    I'm about to order the SX fretless modeled after the 1962 fender jazz, and i got a pretty crazy idea. i have two early 70's kay humbuckers that came off of an SG style bass, and i thought that with a little routing i could replace the neck p-up on the SX with a vintage humbucker and get a really warm sound. I was also planning on replacing the bridge p-up with a basslines quarter pounder or a vintage basslines pickup. do think that this would be an effective combination?

    this def falls under the "one way to find out" theory

    You will never know till you try it...

    that's what i guess i'll have to do, but if it doesn't work out it'll be a bummer to have the space routed out...i guess i should just go for it.

    Just remember that the output of the two pickups probably won't match. Just something to consider.

    You could always add a second jack and concentric knobs and go stereo. I'm thinking of maybe doing that with the SX I just ordered and having seperate outputs for passive and active pickups just for fun. To be fair I haven't finalized what I'm going to do with it but a Frankenbass it shall be.
