OK hear me out. I'm rebuilding my Dean explorer bass to have a dual P setup, and in the process I realized that having two P pickups is a perfect and infallible design. 1- Can sound good with any placement between the end of the neck and the bridge 2- Always follows the radius of the fretboard for most efficient sound capture 3- Because of the split design you can always center the two strings for each coil during installation no matter where in the neck taper you put them 4- Offset split design (in non reverse setup) means higher strings receive more treble response and lower strings receive more bass response 5- 100% hum cancelling in any configuration at all times 6- Offers all the benefits of a J bass if placed in the same relative locations with none of the downsides 7- Looks absolutely stunning and bada$$ 8- Fairly uncommon meaning you will always get compliments on your bass 9- Wiring to the pots acts like a humbucker but with no annoying wires you have to solder and tape together to wire the coils in series 10- Maximum area beneath the strings to use as a speed ramp short of putting in dual music mans 11- Using the neck pickup alone means you always have the P bass sound available to you without having to use a PJ 12- Relatively low pickup impedance compared to similar humbucker setups 13- Much more comfortable thumb anchor than a J pickup due to the mounting screw located at the end of each coil instead of on the top and bottom sides 14- Did I mention it looks amazing Literally WHY does no one talk about this setup? I can't think of anything wrong with it. Just try and prove me wrong, I bet you can't.
