Should I modify my Fender Jazz Deluxe V into a PJ?

    The title pretty much asks it all. Additional info includes that I am currently deep in jazz 5 strings, I love the neck on the Fender, and the only thing on my Fender that leaves me meh is the neck pickup and I always favor the bridge pickup when I play out. Also I would have Mike Lull's shop do all the work and I am confident that all modifications would be and look professional. I would appreciate your opinions and experiences. Cheers.

    If Mike Lull's shop is doing the work pick your favorite Jazz and have them put in a P pickup and a bridge humbucker of some sort. I would go with a Nordstrand P pickup and a Big Split or a Bigman.

    You know their work is going to be impeccable, whatever you choose. You may as well make your favorite playing bass your favorielte sounding bass.
