Hey guys, the modding bug bit me again and this time I'm aching for a second pickup on my MiM Precision. Mods already done are a PU swap for 62s and an added diode distortion (Germanium) which I like blended in 50% but eh besides the point innit! Of course, TI flats on this one. Anyway, I've recently fallen in love with the sound Richard Sinclair gets on the milestone Caravan albums, most notably 'If I could do it all over again, I'd do it all over you'. Awesome growl, lots of definition without being clanky or obnoxious. Sounds to me like flatwounds also. From what I've gathered (live footage etc), he plays a Jazz and sometimes a PJ. My question is, would a bridge pickup get me in the ball park? Click here for a sample of what I'm looking for. And if adding a bridge pup is the way to go,the big question is, what do I go with? My first thought was, of course, a 62 Jazz bridge pup. However, I don't quite like the looks and would like something that looks unconventional (says the guy playing a P!) but should it come down to it, sound has priority... My dream pup would be a Dark Star, both sound and look wise. But try to get ahold of one in Europe, let alone cheap - the Curt Novak version would be another candidate, although I don't quite have the money for either anyway I'm thinking of a Rickenbacker HB-1 because I think Doug Ferguson (of Camel) played a Ric and I dug his tone also. I guess what it comes down to is, to approach Sinclair's sound, do I need a Jazz pup or does the HB-1 also work? Or would any bridge pickup work, for that matter? If so, I like the looks of Thunderbird pickups also... I'm a bit concerned about what I hear about PJs though when both pups are dimed, you know, the midscoop thing. I get the feeling Sinclair gets the opposite, a mid boost, or am I wrong? Does he have his Jazz wired in series, perhaps? Ah, so many questions... any help would be appreciated. Edit: To clarify, I love the P sound or else I wouldn't play one. However, I want more definition and growl, as a bottom line.
