    i`m building a bass and want it to sound different than the current basses that i`m playing, an 1980 ibanez roadster and a 70`s kramer aluminum neck (fretless) both have emg p/j setup. so far i`ve scored an axs neck (fender p type) and i`m going to order a warmoth body fender p type (alder).i want a deep warm tone. i was thinking on using a mm in the rear and a j at the neck perhaps bartolini`s or or semour duncans i`m i heading in the right direction? open to ideas thanx

    Wire the J and the MM in series? I don't think I've heard anything like that before.

    Good luck!
