You can't really do that, but many will tell you you can. Most of them don't play a real P bass.
The key issue is that the P bass pickup coils are wide and very flat vs the jazz bass narrow and tall coil, which has EVERYTHING to do with their sound.The P coil shape simply won't fit in a J pickup shell, and vice versa. Remember that the coil is what actually senses the string.
You will do the best you can do by simply turning off the bridge pup, and turning down not just the tone knob, but the neck Volume as well.
