    Wow this rapidly expanded my dream bass search of a P/MM. I'm curious say I wanted them overwound a bit so that they sounded darker or underwound it or whatever it is. Is there anyway I could make a Jazz pup sound like a slightly overwound P pup?

    Like an over wound P pickup, or like a P?

    Ps are overwound compared to Js.

    But yeah, that's real easy to do.
     
  4. Hey Guys,
    The pickup(s) still need to be potted and magnetized. I will definitely post sound clips when the project is finished. The pickup pictured is for the bridge position. I plan on doing a neck pickup as well, but want to finish this one up first and see how it sounds.
