Fretless J mod

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Jacoproud, Feb 22, 2002.

  1. I am about to get my P style fretless bass changed to have a P-J config and am just wondering what pickups to put in ( Passive only). I want to spend around 100 pounds ($143.23). I am looking for a jaco-ish tone for this pickup as my SD active pickup in the P postion covers the Bass frequencies pretty well.

    Thanks for the help guys!!

    Try getting the Lindy Fralin J-pickup. It is an exact copy down to the windings of a 60's Fender Jazz. They sound fantastic, and aren't too expensive. You can ask to get them wound "hotter", to imitate the sound Jaco got.
  3. jaco's only used his bridge j-pickup with the louder pots and put up all the bass on his amp. so yea put up the bass and just get a vintage fender 62' pickup.
