    So I bought a roadworn PUP with the intention to buy a cheap squier and throw it in there. I saw a CV I liked a lot and wound up buying it. Do you think I should still try out the roadworn PUP or just leave it alone? I know it's just a matter of opinion, and that's all I'm asking for, your opinion.

    I can only offer an opinions on the J version of both of those pickups and all I can say is that I like both of them very much! So much that I have a CV Jazz that I've kept original and I put the Roadworn sent in one of my VM Jazz basses. I don't if this will help you or confuse the issue, but it's the truth.

    Cool that helps I think. Idk I already bought the PUP so I guess I might as well put it in. Just not sure if I should go through the trouble to wind up with almost the same sound/quality.

    One more suggestion: I don't know if your finances will allow this, but you could leave the CV alone and buy a used Affinity Squier P bass and put the roadworn pickup in that. I've seen them going for $65 on Craigs List. The three P basses in my avatar are all Affinitys. I use them to test out different pickups, hardware, and strings. They really are a good deal for the money.

    Well that was the original plan, but then the CV came along. I don't necessarily want another P. Thanks for your help though.

    It all depends on how much you like the pickup in the CV. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
