Swapping neck pickup in a Fender PJ

Recommended Posts

Dudes, I have a Tony Franklin Precision Bass which has the PJ configuration. I am considering putting in a Seymour Duncan QP as the neck pick up as I want a harder hitting sound. Is it possible to swap on the neck pick up and leave the bridge pick up as supplied? Are there any downsides to doing that? Cheers.

Here's a pick of my bass for reference

Yes it is perfectly possible. The downside is that the balance between the two pickups may change. Could be better or worse but I suspect the QP will have a bit more output than a standard pickup.

What @Bassalarky said. The QP has a very high output, so if you use the stock jazz and QP together you'll notice a big drop in output from just the QP on its own.

You're probably be best to match the QP P pickup with a bridge QP Jazz pickup.
