Quarter Pounder P/J Pickup Question.

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Ralphieboy57, Dec 21, 2017.

  1. I have a Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar P/J Bass. Its the model that has the 2 concentric pots in it. I recently up graded to SD QPs. Question is the I purchased the P-Pickup separately from the J-Pickup and not in a matching set.Would the stock wiring work or do I have to reverse the + and - wires on the J-Pickup to eliminate hum?

    Thank you for any feedback on this.

    P/J sets don't work like that.
    The two halves of the P humbuck, but for the P only.
    A single coil J pickup does not buck hum unless it's matched up with a reverse wound reverse polarity single coil pickup.
