    I want to put Bartolini 59J1 pickups in my bass with a vol-blend-tone setup all with 500k pots and one push-pull pot for series/parallel switching. I realy want a passive system with good growl in the fingerstyle deparment, but with a nice slap tone. Am I making a good decision?

    Too many variables to make a blanket 'yes/no' statement. Woods/strings/preamp/playing style/personal preference etc etc

    I think they will get you a good sound, and it will have growl, but I don't know if it'll be the sound you want.

    I've got 9j's in my 72 jazz and love em. I'm total finger style though. I do play around with slap and they sound like if I knew what I was doing they wold be great. The tone is to die for-especially when I dial the neck pu out just a little.
