The reverse p people like Leland Sklar seems to prefer as the output are more balanced from strings to strings. According to them the standard P outputs on the bass side usually stronger than the treble side. By reversing the pickup position seem to solve the issue.
I have both and like both but I don’t know if there’s any output difference.
The reverse p is very Spector. Like @Al1885 says, there’s a school of thought that the reverse P has more balanced output than the traditional P setup. the Wombat school of thought is you can handle that with setup, especially with those DiMarzio ModeL Ps on your Charvel, where you can take an Allan wrench and adjust the height of your poles. And thereby output.
I have both and it’s six of one, half dozen of the other. But some people swear by it.
Exactly. It’s how you setup and play it. To hot lower the pickup, to quiet raise it up. Sometimes it’s just in your head. And you are right @Wombat-metal my reverse P is from my Spector Euro. It looks very cool though.
Speaking of Lealand Sklar his signature Warwick Star bass has a 3 way switch that connects to nothing, but merely serves as trigger to the producer that he makes switch to the pickup and just play from a different position.
Have to agree with that. And it made putting my vintage Fender Ps in my FGN complicated as they had a metal plate on the bottom which I had to take off and reverse. And put back on. Was swearing that day
