    I'm trying to see what this bass might sound like. Try to be subjective.

    SX SPJ-62 http://www.rondomusic.net/spj62.html
    Badass II Bridge http://www.guitarelectronics.com/c=cI9RcnxKGQTUvpr2eXzKbZuBy/product/BB4S3
    Bartolini p bass pickup 8s http://www.guitarelectronics.com/c=cI9RcnxKGQTUvpr2eXzKbZuBy/product/8S
    Bartolini j bass bridge pickup 9JL1 http://www.guitarelectronics.com/c=cI9RcnxKGQTUvpr2eXzKbZuBy/product/9JL1
    Replaced Pots with vol/blend/tone (dont know what values)

    All of that, but instead of the Barts, maybe quarter pounders. Comparing the two setups, which would be more suited for rock (hard/grunge/metal/punk) and what would they both sound like?

    TIA
     
  2. for hard edged sound, the SX would probably sound better with the QP's...

    the barts would give you a richer tone...

    but stop! before you go there...what kind of strings have you tried? from what I hear, the stock pups on an SX P/J aren't that bad and believe me, a decent set of strings makes a WORLD of difference.

    same thing with the bridge...if it's working ok, keep the stock one...nothing against Badass...they're GREAT...just that I like to see people use their hard-earned cash to its fullest potential.
     
  3. If you are playing rock, first off ditch the fender and get a rocker bass like an ibanez or such! :)

    Just kidding you get what you want. But on a more helpful note...from my limited knowlege that would be a pretty good combo. I know I would take it.

    I do agree with the bridge, but in the end, that might be the final plan for that bass.

    As for the pickups, I kind of expected someone to say that about those pickups. Maybe the Bartolini in the p position and the quarter pounder in the j position would give me a full sound with a little bite. Oh the possibilities...

    Anyone elses input is appreciated.
