Incredibly popular pickup combination
The split-p and j-style single-coil pickup combination is one of the most popular pairings for bassists in many different styles. The neck pickup delivers the midrange-focused growl and low end that is required in a bassist’s arsenal. The single-coil in the bridge position adds attack and definition to your tone. And by soloing that pickup you’ll enjoy Jaco-like higher-end punch. Use the blend knob and you’ll be able to conjure any balance of the two pickups that you desire.
