I recently Purchased a Fender American Hot Rodded Precision. It came with a set of Duncan Bass Lines Installed plus the original PUPS. Here is my Delima. I had read here that the factory PUPS were a bit of a compramise, that the P was way less Hot to accomodate the weaker J thus these Basses tend to sound Pretty good with both up full but not paticularly good using either the P or J alone. I have not heard it with the Factory PUPS yet. Now to the Duncans. The Bass Lines are STK-J2 Hot Stack (bridge) and the SPB-3 Quarter Pound for P Bass. Here is what I am hearing and what I'd like to be hearing. Neither Pup seems very Hot at all especially with either alone. Together it sounds much better and has a slight Twang from the Bridge PUP that I like but do not want all the time. The P pickup alone is not at all what I would call classic P Tone which is what I am looking for and then be able to add the J bridge for some different tones. My CIJ 53 reissue with it's vintage style Japan made single coil is much more interesting sounding/ fuller/even and way hotter than the Duncan P in the P J Bass. I'm not looking for the exact same tone but just want that classic Vintage P Bass Tone and be able to add the J to taste. Do I just change the P and keep the J or do I change both? Neither do anything special for me but both together sound good. Any suggestions on some other Pickups? Both of my Basses have Ash Bodies, the CIJ has a Maple Board and the American H R has a Rosewood Board. Please help! Thank you sincerely in advance.
