I have a cheap but rather nice five string Vintage AV4+1 Bass Guitar (One of the Trevor Wilkinson ones). It t incorporates a precision bass neck with a jazz bass body. My tech also installed a bone nut.
I wanted hum-cancelling pickups and we therefore installed a pair of Bartolini 57J1 L/S split coil pickups - these have side-by-side dual inline hum-cancelling coils (but look like Jazz Bass pickups - without the 'offset' of the Precision Bass pickup).
I’ve always liked the sound of the precision bass and I was particularly impressed by the sound that Wayne Banks got at the Classic Rock Show gig in Norwich. Pretty much the best bass sound I've heard at any gig - period.
Given the architecture of my pickups, I find myself wondering whether the neck pick up will give me a close enough approximation of a Precision Bass...?
