Double Reverse P - some tips and advice form those in the know

Recommended Posts

So I’ve decided while many folks are on the abstinence tip for 2020 I’m gonna do a Reverse Double P build. I’m not sure if it sounds like a skateboarding move or a sub-genre of porn but I’ll persevere with an internet search soon just not on the work pc!

Im just wondering would it make sense to have a higher out put bridge position p and more traditional output in the classic position a la pj config or two similar matched pick ups in terms of output. 
 

I’ve got three pick ups I’m gonna choose from, two more vintage and a higher output  one. Two will go into the Double and the third back into my other standard (now a reverse) p. 
 

Look forward to your collective insight especially current double p users.

Key is how you want to balance the tone/wiring

I tone knob to rule them both with a Vol vol approach, separate tone knobs for each, fully passive, pop a preamp in, push pulls, stacked knobs, a push/pull series parallel etc.

Thats the real fun!

When I converted my old Roadworn to P/P I just went with a Seymour Duncan SPB1 and matched the outputs through pickup height. I originally had it as a VVT, but eventually changed to a VT plus 3 way selector as any subtle differences in the blend were lost in a band setting.

Nice. I was thinking four way rotary bridge, both series, both parallel, neck. All housed on a PJ style three hole plate and maybe move the jack plug a la a PJ!

Well my build won’t cost upwards of £3000 but yes the switching is Dingwall inspired the similarities however  end there 😀

Dingwall pick-ups are also split-coil pickups like the P-Bass ones...the Combustion is basically a double P hidden underneath those bars. :)

Yup I’ve owned a Combustion and a Super PZ5 was my main gigging bass for about 5 years. The Super P was much more suited to my ear tone wise, not quite as modern.
