Adding J pickup to a P Bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by fat-bottom, Aug 23, 2002.


  1. I've got a great American P-Bass but miss the bridge pickup of a jazz. What does this addition do to the overall tone of the bass? Will it still sound like a P-Bass if I solo the neck pickup?

    I did that conversion to my Elite P-bass. If you solo the P-bass pickup it will sound like a P-bass, Both pickups on will sound almost like a J-bass except for a little more Depth. Very nice sounding. Mine has a volume for each pickup, and a Master tone.
