What's a good J pickup to match up with a Reverend P pickup?

    I want to convert my SX to a P/J bass, and I've decided to try to do this in a rather low-cost way, so I've decided to go with the 8.7K Reverend P pickup, but I need some ideas for a matching J bridge pickup.

    I'm sure that someone out there has done this. Any ideas?
     
  2. Doesn't Reverend make single coils as well as split coils? I figure those would make a good match, as they would be made in a similar fashion by the same company.

    They do, but only the neck J pickup. There would be a lot of space between the pickup and the cavity if you put a neck J pickup in the Bridge position. That, and the strings wouldn't match up with the poles. I wish they had a J bridge pickup available.

    I had a Reverend PJ that had a DiMarzio Model J in the bridge slot. I liked it well enough that I'm planning on putting that pickup into another Reverend PJ I've got (I restored the original Reverend J pickup). So I'd give a thumbs-up to the Model J matched up with a Reverend P pickup.

    How would you describe the overall tone? Vintage, or modern? I should have mentioned that I'm looking for more of a vintage-esque tone.
