I have the chance to buy (very cheaply) a home made (custom built?) "pbass" the current pickups are horrid, the worst I have ever heard, I mean really suck. The thought is to buy it ,as the neck is beatiful, intonation is excellent and the strings drive the body well and un amplified it sounds very good. I have never owned a combo pick up set up like a P&J, but I might give it a go. Otherwise I will toss in some p bass equal. the sound that I would be after is the basic Pbass of the late 60's with a touch of note definition. Thoughts and ideas welcome. Thank You, Wesley R.
