Is this a Jazz bass?

  1. Does the S1 switch on the P bass turn the pup into a Jazz pup?
    I was thinking of putting one in my bass with the PJ set up.

    That way it would be a Jazz bass.
    Sound right?

    No, the S1 switch doesn't turn the P pickup into a J pickup.

    S-1 switch is a series/parallel switch. For more info on that, check out the Pickups forum.

    As far as converting it into a jazz bass, I don't think so. I call a bass it's name based on the body shape, not the pickups.
