Humbuckers vs. Split coil/Modern Player vs. Blacktop
So I posted about getting my hands on a bass that sounds way different than my American Std jazz. I love the playability of the neck and the body is real comfortable.
So there are two options I'm eyeballing. The Modern Player jazz and the Blacktop jazz.
So - one's made in China, one in Mexico. One is humbuckers, one is dual split coils.
Fender describes the MP as a beginner bass, but it's priced exactly as the blacktop.
I've read threads on both - so anyone get to play both and can make a comparison.
Im bumping this for you because I am also curious about this. The MP is a great deal im just concerned that the humbuckers are cheapish and wont give the type of tone I would be after.
I just wanna know which has more CA-HO-NAYS
Even if its not the MP vs Blacktop
Just double humbuckers or double split-coils?
I've heard good things about both lines and would love to end up with both if they're different enough.
I A-B'd them very briefly in a guitar center... the dual Split P sounded a lot better to my.
I also can't help but think about "upgradabillity"... and a split P pickup has MUCH more variety than the dual single coil.
He's right my friend: they're more dual coils than humbuckers
RotoSound swing66 strings and full step downtuned it with no pickup swappin' at all, for its distinctive uber vitaminic sound)
