Hi guys, This is probably a dumb question but I've never come across this before and I was wondering if its common practice? Anyway, I recently purchased a GORGEOUS MIA Fender Fretless Jazz bass off a pro gigging/session buddy of mine and I've discovered he has it setup in a really unique configuration, basically its a defretted (with the ole Jaco epoxy on the fingerboard) 97 Fender Jazz with a badass2 bridge so it has this gorgeous singing tone and amazing sustain (the epoxy really does change the character of the tone). The thing which impressed me the most is that he replaced the stock Fender Jazz pickups with 2 Dimarrzios (sp), the bridge pup is a Jazz and the neck is a Precision pup....its incredible..with both pups up full I get the Jazz bass tone but with a little extra 'ooomph', if I back off the neck pup I get the pure Jaco tone BUT if I solo the neck pup I get the Jamerson/Motown sound It really is amazing and all in one bass. So I was wondering is this kinda pickup configuration common?..It really has to be heard to be believed, I mean why bother buying a P and a J bass when you can setup one instrument like this? Or is this an exception? Interested in hearing your thoughts on this cheers.
