5 string p/j setup

  1. hey my first post!

    i have built myself a 5 string bass (never again! :eek: ) and have been losing sleep over what pickups to go for.

    I have decided that I should probably go for the tried and tested jazz bass option :oops: but was considering p/j :rolleyes: .

    any experience with 5 string p/j?.

    they are a bit hard to find so i haven't been able to try one.

    i read a review that said something about the B string being a bit lost with the two pickups on.

    any thoughts i'd be grateful.

    cheers
    mike

    Hi, 1964

    Have you played Bill Lawrence pickups? How do J45 & P-46 sound? vintage?

    I was asking for info on dimension of J45 & P46 in another thread. If you have a set of J45 & P46, please measure the pole piece spacing for me. Thanks.
