Can I get a little P/J love?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by IotaNet, Dec 2, 2006.

  1. Y'know, this is my second P/J and I am really starting to feel the whole P/J thing. You get some thump to go with your growl and a good look to boot!

    This one has a Fender Noiseless at the bridge and DiMarzio DP122's at the neck. Add some Elixirs to the mix and she is sounding good and looking like a champ!

    Can I get some love?


    Oh, by the way -- this is an SX!

    Love the PJ. I have a Fender P-Special mod/project bass in the works.
  3. Anybody who has Miles in his/her avatar can expect some love from me. :smug:

    And yes, the P/J looks damn sexy. Mine is a Yamaha BB414 in metallic orange - love the range of sounds I can get from it. One of these days I´ll get me a Fender P/J with a maple fretboard... :cool:

    Nice one, Iota.

    For a long time I was GAS-ing hard for a 5-string P/J.

    Send that sweet baby my way and I assure you I will magically transform into Barry White.

    I really like resting my thumb on P pickups (especially reversed ones), and love J bridge tone.

    PJ rules. I wish someone made a Reverse P/70's J location bass... perfect bass.

    I find the P/J setup to be pretty good at times! I had it on my last fretless, and I liked it in that you could get a nice old school thump from the P pickup but I was kinda irked that I couldn't have a jazz tone at the neck too. Now I'm a humbuckers or jazz bars kinda guy!

    Here is a bass which I quite like (and nearly bought) which has a sweet P/J setup. One of the best sounding Warwicks I've ever played! NB The one I nearly bought was blue.

    My Ibanez Roadster 824 (mahogany body/maple FP) has itself lotsa switches... active / passive, and neck/both/bridge.

    The bridge on that thing doesn't growl like a jazz, it does this burpy funk thing that sounds like Stevie Wonder on a Hohner D-6. That sound alone makes me want to put down my upright and join a funk wedding band so I can throw that switch to the bridge and step to the front o' the stage!

    Haven't strung it with flats yet, though. ANy opinions on PJ plus Flats?
  9. A pointy P/J :eek:

    I have this one apart right now. The stock pups are out, Dimarzios are going in along with a fresh set of Hybrid Slinky's. It's gonna RAWK :bassist:

    When I finally sell some of my basses and cabs I'm not using I'll definitely be dropping some cash on a P/J!

    I'm lovin this P/J. Especially with sadowsky flats!

  19. It's really not that bad. Not nearly like some of the BCR's I've had over the years. It's very light and no matter how I play it, my arm/elbow rests on the body wing. It's got an awesome neck and action, I never even notice any neck dive.
