    I'm a recent convert to the P/J thing, and now it's become an obsession.:hyper: I want to see your P/J Precision basses, so whip 'em out, boys and girls.

    I'll start it off here:

    I thought I had a pic of her solo, but can't find it. This will have to do. '83 Fullerton '57RI with Fralin P/Js.

    This is great! Keep 'em coming!

    I'm really digging how versatile a tone it is. I've been moving towards a fatter, (as Bryan Beller puts it) more "chocolate tone" than the jazz bass I used for 15 years. I added Bill Lawrence pickups and it is SO hitting the spot right now. And I also dig how I haven't lost any of that classic P tone (which I've always thought of as a one-trick pony, albeit it an AWESOME trick), I've just opened it up a bit.

    Why did you all go P/J?

    '10 Fender MIA P/J with MJS custom pickups (originally a standard P):

    '86 Fender MIJ PJ Bass:

    I typically have the bridge pickup on full, neck pickup at about 80% volume. Hum? yeah, that's the beauty of true single coils. Not a problem at all for me personally :)

    It started out as a J/J on P body and I turned it into this:

    I wouldn't, especially with a tortoise pickguard. If they're cleanly removable, then there's little risk in doing it if you want to give it a try.
