This P/J set was created to supply players with a satisfying grip on the tricky balance of tone that occurs with the precision and jazz combination. Their design is the truest representation of the P/J compromise, a simple combination that has become the shop recommended choice for when a player is first attempting to sustain the problematic paradigm of the P/J universe.
This pickup combination is the true formula for great vintage tone. Our standard NP4 placed beside our standard NJ4 is the simplest path to take if you are looking to achieve great old school vibes. Comparatively, in terms of our other P/J combos, like the NPVJ4SE or NPVJ4SV, their design is orchestrated around the manipulation of the vintage tone our NPJ4 embodies. In choosing these pickups, your bass will bleed tuneful timbre that resonates between the throaty presence of the NP4 and the pleasant high end of the NJ4—truly a pairing that is destined to give your P/J style defined character and nostalgic dimension.
