    Hi
    I'am building a bass, P-bass style.
    Looking for a single pickup, not p-style, or musicman.
    Maybe a soapbar?
    Passive?
    Any thoughts?

    my main bass and the one I have on order are both a dual coil in the P spot :smug:

    Anthony Jackson'a Fodera is similar, G&L L-1000 were like that too

    depends on the sound you're going for. my main bass is basically a hot rodded tele bass. i used the duncan 1/4 pounder in it and love it. i play old school type rock. petty, neil young, rolling stones, that stuff.
     
  5. do you want a brighter sound or a fatter more growly sound. something like a j or an emg 35? just sayin not a P or an MM doesnt give much to work with. what type of sound do you want?
