  1. Hey yeah I'm lazy, took me a week to get around to posting this.

    I was bored last week, so I got a screwdriver and took apart my bass.

    I mean, I take apart all my stuff. Even my tv. I shocked myself haha. Oh well that's how ya learn...

    Anyway. I have a P/J setup. So I unscrewed both pups and put one of them underneat the strings one at a time...to see the tonal differences ya know?

    Then I noticed that when I took out the P pups...and put the J underneath the strings...it wasn't WORKING!

    I mean good god. All the wires are connected, everything seems ok.

    Course, I got it and a amp for $200 so whaddya expect.

    So basicly I'm only playing through a set of P pickups.

    Is this right? I mean...I should have bought that Fender J pup at the store just cuz I could have afforded it..but I didn't...damn shoulda done it!
