Ideas for single pickup bass build
I'm planning to put together a bass with a friend of mine - my first bass build! Luckily he has a lot more experience than me...
Anyway, after much planning I have decided it will have just the one pickup, but I'm at a bit of a loss what to choose. The bass will probably be passive (although I'm toying with the idea of fitting a John East P-retro just for the hell of it). Now I do love the classic P tone but I'm after something a little different, but still something that can grunt and growl with plenty of top.
The position of the pickup will either be in the P position or the Aria SB position, a little further back.
Any suggestions or ideas? I'm just trying to find out what sort of things are out there that would suit such an application.
