    Hey guys. So I've got a Fender MIM Jazz bass. I am trying to mod it to get the best of both Fender tones. First thing I'm doing is replacing the bridge with a badass ii bridge. I want to have a tone that is capable of deep, agressive sounds as well as the smooth jazz tones of the j bass. I have been suggested to put a jazz pickup in the neck position and a p bass pickup in the bridge position. Have you guys heard of the combination, and has it been successful? I've always heard that the PJ combinations are normally P in the neck and J in the bridge. The guy who makes the pickups made the recommendation though.

    What do you guys think?
  2. I think I would like some of what he's smokin'.

    Those skimpy little stock bridges work just fine . The badass is not an improvement .

    If it sounds like a horrible proposition, what do you suggest to get the desired sound?

    The bridge is currently broken, because the previous owner was a bit aggressive.
  6. Agreed, a larger mass bridge won't have much of an affect compared to the pup locations you're talking about. P pup in the sweet spot is both deep and aggressive, maybe a reverse P if you want something different. And a J at the bridge is the other part.
