  1. I am playing a fender p with a p-j pset up and am currently getting some 1/4 pounders basslines put in.. and the sales person said i should also put s stack jazz pick-up also to replace the original..

    Will this make a huge difference by putting both the 1/4 pounder and a stack pick-up improve my sound?

    I'd get both pups replaced to keep the output balanced as the 1/4 pounders tend to be hotter than most. SD sells a nice balanced 1/4 pounder P/J set, I'm not sure if the J is stacked or not but that's what I would shoot for.
    It will definitely make a difference in sound - be sure that it's the sound you're looking for though, these will likely be hotter and more aggresive than what you have now.

    I think the sales person suggested the stack J pickup for reduced noise. That's what I'd go for in a PJ set up. The PJs that I've tried that used a non noise cancelling bridge pickup design got noisy when the J was brought into the mix.
