    I'm talking about early 50's style p-bass single coils, anybody have a bass with two of these pickups?

    Once, I saw someone here take a 51 Precision reissue and add a "bridge pickup" of the same type.
    I can't remember who it was...........

    You could easily wireem volume/volume instead of volume/tone
    but I'm quite sure it must be a cool design and a smart option

    Only... Leo Fender thought about something like that in 1960, when, right after Precision ugradin', was thinkin' about hummin'
    single pickups and came to the soon to become Jazz prototype

    Cheers,

    Lollar or Nordstrand or a wide range of people could do that for you.

    This nash is pretty cool! Remember the bridge p.u. would need to be wider like on a jazz though. [​IMG]

    I had that idea after i bought a cool 51 style bass bodyhere,but the cost having a wider bridge p.u.made would robably push me to a jazz bridge p.u.

    Isn't that known as a Jazz Bass?

    Wish I was deft enough to rout for a J pickup, that looks cool.

    That spacing would be one way to go.I'd love to try that out!The spacing pole to pole looks around 2"-2-1/4" maybe that's the easy solution i was looking for.

    Cool Folks! Thanks so much.

    I'm not looking to buy one so much as looking for a creative build with some parts that I have on hand. This gives me some food for thought.

    P-bass SC's sound different than J-bass pickups(to me). Not saying one is better than the other, just looking for thoughts and ideas.

    The bass player with Amee Mann has a good=sounding Tele Bass with two pickups. There are two PBS shows and the tastey album The Forgotten Arm.
