Does anyone make a Jazz body with one P-pup?

    Not a PJ set-up, not a double-P, but just the one split coil in the Precision-correct position?

    I'm thinking that one of these with a 1.625" maple neck would be my ideal mix of sound & ergonomics, but I have no idea how one would look. Any photos?

    I tried searching, but couldn't find anything like this, just P/J & P/P.

    Yes, Fender does make that arrangement in one of their signature models

    Thanks guys, it's really the regular P-coil configuration I was looking for, but I did completely forget that model existed! Could be potential for a build using that, though.

    I know they changed the Hoppus model at some point, does anyone remember if the old model had the regular P-set up? EDIT: nevermind, found some photos.

    The current Mark Hoppus is not in the correct P position, I am pretty sure the treble and bass sides were flipped a few years ago. The original run ones were just a normal P pickup.

    Does it matter that it has reverse-P positioning of the coils?

    Edit: that's directed at the OP who may look at the Mark Hoppus model.

    Yup, it does to me, really. It also matters if the pickup is in the 'correct' location, which I'd have to research with the Hoppus. If I'm going to go to the effort, may as well get it how I want!

    Looking at my precision now, the pick up location on the Mark signature looks forward (towards the neck) by a good amount. Not just treble side flipped.
