    Another "converted-to-SDQP" here.
    Installed a pair of J's as a replacement for the rather skinny,characterless J's as found as factory-installed in a 5-string FGN Standard JB (the factory PU's had wrong dimensions - smaller (shorter as related to the bridge's string spacing....the opened pole pieces were grossly mis-aligned).The bass needed some rerouting and another pickguard.
    I choosed the passive,500k+500k vol-vol-tone route because the SDQP are hot...really hot and I wanted to sqeeze all the juice these PU's are capable of.
    Currently,this upgraded axe eats small children. ;)

    Sorry bud,I don't get your "France" and "Royale" things.Some "subtle" irony,perhaps?
    ....oh,if you meant something related to my username,it's only a nickname.I'm not French and I'm not living in France.
  6. with cheese......
  7. I have them in my jazz too, along with a Hipshot Kickass bridge they really thunder

    Take a deep breath. It's a reference to a classic line in the movie "Pulp Fiction" and a brilliant use of it in this thread. I'm pretty sure it's wasn't a personal attack. YouTube the term 'royale with cheese'

    I wasn't short-breathed at all.Even less,exposed to any kind of "personal attack" of any kind.And yes,I'm well aware about the Pulp Fiction quote.I just didn't find it soooo "brilliant" as you do .... obviously,a gap between different kinds of sense of humour. (y)

    Personally, I'd prefer a Whopper. Or Five Guys. And I'd prefer to eat in rather than pickup.

    I put a SDQP in my 71 P back in 1983 and have always loved it. At the same mod I went to a bad Ass II bridge, a brass nut and round wound strings so it was hard to say what the pickup switch did but the combination is great. Luckily I did save the original bridge and pick up.

    I have a PJ set. The P is nice but the 60 cycle hum from the jazz is annoying. My DiMarzio set was much more quiet. The tone is pretty big though.
  18. Had a set in my old cort p bass. Sounded amazing but a little too in your face for what I was going for.

    I have a pj set going in my project bass because the entire premise of that bass is to be obnoxious

    My apologies. I was just having a little fun. I did not mean to derail your thread. It was meant to be a little hit and run joke. Please carry on.

    I stuck one in my Squier P-Bass a years ago and it transformed the bass in a way I didn't think possible. I'm thinking about putting a set in my Fender Jaguar but I don't think it needs it at the moment. I haven't personally heard them in a jazz bass or a P/J configured bass but I can only imagine what it sounds like
