are positioned a little differently. All of them will sound good though. You end up with the punch of a P and the growl of a bridge J.
Thanks @Mike_NL I was assuming that as well.
this one actually has the TI Jazz on. It was fitting to the unique sounds so I thought it was a good pairing.
Yep, phrased it all wrong
Assumption #1, Rotosound, due to red silk
Assumption #2, Rotosound 77’s
GHS Boomers have red silk too
Hmm guys, whatcha think I just add J bridge pup to my P bass. I think it may be cheapest option. And Im very happy with its build and weight.
Share with me some good PJ pups to add/replace current.
Hmm I just found out guys I buy gear from have set of Custom Shop 60s Jazz.
I was thinking, get those, put them in Jazz, get bridge pup from Jazz, put in P bass.
Which p bass are you talking about?
I love my P/J but I love it almost entirely for its P, and reading this just made me feel sorry for your P-bass
My P/J has an excellent J pickup and I still often bias against it towards the P.
Well heck man, now you made me feel sorry to ruin P. You are pointing me towards buying a new one arent ya?
Actually, I won’t because unless it’s a high end American Fender the PJ always come with 1.5” at the nut. I thought of doing the very same thing with a little twist by adding the bridge pickup circa 1975 closer to the bridge so it’d sing like a bell.
That said there’s a few things you probably want to consider. You probably want to move the jack to the edge and not on the pickguard. My plan was to do a stacked volume/ tone, volume/tone circa 1962, Bobby Vega couldn’t say enough great things about the set up. I have this setup on a few of my bass and I love it.
If you want to do it go for it. I can’t see this in anyway devalued the bass because if I see one I’d probably buy it, lol.
The GAS must flow.
Heck you guys, I have to get a good amp before I go back to buying basses.
Gallien Kruegers arent cheap.
Hey @howard who’s the group? It sounds like kind of a Japanese JAMC?
Title says “Supercar - Lucky”. I’m guessing one is the band name and the other is the song. Not sure which is which though.
Yeah, it’s Supercar. They were one of Japan’s bigger indie bands from the late '90s through mid-2000s. One of my favorites.
The bass player is relatively famous, Miki Furukawa. Yamaha did a signature version of the SBV for her, the SBV-800MF.
As a recent convert, I’ll echo this sentiment.
A couple cycled through Seattle Craigslist last month.
One was $250
