    No. You should trade in this thread - which you posted in the DOUBLE BASS forum - for one just like it on the BASS GUITAR side. Need a hand?

    And a-WAAAAAAY we go....

    How about you save your money for once instead of buying stuff constantly which I've tend to notice you do. You could've had a really nice bass rig by now but you've spent it on so many different things! But I would choose a Hot Rod P-bass so trade it in and never trade again.

    Well, I have both. No, the HRP does not sound like a jazz with both pups full. It's a unique sound, one I liked soloed, but have never liked it much in a band situation. Maybe on 1-2 lines, and that was a borderline call.

    I find you turn the bridge pup about 75% and get a P with some bite. You turn only the P pup on to get, well a P. Those are really the only sounds I find useful from it.

    Of course, YMMV.

    Should you trade? Only if you love a P more than a Jazz.

    FYI: The Hot Rodded P-Bass has a P-Bass neck, not a Jazz. I've got one and love it, but the bass is more P than J.
