    Does anyone have any experience with or pictures of a Precision bass with P Pups + Neck and Bridge J pups. If you count the P Pups as 2 rather than 1 and add the J Pups. That would be a total of 4 Pups.

    I'm picturing something like a Fender Aerodyne with an extra Jazz Pickup above the Precision pickup in the neck position.

    Anyone have info on a project such as this?

    Fender Stu Hamm Urge (and Urge II). Great basses.

    Yes, that's the idea! Calling it a J-P-J makes more sense, thanks.

    That setup with series/parallel switchs in a passive pickup design. Or maybe a sidewinder type of J shape pickup in the neck position. SGD pickups seems to make a nice one for that position. Would be something I'd really like to try building for an all in one fender sound.

    Maybe even a Jbass chambered body from Warmoth to go with it =)

    This Fender Stu Hamm Urge II bass led me on a trip to some other killer guitar designs.

    First:This looks like the perfect bass for coffee shops! http://www.washburn.com/products/basses/sh/ab40sh.php

    Second: Where is a version of the guitar design in this picture for acoustic bass with a second small sound hole near the elbow end of the body? It should be made Aexside1100.

    Third: This would make a stand out bass for sure

    Forth: Somehow i came upon this gem of a video while searching for Stu Hamm BX3. It's Bill Dickens explaining his Buddha training technique. I'm all about adding different things to my training regiment, and this one seems like it would add a bit of FUN and Newness to practicing.

    Ok ok i know i got off topic, but any show of J-P-J projects would be killer to see and talk about. Hope i didn't detract too much from the original topic. :bassist:
