Changing P pup to passive and adding J

  1. Hi Guys,
    i am considering making sokme changes to my 83 P bass which has an active EMG p pup i'm considering chnging the P to a passive maybe Fender vintage and also adding a vintage J for some growl. I assume with this i can mix the 2? Anyone done something like this?

    not sure what value the bass has but you might consider just getting a PJ if it amounts (or may amount) to anything. But sure you could do it.

    You might consider just trying a passive P pup first. Also to me EMG's sound a lot better with like a BTC pre installed.
