    i have been trying to work out a complex electronics system for a project involving 2 sets of different sounding jazz pups, and makinging them into humbuckers, but when i added up the cost, it came to be too much. i figured it would be best for the walet if i choose one of the sets, and tried to get every inch of versatility out of it instead.
    the sound i am looking for is that close to an upright. the bass is fretless, hollow bodied singlecut neck throu, ironwood nut and finderboard. i want to be able to get a good melow jazzy sound, plus be able to get the edgy modern sound. what all could i put into the controls for the QP set for that range? i do not have much experence in jazz bass, but i hear they are very versatile, little experience in the electronics area too. still thinking about weather to do 1 set or 2, just seeing witch one sound better for me
