    What are the advantages of an mm/j config over say a p/j or a single MM. Coil tapping aside your single coil is at the neck, which is not really where you would want it, as all the midrage goodness comes from the bridge. Someone prove me wrong :)
  2. I have had a Lakland with MM/J and a Musicman with the single pickup. The MM/J is a lot fatter, particularly when playing direct in the studio. I would also play it with the MM solo which also sounds good. I never solo'ed the J in the neck. I don't think you can go wrong with any bass with a MM pickup in the bridge position. Personally, I prefer the Musicman bass to a Lakland for a number of reasons. The swamp ash of the Lakland has a much snappier tone that the poplar of the MM which I like better, although some may disagree.

    I found this to be the case with my Godlyke.
