    Typically manufacturers just take one of their Ps and bridge J pups to make a PJ set. Personally I would try and stick with a J pup that was sold in a PJ set that matches the P you have - but you can definitely stick about any J pup in. The results would just be harder to predict.

    I would make sure to get a humbucking J for the bridge or any time you add it to the mix there will be hum.

    I'm fond of the SD hot stack but there's about a dozen or more that will work well.
