I am in the process of building a P/J bass. I have a nice P body and will have it routed for the J pickup.
I was going to use Aguilar P/J pickups and a ToneStyler but now I'm having second thoughts.
I'm thinking of going with the Bartolini P/J set and either a Bart or Aggie 3 band preamp.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
Also, pickup placement for the J pickup. There's the 60's, 70's and the Pedulla placement. I've read that Pedulla has the J pickup centered at 32" from the nut. Can anyone with a Pedulla P/J confirm this? Not sure if this would only work with the Barts or not.
Pickups and electronics are all gonna be a matter of personal preference. I personally am an EMG guy, but I haven't heard much good about Aguilar pickups. Bartolinis are always a good choice. As for a preamp, how many holes for pots do you have?
Since it's a P bass body, I could have 4 holes and it would still look ok. Of course, the body would probably need a little extra routing (under the pickguard area) to fit the preamp in.
70s position sounds best with P/Js IMO. 60s is a little too close and can get very nasal.
