    I have been toying with the idea of making a bass that has two MusicMan style pickups, but also has the coil splitter switch like the Sterling and Stingray 5, and a pan pot. Why you ask? It could make it like a MusicMan, but have the tone variability and versatility of a Jass bass.

    My question is this. Is the pickup on a MusicMan normally placed so that one of the coils is placed close the the placement of the bridge pickup of a jazz bass? Or is it placed between where the two jazz pickups are normally placed?

    I don't own a MM so I can't tell.

    Why don't you just get a G&L? Sounds like that's what you're describing.

    The G&L basses do not have a single coil switch position. They only have Serial and Parallel Positions.

    It is closer to the Roscoe Beck Fender. This bass does not have a pan pot or a preamp though.
