Difference in double j pick up and single j pick up?

  1. Saw a Deluxe P-bass today with a double jazz pick up and remembered playing one with a single jazz. What's the difference in the two?

    The double jazz is wired as a humbucker, as opposed to a single coil. That's about it. They sound different, as in one sounds like a humbucker and one sounds like a single coil. I'll let you guess which. ;)
