    I have a stock Musicman pickup out of a Sterling, and I'm thinking of putting it on a parts bass and want to add a J pickup at the neck.

    What do I have to consider as far as output, impedence etc....?

    FWIW:

    I assume the Sterling would go in the bridge and J for neck. I doubt you'd run into any issues with impedence or volume in that set up cause most any J is 7K or better, except maybe Barts (and they're not that far removed). May be more of a problem in volume balance depending on how you play if they're reversed.
