    Typed in P/J club, P/J thread and nothing came up. If there is a thread covering P/J basses (of any brand) - I'll close this down but since it is a very popular pu configuration it probably deserves its own thread. If it turns into a thread - no numbers, just pics. I only have one (below) - feel free to post your P/J bass of any brand. FTR, Fender initiated the P and J pu (in that style/configuration) but wasn't the first to do a P/J bass. Not sure which company was "the first" to commercial produce one, but players in the late 60's/early 70's started adding a J bridge pu to their P-bass as a 'player mod' and companies started catching on.

    I took a chance on this bass and my head's still spinning because of how good it sounds and plays. Screen Shot 2019-12-02 at 2.14.29 PM.png

    I put this one together recently. Late ‘90s MIM body and electronics, aftermarket Jazz neck (seller thought it was a StewMac). Still needs some adjusting to get the action a bit lower, and eventually I’d like to put Fralin pups in, but it sounds pretty good as is!
