    Hey!I was thinking about getting a fender (4 string this time) p bass special. Im not sure if theyre mexican made or american made, but they have a gold pickguard. persoanlly, i dont like the pickguard and would immediately replace it. also, i want to switch the jazz bass pickup with a noiseless fender jazz. if i did this would i still get hum from soloing the p bass pup and the jazz pup? also, would haveing a p bass body make a noticealbe diffrence in the jazz bass sound from the j pup? keep in mind ill probobly end up soloing the pups and hum is definitly an issue.
