I have a PJ'ed fretless Yamaha BB1200. The P is the stock pickup, the J a Shadow. I quite like the Shadow. It's punchy and has sufficient bite. But the stock P pup is not so good. Bass deficient, over smooth and totally un P-like. I have narrowed down the options to changing the P for a Fender pickup (Fender make the best passive P bass pups IMO) or scrapping it all and going for an EMG PJ set. Now, I really go for the Fender P sound. But on fretted basses. The Fender P has a tendency to indistinctness on fretless basses. But, on the other hand, does the EMG P pickup have the rich texture of sound you get out of a Fender P, and does the EMG J pup have aggressive bite? The only active PJ set I have experience of is the Seymour Duncan one, and that is MUCH to clinical for my taste. I want a P sound like a 20 year old single malt whisky and a J sound that has a bit of growl and bite to it. Cam anyone help here?
