Why is this?

I have a really cheap P knockoff, and an active P/J:

(and a horribly messy room)

 

 

One is a great knock around bass, the other is a great instrument all 'round.

 

But..... Now, I want a str8 up passive P. And maybe a sr8 up passive J. I love the P/J to tears, really I do!

 

 

:cry:

 

 

Why oh why? Why can't I just play the f**k out of what I have and be happy?

Put a active/passive switch in your PJ. Problem solved.

 

 

 

Working on that. I'm going to pull the pickguard (and trace it for a replacement) before the next Mouser/Jameco/Futurlec order. I think I can replace the volume pot with a DPDT push-pull and rewire it to go active/passive. Otherwise, the replacement pickguard could have an improvision for a mini toggle switch. I'll have to look at it and see how it's set up.

 

 

 

But still. Sometimes I just want a plain ole P bass. Butterscotch blonde with a one-piece black pickguard. No frills. No active nothing. One sound, but a good one. That's what Rock N Roll was built on.

You've nailed the porn star, but you still want the girl next door...
