    are a pair of J pickups set alongside one another about equal in tonality to a humbucker?

    I would say yes, remembering as example the tobias growler, wich had a double-J pickup in the usual MM spot, and had one preamp for each J-side. Sweet!

    Fender does that on the American P-Bass Deluxe and the Roscoe Beck models.

    I assume that is their version of a Humbucker.

    Yep, except typically with more definition along the lines of the difference between a stacked J HB and single J - if you use single J's that is. I did it in my MM experment or J pup experiment - can't remember which.
