Hello all. I've decided to try and do some work on my backup fretted bass to make it more usable for various things... Basically the bass in question is a black/maple precision bass with a high mass bridge and an old Dimarzio pickup in there that packs a real trebly punch... However I want to add in a bit more bass end, and have it switchable. I've messed around with 'stealth' pickups in Telecaster guitars. Basically you hide another pickup under the pickguard (like the old Fender Marauder concept guitars in the '60s). This way you can make a Fender Esquire sound more like a Telecaster. When people add a neck pickup to a P bass they seem to always add a 'woofer' Mudbucker pickup. Sometimes they go down the Wife route of having it feeding a different amp. In my head I envisage blending a hidden jazz pickup that is under the pickguard and closer to the neck. I don't really want it to add character as much as a wee bit more low end thump. For this reason I may even have a capacitor in parallel with the pickup at all times to reduce it's character further... I see nobody has done this (if Google is to be trusted), so is it a waste of time?
