Making a Double-J from a SJB-3 set?
I have a Fender Modern Player Jazz bass. I know you've all been bombarded with the whole "what replacement pickups will fit" thing..
What I want to know though is..
Can I put the single coil Seymour Duncan SJB-3 neck/bridge set in the double jazz pickup's casing?
Feel free to correct me :hiding:
I love this bass.
It just needs a bit brighter, more agressive, punchy tone.
The set already is a humbucker. The pickups have reverse wired coils that cancel hum.
What you want to do is turn them into a double jazz block.
The neck pickup is slightly narrower than the bridge, so it can fit into a double jazz casing but the poles won't line up. It isn't so bad for the strings but may be visually disturbing.
Why wouldn't you directly buy a double jazz replacement instead?
Thanks for the reply.
Well for one, I can't find a suitable pickup to replace it with.
And two, I really don't want to import anything from outside of South Africa. The exchange rate would kill me.
Would it be crazy to fit two SJB-3's in the neck? Or would that just be a waste of money?
Another alternative would be buying a std Jazz pickguard, cover the cavity and take out the neckbucker. Making it single coil.
I just find it way too muddy.
These pickups just don't provide that classic mid scoop I'm after.
If I did get a double, it would have to be able to split.
Can't you add a switch to split the current pickups? It usually is easy to do.
It's probably possible. Had a go at splitting the bridge pup last night. It now has 4 wires instead of 2. Just need to buy switches and see if it still works after I was in there with a soldering iron. I'm pretty confident it will though.
Just not sure how to wire them.
Can't find a schematic online.
My bass has 2 volumes and 1 tone.
