Hey guys, just a quick question. I'm making a T-Bird with J pups and i'm just thinking of pickup placement. Now, I want as much growl as I can from this bass, so I'm thinking of angling one of the J's, like on thumb basses, BUT the OTHER way. ANOTHER reason for this is, before I planed down my neck peice of walnut, all looked fine, now, theres a pretty big knot in the wood, about an inch or two out from where the bridge will be. At first, I thought i'd put a pickup there and route it out, then I got some measurements wrong somehow and had to move the neck peice up, this in turn moved the knot up. Now it's kind of too far out from the Bridge for the bridge pup to go, and no far enough for a normal placed neck pup. So i'm once again thinking of putting a second bridge pup where the knot is, on a diagonal angle. What do you guys think? Would it work? Would the two pups be too close together near the bridge (if theres such a thing)? Or would routing out a knot be a bad idea? Heres what I mean: Except the second pup would cover all the knot hopefully. Cheers guys. BTW: Another option I was thinking might work is like the Thumb 5 pickups. And angle them both like that, putting the first bridge pup over the knot.. Would that be better?
