What J bridge pup to go with my '73 P pup?
Ok, so for awhile I've been contemplating what J pickup to put in the bridge position of my modified '05 MIM P bass. It has a '73 P pickup in neck position & a Seymour Duncan Quarterpounder J in the bridge (which is the one I want to switch out). I love my tone with just the P pickup, but not loving the Duncan J so much.
I have a couple of ideas in mind, but wanted to see what some of u guys might suggest that would be a good match with the '73 pup.

Just added a Model J to my '98 mia P. Had to switch the wires on the P to make it play nice with the DiMarzio - it is a fretless with a 3-way (a la Tony Franklin). Me likey - nice balance between pup's and can maintain the P when I like. J solo'd mwahs nicely without any hum.

Yeah, the Model J is nice because it's a split single coil and won't hum. It's also wound hotter and will better balance with your P pickup. For straight up vintage tone I'd recommend the Antiquity II as that's my favorite jazz bridge pickup.

Model J in mine also, gets along ok with the SPB-2.
