I think I've seen a P/J/J bass. Are there any Strat-type basses with three Js?
The Schecter Hellcat has 3 lipstick pickups.
LeFay makes a three-pickup bass-I believe it's the Remington model.
There's also the Burns Bison bass.
fatdawg makes a 3xjazz bass. Fretless, if I remember correctlyq
PRS made a three pickup bass, I don't know if they still do.
Fender's Stu Hamm Urge II
Yup, the p'ups go J/P/J
Good initials if you think about it.
Ummm... oh yeah.
my grabber 3 has 3 piezo style "jazz" pups
I remembered seeing billy cox on "rising low" play this one:
also remember... when buying a bass, the more pickups, the better the bass! the btter you will be!
Fender made the HM (heavy metal) basses with 3 Jazz p/ups. It had a P-bass body with a Jazz neck, I think. There is a 5'er on Ebay right now, if I'm not mistaken.
My Burns Bison has 3.
The original London Bisons in the 60's always had 3. Jim Burns was WAY ahead of his time!
If three is good, is five better?
Funny, i've heard the exact opposite, in a bass the more pickups might mean the less sound. I think its because the increased radius of the strings that cause this, but in a bass the tone doesn't change dramatically from neck to brdige so the most variety in tone you can get, you can get with two pups. j/p/j might give a variety but it wouldn't be mostly because of the placement but because of the tonal difference of a j and a p. And don't forget, if it would be something good, most manifacturers might have done it. And also don't forget that leo fender put three in a strat and only one in a "p" and stingray, and only two in a jazz and gl2000, that must mean something.Also many luthiers design their basses with two pups and say that they give enough versatility to the bass (ie.: JP)
(most of this is quoted from rickbass's pm )
i was being sarcastic, just so you know- its from a thread about idiotically [is that even a word?] retarded.
anyway personally it really doesnt make that much of a difference to me. however, the sound of those pups make is what does.
oh and if it has like 25 strings its like... hallelujah! Yknow... man totally rad!
Soryy, i took it really literally coz i was thinking about putting in three pups in my bass really seriouslyh about 3 months ago, but then decided not to do it....
