    Hey, I'm writing because I have an American Series Jazz bass and I would like to add a little more of a P-Bass low mid/bass punch from the pickups - something that will give me a sort of Sex Pistols kind of tone, while still being able to have a Jazz bass' growl and sharp top end. Any reccomendations for new pickups? (preferably only from people who've actually used them...)
  2. Add a J-Retro pickup or buy a P-bass.

    I was never able to get a good P tone from RB5 (jazz) bass, so I bought a P.

    A J-Retro pickup will do wonderous things to your J and might be the ticket. I don't think a pickup swap is going to get what you want.

    If I am not mistaken, Bartolini makes a P-Bass pickup shaped like a Jazz pup - that might do the trick.
