Figured I'd get some considered opinions here... I pulled the trigger today on a Fender American Standard Precision V. Rosewood, nice, light alder body (8 lbs even!). I've never been comfortable on P bass necks, but I could use a P for sessions and some of the live work I do, and I haven't had a 5-string for a while (long story). Could use that too, so I got this P5. It's an '07 with '08 upgrades (one of the first with the '08 specs), NOS, so brand spankin' new. I'm lovin' it. 5-string neck is, well, a 5-string neck, so no P spacing or 4-string width to deal with, and it sounds KILLER. I've had Sadowskys, EBMMs... lots of good basses, but this may take the cake. Graphite rods, man... mile-deep fundamental on every note. Not to mention I got an embarrassingly good deal on it - significantly less for new than I see them for used on TB. Anyhow... I figured going in that I might add a jazz pickup in the bridge position. I love the mix and versatility of a PJ. Thought I'd put a stack knob in the volume position (like from a '62 RI), so I wouldn't have to screw up the pickguard. I like the sound of the stock P pickup a lot, and want to get a J that compliments it well in terms of tone and volume. Also, I don't think a J will hum cancel in partnership with a P (like a pair of Js does... correct me if I'm wrong). I know there's a Bart' with two coils end-to-end, but I'm not sure how that would blend/balance with the P. Any thoughts? Maybe a Duncan stack? I appreciate any input. These American Standard models just ROCK. I have a 4-string jazz, maple neck, and it's a great bass too. Who'd-a thunk it? Excited about the new Fenders!
