    I have an ibanez roadstar II p-bass, but i want to add a Jazz pick-up. Is this possible, and if it is, where would i go to get it done? (i live in norfolk, england!)

    Also, if anyone could reccomend some funky tunes or riffs, or tips on how to play funk, I would appreciate it.
  2. Funk on a P bass is exactly where it all started. Try something from the Bros. Johnson or nearly any tune from Tower of Power. Rocco Prestia did all of that on a P!

    You *should* be able to find a tech who's handy with a router and a solder gun somewhere local. Then all you need is to order the PU and the extra hardware (you'll need another vol. knob and pot at the very least).
