Separate names with a comma.
Maple with flats, rosewood with rounds.
Leaving aesthetics and comfort aside, a bass is merely a sonic tool. Any bass can be used in any music nowadays; however, my humble experience...
I can see myself living with only my Jazz if I have to. However, having a P with flats too surely helps.
That thing seems to have its own mixing desk.
To state the obvious; this is a luxury item beyond a guitar - just as a Bugatti is beyond a car.
What a coincidence; I have recently tried 3 different necks to my USA P-Bass Special:
Stock rosewood neck
Maple P neck (Mexico)
Rosewood J neck...
My favorite P-bass pickups are Aguilar AG 4P-60s. Vintage-ish yet clear.
I guess you can pull that tone off with light mid-oriented overdrive + light chorus. And an attack like a boxer.
My choice would be:
Aguilar AG 4P-60 with Chromes.
I hope that helps:
Available on Spotify too:
I also have one of those (in light blue). One of the best jazz basses I have ever played. Enjoy!

Can't go wrong with a P, congratulations!
They care if I play right and if my sound fits the audio spectrum well.
Whenever I got a bass like that, I have simply made my luthier carve a gap to the body so I can access the truss rod easily.
