    Hey everyone... I need some help with the pickups that I want to buy, so if anyone could help that would be great. I own a Squier P/J Bass with stock pickups in it, and I want to get the Hot Stack Seymour Duncan STK-J2B Jazz pickup. So I wanna know how it will sound along with the Squier stock P pickup. If it will be too quiet or too loud or whatever... What will the balance be like? Does anyone have some advice for me? Or maybe someone can tell me which P pickup to get if it wont sound good with the Squier stock P?

    The STK-J2 is a good sounding pickup. The stacked design does make it not quite as hot as some other side by side noiseless jazz pickups, but you can always play with pickup heights to make them balance.

    I've used the SD STK-J2 combined with the SD SPB-1 in a couple PJ basses with good versatile results.

    I use 500k volume pots and a Fender TBX tone control for additional clarity if I need it.
