    The routing in my neck position is 1.5" while bridge position is standard jazz width. Can I put a soapbar in the neck spot and a jazz at the bridge? I'm wondering if these would wire up OK. I'd love to get the fat warm sound of a soapbar at the neck while still maintaining the growly mid of a traditional jazz at the bridge. Plus then there'd be no space in the bridge position. I took the pickguard off but with the standard jazz pups there's all this extra space. I figure a soapbar would fill that in. Sound however is of course more important than looks. Thanks.

    no reason why those wouldn't wire up ok, just don't mix and match active and passive pickups unless you have a preamp such as the J-Retro which let's you do that.
