Is MM+J best of both worlds?

    Oddly, I haven't had a chance to play a bass with MM+J pickups. Can that combination sound like both Jazz Bass and Musicman, assuming that the MM is coil-splittable?

    Part of the Jazz tone is the bridge pickup growl. I don't think you can get the same tone from the MM pickup split. But ..... it is a great combination with a lot of useful tones.
