    I am thinking about getting a P-Bass. I like the idea of a P/J but I already have a Jazz Bass and if I want a Jazz Bass sound I'll play that. I'm not particularly impressed with BC Rich basses, but I'm intrigued by the two P-Bass pickup design. How would a two P-Bass pickup bass sound? How could I economically and fairly easily route out a cavity for an additional P-Bass pickup in an alder body SX P-Bass? I have a Dremel tool with a router attachment and I know you can get acrylic templates at Stewmac.com. How would I go about the routing so that it looks professional and not like a hatchet job?

    Thanks!
