    Love the growl of MIA Jazz tone, but also like punch of P-bass. I am afraid if I go with P-J setup it will be too bright punchy, however, with Jazz tone coming only from bridge.

    I am thinking of getting a custom bass made with MM-styled humbucker in bridge position with Jazz pickup in neck position for good, thunderous rock tone.

    Anyone use this configuration? I want growl of Jazz but with fuller HB type sound.

    Thanks.
